Boston, I love you.

After sitting at the top of bucket list for quite some time, I finally made it to Boston and it was even better than I imagined! I had been set on visiting in the Fall for a long time, but the weather in June was perfect. I was surprised that I actually needed a sweatshirt at times. Boston is full of history and there are so many things to do. I could listen to Boston accents all day. Here is a quick recap of my weekend in Boston:


Red Sox Game

The night we arrived, we went to Fenway Park to watch the Boston Red Sox play the St. Louis Cardinals. Next to the park they have a street of bars and restaurants. If we had more time, that is something I would have loved to experience before or after the game. The fans were so excited and into the game! The Red Sox WON!


Harvard

We bought a day pass for the "T", which is the train in Boston. Our first stop was Harvard Square. The architecture was beautiful and I really enjoyed browsing in some of the stores around the square.


Acorn Street/ Beacon Hill

Acorn street has been said to be the most photographed street in all of Boston. There were a lot of cute stores around Beacon Hill!


Quincy Market

The market house opened to the public on August 26, 1826. In the mid 19th century, due to the expansion of Boston’s border Quincy Market was turned to wholesale. Today, Quincy Market serves Boston with lots of good food, shopping and being a good place for hanging out.


Harborwalk

The Boston Harborwalk is a continuous 43 mile public walkway along all of the Boston Neighborhoods. We just walked a small portion starting by the aquarium, but it was really cool to walk along the water.


Mary Baker Eddy Library

We went to the Mary Baker Eddy Library to see the Mapparium. It is a stained glass globe made in 1935 that is 3 stories tall. You aren't allowed to take photos, but it was definitely worth the $6 to see.


After the Mapparium we walked along Newbury Street where we went in some shops and got donuts at Mochi Dough. We ended the day back by Fenway Park where we visited Loretta's Last Call, Boston's very own Honky Tonk. It made me feel right at home!


We stayed in the Courtyard by Marriott across from TD Garden. We actually has an issue on the way and booked the hotel 20 minutes outside of Boston. It was very clean, the staff was friendly, and it was in a good location! I wish we had more time to spend in Boston, but we did the most we could in one full day. I can't wait to go back!
