Shipping up to Boston

We fell in love with Boston immediately. We spent a long weekend in Boston for our cousin’s 40th birthday and we had an amazing four days. I hadn’t been to Boston since I was about ten, so everything seemed brand new to me and vaguely familiar at the same time. I remembered the little discolored bricks of the Freedom Trail the second I saw
them, but the stops along the way meant something much different to me twenty years later.

We rented a condo from AirBnB in the North end, right on Hanover Street, and we were surrounded by Italian restaurants and pastry and wine shops. Definitely not the best place to start a diet. We spent our days walking the town and our nights eating in little Italian restaurants (Giacomo’s definitely did not disappoint) and bar hopping between the Green Dragon Tavern and the Bell in Hand Tavern, two of the oldest pubs in America.

My absolute favorite part of the trip was walking through Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden to Beacon Hill. The park was full of life – dogs and kids playing together, friends running, yoga classes, boat rides across the pond. And Beacon Hill was simply breathtaking – the cobblestone streets, the red brick row homes, and the beautiful flowers were such a perfect combination. If I could live anywhere, it would definitely be on Acorn Street in Beacon Hill.

Three days wasn’t nearly enough time to see all that Boston has to offer. I can’t wait to go back to see even more in the future… maybe for my own 40th?! 🙂
