This past New Years Eve, a group of my friends and myself made a trip to Boston where another one of our friends lives. We stayed for two days and then made our way to NYC for New Years. Before the trip I was honestly more excited to see NYC since I had never been, but I have to say Boston really surprised me. It was nothing like I expected. Boston has the perfect mix of colonial history with modern innovations. This city with its cobble streets and location on the water is perfect for your next weekend getaway.
3 Reasons You Should Visit Boston:
- Boston has so many things to do! Museums: The New England Aquarium, Museum of Science, The Boston Tea Party Ship & Museum, Boston Children’s Museum, and the Kennedy Library. We went to the Kennedy Library and all thought it was really interesting. You can also take a trip over to Harvard. You can also check out the Freedom Trail.
- The food is amazing! With fresh lobster (umm hello lobster mac n’ cheese), clam chowder, bagels, and Boston cream pie how could you not want to come?? Roxie’s Grilled Cheese is another favorite for their delicious grilled cheese and truffle fries. If you love donuts like I do then add Union Square Donuts to your list. They even have a peanut butter and jelly one.
- Did I already mention the cobble stone streets? The vibe this city has is really amazing and it has the views to back it up. Something about a city skyline on water really gets me. There are also so many unique shops in the city to check out. Going down the winding small streets and finding a cute bookstore was probably one of my favorite moments.
Going to Boston in the fall is definitely on my bucket list. It was amazing in the winter (but really cold) so I can only imagine what it would look like with fall foliage. What cities have you visited that surprised you?
I will be sharing the rest of our trip, NYC in my next post!
