Having lived seven years of my life in Boston I am elated to go visit as a tourist! It has been years since I visited up there and since the kids have a long weekend off in March, we decided it is time to see Bean Town.
We are staying close to Boston Common and plan on doing a lot of walking, no matter the weather. Walking the Freedom Trail is always a joy for this history buff! I’ve never been to the gravesite of Paul Revere at the Granary Burying Ground, therefore that’ll be close to first on my list of places. Also buried there are Samuel Adams and John Hancock.
My children remember visiting the duck statues in the garden and requested that visit; I adore desserts in the North End and taking in Faneuil Hall, both memories from visiting in my childhood, and look forward to those indulgences.
Also at the top of my list is visiting the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, somewhere I’ve never been before. Looks stunning there! Strolling up and down Newbury Street is a fun way to spend a couple of hours as well. I used to work in the Copley Square area and remember spending lunch hours walking around the Boston Public Library, a beautiful place itself. Ahh, the days of lunch hours and living the corporate world life. Time before I had children feels like a different life. I guess it was 🙂
