I am very excited to share a bit about our Boston trip! It was so awesome. It was a first time for both of us visiting the city and it was so neat exploring it together. We flew in late on a Wednesday night so we slept in a bit before heading into the city the next morning. We saved money by staying in Chelsea instead of right in the city (we used credit card points for our hotel and we only had to pay for one night!) Plus, we almost always fly Southwest (if it’s domestic of course) so we flew for free because of having points! If you have any questions on how we manage to do this you can always ask! Every morning we started our day taking the ‘T’ (their subway) to Fenuiel Hall and Quincy Market. We literally ate there every single day. Lemme tell ya…the food was so good and there were many options. We took a tour of Fenway Park that day which was a highlight of the trip for sure. We’re both big baseball fans and that’s the reason we picked a trip to Boston to begin with!
After our tour of Fenway we stopped and ate at Wahlburgers and ohhhh my gosh it was the yummiest! One just opened up in Orlando and I can’t wait to get over there. We walked around the city the rest of the evening before heading back to the hotel.
The next day was game day! We planned our trip around when the Rays were playin’ the Sox at Fenway. We had a 3 day pass for the Hop-on Hop-off trolley tour of the city and we rode the bus loop in the morning. We walked the Freedom Trail (MUST DO!) which I loved since I’m a total history geek. It was super neat seeing where a big portion of our country’s history began. We had dinner across the street from Fenway at Cask n’ Flagon (we even had a few homeruns during batting practice hit our way!) before heading into the park. Before the game, one of the Rays outfielders, Kevin Keirmier, threwJordan a ball. He was sooo stoked. It was such a cool experience sitting out by the green monster and watching the ball game. The Rays lost which was a bummer but it was a good game and all the Red Sox fans were super nice to us even though we were decked out in Rays gear (I didn’t expect that!)
The rest of the trip we spent walking the city, touring the USS Constitution, eating in the north end (We went to Dolce Vita, and I was OBSESSED with my meal…the whole restaurant is run by guys from Rome!), touring Cambridge on the bus and walking around Harvard. It was chilly for summer while we were there. It averaged around 65 degrees so I lived in my new Harvard pullover a majority of the time. Our last day we took the Charles River boat tour and I wasn’t super impressed with it, but it was neat to see the city from the water. We went in early that night and got pizza from Santarpio’s and I’m so glad we did. It’s totally a mom and pop place (Cash Only) but it was authentic Boston style pizza. We loved it.
I’m already itchin’ for another trip; we have a couple planned up until Thanksgiving, then this belly will be so big there won’t be anymore vacations. I’m off to Chicago for a birthday celebration this weekend with my mama!
