Another long weekend, another new city, this time to celebrate fourth of July. Boston turned it on with a huge dose of American history, amazing food and impressive fireworks display. A must do is walking the Freedom Trail, a 4km long journey that takes you through the city while highlighting key locations in American history. We did a guided tour which was well worth it for us novices on the topic! A visit to Harvard also raised our intellect just by being in the presence of greatness…a truly inspiring and beautiful place well worth checking out.
Catching a ball game at Fenway Park was a highlight, at over 100 years old it’s the oldest ballpark in the major league. And be sure to visit the North End for some authentic Italian food and famous cannoli from Mike’s Pastry, yum! Faneuil Hall Marketplace is a vibrant area that has served the city as a meeting hall and marketplace since 1743, and today offers an abundance of food options and street performers. If your feet can manage more walking I highly recommend a stroll through the beautiful Boston Public Garden, adjacent to Boston Common the oldest park in America, to Beacon Hill where you can admire some of the most expensive real estate in the city.
