I was looking through photos the other day and realized that I did not show any pictures from our trip to Boston. When we traveled to Iceland, we flew out of Boston and spent one day touring the city. One day is definitely not enough to tour the city. However, we were able to see a lot in a little amount of time.
When we decided to spend a day in Boston, we knew that we needed to hit the Freedom Trail. The Freedom Trail is great for tourists and is a way for you to experience the history of Boston and the US. We were amazed by how close so many of the historic sites are to each other.
We also spent a lot of time at Fanueil Hall and the Fanueil Hall Marketplace. There is a ton going on there. Shopping, street performers, and history are all mixed into one. Fanueil Hall also has plenty of tourist information about the Freedom Trail and Boston, so it is a must stop.
A street performer through the lens of a budding photographer:
This is the Old State House. I love how old meshes with new in Boston.
Mike's Pastry, D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! And, there are no calories when on vacay, right? Mike's is not too far of a walk from the Paul Revere House, so you can make a top while touring the area! You will need cash to purchase your goodies, so don't forget to bring some!
These are some of the highlights of our trip to Boston. We enjoyed the city and loved the liveliness of the Fanueil Hall area. One thing to remember if you go--have cash with you. We needed it for parking (yes, even in a deck) and when buying our goodies at Mike's Pastry. Also, research the Freedom Trail. It will give you a lot of ideas about what to do and see.
