Boston in July

We recently spent six days in Boston. It was such a great trip! Boston is an amazing city to be in for the 4th of July. So patriotic. It was also to bid a final farewell to Boston with my parents before they moved back to San Diego for good.


Day 1

We started the first day with a long walk from The Old State House, to Boston Common, to Commonweath Ave.

Near the Old State House we spotted this fun group of colonial soldiers.


I loved seeing the swan boats


Commonwealth Ave is so pretty and lined with such amazing houses and trees. I had some fun with the statues in the park.

After our walk we hopped a cab to the Museaum of Fine Arts. There was a cook Katz exhibit going on.

My favorite areas are the Americas and the Impressionists. I loved these Monets.

For dinner we at Legal Seafood Harborside

We all got whole lobsters for dinner. Yum! 
 
  
Then we did ANOTHER long walk from Fan Wharf all the way to the North End to Modern Pastry.

While walking we spotted all these kids having a blast playing the fountains above the big dig. I love hot Summer nights.

 Finally we got to modern pastry for amazing cannolis. It was worth the miles of walking.
 


Day 2 

On the second day we rented a car and drove up to Crane Beach and enjoyed a day of fun and sun.

We then had dinner at The Helmand (Afgan food). Then we walked along the Charles River.

It was such a gorgeous night.



Day 3

On the third day we spent most of the day shopping. Not too many pictures except this one of the Mr. surrounded by bags and shoes, exhausted.

The we got in line for the July 3rd Boston Pops concert. It's the dress rehearsal for the July 4th Boston Pops that's televised nationally.

It was a lot of  fun to see the Boston Pops. Jennifer Hudson was the headliner, so it was cool to see her.

 Stay tuned for Part 2 - Boat Cruise, Fireworks, and Sam Adams!

You look great and really thin!
I would love that Boston Pops on the 3rd.. so up my alley.
We did DC for the 4th one year and it's by far the most memorable!

You made some great choices! I was just at Modern Pastry last weekend after dinner in the North End. I live 20 minutes north of Boston we go into the city at least once a month.

It looked and sounded like a great trip! That pic of your hubby with all the bags cracked me up! Whenever we go for a lengthier shopping trip, my Hubby usually says he's "done" in about 30 minutes but is always such a sweet trooper! ;-)

Lady! I'm leaving for Boston tomorrow and I was hoping to get that second installment of your Boston trip.

Where have you been? I hope your job is going well and you guys are doing great.
