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.
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.
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.
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!
