I love this city. Plain and simple.
Another perk of traveling to Vermont for Paul and Cody’s Wedding, was getting to fly into Logan Airport in Boston for a quick overnight stay in the beautiful city on the water. And it was seemingly meant to be, that D and I were on the last remaining “Continental” logo plane from IAH. ahh the good ole’ days.
In case you are unfamiliar with my blog and travels, I am downright addicted to the ocean. So being in any city where I can sightsee, eat, drink and relax by the water instantly takes that locale to the top of my list. This was certainly the case in Boston.
D and I met our good friend, Assface (although his face resembles nothing close to an ass), in Boston for the night. Being a frequent work traveler, Assface was able to score us a concierge level room at the Marriott Boston Long Wharf for mere points alone.
And of course, no trip can be complete without boys, as my middle school bus driver would say, “actin’ a fool.”
But in all seriousness, if you’re in Boston, don’t miss these things:
1.) Fenway Park Tour and/or game.
The tour is approximately an hour long and takes you from the entry halls, to the Green Monster all the way around the stadium. It’s truly picturesque and a fantastic way to see the entire stadium.
Also, make it to Bleacher Bar in the outfield of Fenway. Great view of the field, delicious pubfare and cold libations… what more could you want?
2.) The North End.
A little Italy right in the midst of downtown Boston. I’ve heard rave reviews about Mike’s Pastry and Limoncello, but Assface, D and I stumbled upon Ristorante Villa Francesca and adored everything about it. Do NOT skip the bruschetta or one of my favorite dishes in the entire world, their Fettucine Ai Carciofi.
Until next time, Happy Travels!
