Our vacation to Boston was really the most wonderful vacation I have ever had (besides my honeymoon!). It was so refreshing to get away from our regular lives and jobs and to be back in the big city again! We flew in Friday night (and almost didn’t get there, since our flight to Atlanta was an hour late, almost causing us to miss our connection! The Atlanta airport is the worst!!), and had dinner with Amanda at Margaritas (no, we didn’t have margaritas, just yummy Mexican food). Saturday we walked all around Boston with Brad and Amanda.
Bryan had never gotten to visit the North End while we were living in Boston, so we made sure to go there first. The North End is the place to go if you want some great Italian–we didn’t get a canoli from Mike’s Pastry this time, but we did get some great gelato!
While we were there, we stopped by Paul Revere’s house, then headed down to Fenuil Hall, Bryan and my most favorite part of the city. Fenuil is always particularly exciting on Saturdays, flooded with people and street performers.
I can’t believe we never realized this while we were living in Boston, but the ocean is just Right behind Fenuil hall, a short walk past the carousel! Bryan and I fell in love with that little harbor park and went back to sit by the ocean on Tuesday of our trip.
For lunch we stopped by the Union Oyster House, the oldest restaurant in Boston! The place was crazy packed, but the food was great! Bryan tried Clam Chowder for the first time (and loved it, and we sat just a few booths over from John F. Kennedy’s regular booth!
It was a busy but great way to kick off our vacation in Boston…which I’ll write more about later!
