Once I wrapped up my visit to England, the next leg of my travels took me to Boston, Massachusetts. I had very little experience there: I attended a conference in 1999 (and got to do zero exploration), and I zipped right out of the city in 2011 to spend several days in nearby Worcester.
One of my friends is studying at Boston University, and when she invited me to spend a few days in the city, I added it to my travel itinerary.
Perhaps one of the quickest ways to start exploring the city is via the Freedom Trail. It’s easy to walk, and it takes you to some of the most important places in the city. We started at the site of the Boston Massacre.
Revere is buried in Granary Burying Ground along with other notable figures from Boston’s history.
We wandered around Boston Harbor, too.
Boston Common is lively and peaceful at the same time, and it’s definitely beautiful. We enjoyed resting on a bench and watching passersby.
This photo at the harbor was an accident, but it looks a little artsy.
