Around the World in 26 Letters--Boston

 

I've been to Boston once. My husband and I traveled the US in a van between our sophomore and junior years in college. We pulled in to Boston, parked the Astro, and started walking down the sidewalk. The street was fairly crowded so we sort of followed the people along and ended up at Fenway Park in time for a BoSox game. We were able to get obstructed view seating that was hardly obstructed and watched players swing for the Green Monster. We didn't stay long, so we missed out on most of what Boston has to offer. I hope to go back and see the rest of that beautiful city.





Any tips?

  2. No tips cause I've never been there (I can't include stopovers at the airport). But it's one of those places I'd love to go. Maybe as the kids get older and can sit still through the history learning portions of the trip.

  4. (It's the Green Monster...)

    Oh, I love Boston. It's about a three hour drive from where I am. I'm so glad you got to go to Fenway. It's such a great ballpark to visit.

    If you get to go back again, you should visit Mike's Pastry (in the North End) and Quincy Market. Make sure to bring your appetite...

    1. Oh Thanks MJ! I should have had my husband proof read it for me :) I knew it was big and green ;) Thanks for the tips too! I'm starting a travel journal to go with this A to Z challenge since people have so many great ideas :)

  9. I was in Boston once for Christmas. 20 years ago (I was seven but saying it was 20 years ago makes me feel old). I don't remember much except that my grandmother chain-smoked in the house while we opened presents, and Santa thought my sister and my cousin were twins.

  10. My brother was married a little outside of Boston. The day after their wedding we went and toured all the older places and I loved it. I want to go back someday. Maybe have my SIL meet us their and take us on a real tour.

    1. It'd be awesome to have someone who lives nearby to give you a tour, they'd know the great places to see :)

  12. I love Boston, and have not been in many years (since before having kids). There is a Sam Adams brewery/bar that is awesome if you can get there. My sister and I had a great night, lots of fun and many good beers many years ago before either of us was married or had kids. It's a beautiful place.

  13. I've been to Boston countless times since I was a kid, and was just about the only person on the annual 5th grade Boston field trip (back in the spring of '91) who'd been there before and wasn't going to these museums and other places for the very first time. Sadly, the Computer Museum is no more, or at least doesn't exist in the old familiar form I knew it as for years. I thought the Paul Revere House was pretty boring the one time I went. I love Boston so much that some of my characters live there!

    One of my hobbies is graving (I do a lot of volunteer work for the website Find A Grave), so I love Boston's old Colonial cemeteries in the North End. Boston has some of America's oldest non-Native American cemeteries, including Granary, King's Cemetery, and Copp's Hill Burial Ground. A number of famous people are buried there. And that's just scratching the surface of some of my favorite things in Boston!

  15. Boston is high on my list of places to visit! Even if you didn't stay long you're lucky you were able to hit a BoSox game. No fair!!!

  18. I love your theme! Boston would be a wonderful place to visit. I think I went when I was a young girl, with my nose in a comic book, and too bored to appreciate it.

    Welcome to the Challenge, Hope!
