Boston, Massachusetts

Boston during ball season! Would have been great if it wasn’t their away game week, but I did see Fenway Park whilst enjoying the obligatory hop-on-hop-off bus tour. Boston also has beautiful architecture, I loved driving along the streets and seeing all the brownstones. I also brushed up on my local history with a walking tour of the Freedom Trail, followed by a nice stroll through Boston Common. Boston has been involved in many notable historic events, the American Revolution, The Boston Tea Party, Boston Massacre and more recently the Boston Marathon bombings. So we visited all of the sites connected with these events, including a re-enactment of the Tea Party.

We went to the USS Constitution Museum, unfortunately we couldn’t board the vessel due to restorations, however the USS Cassin Young was open so we had a look at that instead. We were lucky enough to meet a gentleman who was an Officer with the decommissioning crew, he told us his story and gave us an unofficial tour of the ship. That was special.

I had another unexplainable experience whilst visiting the grave sites of John Hancock, Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. We also stumbled across Paul Revere House.

Oh and the food… Faneuil Hall Marketplace is full of delicious food, Boston cream pie, lobster, went to Cheers for a beer, even found an Aussie coffee & pie shop, owned by Aussies.
