I went to Boston for the first time a few weeks ago to visit friends, and boy have I been missing out! Boston is so cute. Not only did I have a great time catching up with the girls I also had a blast exploring the city. We crammed a lot in in a relatively short amount of time. My friend Alison picked me up in Hoboken and we got to Boston late on Friday. We had a late dinner atThe Elephant Walk. Dinner was excellent and I was excited because there were several vegetarian options on the menu. From there we headed to Eastern Standard for a quick drink, and then went to another dive-ish kind of bar to meet up with another friend.
We accomplished a lot on Saturday. We woke up semi-early to check out Harvard’s gorgeous campus. Then we had a fabulous brunch at Beehive with live music, great cocktails, and delicious food. After stuffing ourselves we took a walk through the Boston Public Garden. We were lucky it was such a gorgeous day. There are some cool trees there and we got to see (and dress up) a Boston landmark. After meandering about for a bit, we stopped in the Cheers bar and then continued on to browse through some cute little shops filled with holiday stuff and other trinkets. We also got cupcakes from Sweets (it was seriously the best cupcake I think I ever had–it was a sea salt brownie cupcake), went to the Boston tree lighting, went to the oldest restaurant in America, Union Oyster House, and ended the night with a hearty Italian dinner at Cantina Italiana.
It was a short but sweet trip to Boston. I had a blast, and now I know that I’m a fan of Boston. I’m looking forward to going back to explore some more!
