By far one of my favorite sayings “Boston Strong”. The city itself is on its way to becoming one of my favorite American cities. Boston has all the attributes of a travel city. It’s walkable, great food and the people are extremely friendly. It makes sense why the city is called the “city of kind hearts”.
From Boston Logan International, take the free shuttle bus to the Blue line train, the stop is called Airport. From there, it’s the blue line train to State street. (Single ride $2.75, day pass $12.00). The bus also takes you to the rental car area of the airport if you prefer self-guided tours.
The city has a good selection when it comes to hotels, however, my favorite is the Ames Boston hotel. For one, it’s centrally located, the price is reasonable and I’m able to build my Hilton honors points as it is the go-to hotel program of choice.
Bean-town doesn't fall of short of things to do. Quincy Market is a great beginning point for any trip to Boston. Starting off with a lobster roll from Boston Chowda Co or even cheese pizza from Pizza bagel. The market is a food-lovers paradise. The market also has merchandise stands and is located between the north and south markets where shoppers is a recommended. Once the inner foodie is fed, it’s time to feed your wanderlust. A great way to begin is Boston Common. Founded in 1634, it’s America’s oldest public park. It’s also the starting point for the city’s freedom trail. The trail details Boston’s rich history moving from the Massachusetts Statehouse to Bunker Hill.
After an afternoon of exercise, the Boston Harbor is a great place to relax. You can take in the sights or go whale watching courtesy of the New England Aquarium. After building up an appetite whale watching, Legal Seafoods is your place. Then it’s off to downtown crossing to learn of the Irish history that is in the roots of Boston’s history.
Boston has a great way of taking you in, the city is rich in history and once you visit places such as the Old State building, you’d be taken back by the rich history that took place in the city and how much it has to offer.
