Boston, Massachusetts

Hello, World!

I’m so excited to share my fall break trip to Boston, Massachusetts with you. For the last two years, my best friend, Holly and I have talked about me visiting her in Boston. Due to our differing schedules, it hadn’t worked yet. This being [potentially] my last year on the east coast, however, I decided to take the plunge and visit during fall break. We were very excited about my visit and Holly had a ton planned for us to do and see. Because I have so many photos, I wanted to break it down by days and explain each day. 

Friday

I landed in Boston on Friday afternoon. Once we dropped off my bags at Holly’s apartment, we headed into Cambridge to look around and get dinner at Mr. Bartley’s (the U.S.’s best burger place, according to the Wall St. Journal). The burgers were gigantic but so amazing. I also enjoyed seeing Harvard’s campus and the bookstore.

Saturday

Saturday morning Holly and I went to an 8:30 am Soul Cycle class! It was so fun to go with a friend and it felt so good to be back in a Soul studio. The energy in those rooms is so superior to any other spin experience I’ve had. Holly enjoyed the class, which made me happy. After Soul, we grabbed Starbucks, where I picked up a Boston (been there series) mug. We chilled at her apartment for a bit, showered, and got ready. We then took the T to Copley Square to see the Boston Public Library, a book fair that was going on, and then we walked down Newbury Street, Boston Common, and Beacon Hill! It was a lot of walking but well worth it. New England in the fall is unparalleled and lived up to my expectations (and then some).

Something I love about Boston is the old and new. It’s mixed so much but the City is so beautiful. I also loved the green areas. So pretty! Finally, Acorn Street is SO cute. Very wobbly with the cobblestone, but also the epitome of a Boston street it seems. In the evening, we went to Fenway Park while the Red Sox played. We didn’t go to the game, but we got salads at Sweetgreen and then went to Lucky Strike for drinks and met up with some of Holly’s friends! It was so fun that I forgot to take photos (I did a post on Instagram Stories though!).

Sunday

On Sunday, we did the Freedom Trail. It was so much fun. We went all around the sites, then went to the Tea Party ships to do a tea tasting of the five teas thrown in the harbor during the Boston Tea Party.

Monday

On Monday, we went to Boston College so Holly could show me where she did her master’s program. We stopped by the library she worked in and said hello to her old co-workers. The campus is gorgeous! We then went to Cambridge again because I had some work to do. We grabbed dinner there, then hung at her apartment. Both of us were a bit tired from the walking on Saturday and Sunday. On Tuesday, we grabbed brunch and then I headed to the airport.

Overall, I had an amazing trip and I was so thankful to have full days with Holly. Since graduating college, we haven’t been able to meet up for more than a few hours. we FaceTime and text, but it’s not the same as being in the same city. She’s a great tour guide and I was so happy to see Boston as it’s such a cool city! So, this was my last fall break and I think it was definitely the best one yet.

Truly,
