City Break: Boston

Friday, January 22, 2016

We have a trip to Boston coming up quick! Its going to be here before we know it and I haven't really done too much planning for it (SHOCKER! that's not sarcasm). We planned this trip because we had 2 free nights with Hyatt via their credit card and tickets to Boston were SUPER cheap! I had put an alert on a few locations and Boston was the only one that had flights within our budget. And lucky for us, we scored some Hyatt gift cards to cover the rest of our weekend!

This will be our first over night without Alana (well, besides the 2 nights we were home and she was in the NICU). I have to admit, I am getting a little nervous and anxious about it. We're going to be gone for 3 nights and we do want this to be a relaxing trip where we can sleep in and enjoy being together and that is why I haven't planned much. Here is what I got:

Day 1: We arrive on a Friday mid-afternoon and after checking into the hotel I figured we could walk around Boston Common and maybe start the Freedom Trail and then get some dinner and drinks and call it a night.

Day 2: We have a food tour planned. We haven't done a food tour before and I hear this is a pretty good one (you'll have to wait for the actual post to see which one we did). Plus its a good way to try a little something from all the good restaurants. Since there is no WAY we could go to all of them for meals in such short amount of time. Some of the food tour is on the Freedom Trail so we'll cover more of that then and then we'll wrap up the rest of the trail on our own.

Day 3: I would like to cross the Charles River and check out MIT and Harvard's campuses. Maybe I will soak in some more intellect! :P This might take a good portion of the day since we'll be using public transportation. I would also like to try and head to Fenway Park. And then in the evening we'll be watching Super Bowl 50 - anybody know of a good place to watch it?

Day 4: We head out; our flight is at 11am but I want to make sure we have plenty of time to get there since we're relying on public transportation and good weather conditions.

p.s. This will be my first post about our travels on this blog! You can check out our other travels from the past on travel mi amor.

  1. I have never been to Boston (or really anywhere besides a few states, for that matter!) It sounds cold but I'm sure you'll find some great places! That food tour sounds fabulous! Definitely sleep in and lounge around....no schedules!
