Our Trip to Boston


At the beginning of the summer Adam and I were able to get away together for a few days to one of our favorite places, Boston!

We had been once before a few years ago and have been anxious to go back ever since. The history and beauty of the city absolutely captured our hearts. It's definitely a place I envision us traveling to as often as possible. I can't wait to introduce our boys, I know they will love it too!


There are SO many things to see and do in Boston so I wanted to share some of our trip and some of the things we did!

Where we stayed:
Adam planned this trip for me completely as a surprise. He gave me a card on my birthday and let me know he had booked everything and that we would be heading out Memorial Day weekend. I was a little nervous when he told me he had booked an Airbnb! I honestly was still worried about it even as we were traveling there. I'm more of a "let's stay in a nice hotel with room service and privacy" kind of traveler. Adam is more of a "let's stay in the best location possible at the best price possible" kind of traveler ; ) However, much to my surprise, I actually really enjoyed where we stayed. We rented a room in a three story townhouse in Back Bay and were within walking distance to everything! I wouldn't stay there with kids but for the two of us it was perfect!


What we did:
Adam's main reason for choosing MDW to travel was the fact that the Braves were playing the Redsox that weekend...I mean how much more American can you get than your hometown Braves playing the legendary Redsox at FENWAY on Memorial Day weekend... Dream come true for my sports obsessed husband! Going into the weekend we had planned to go to one game but actually ended up going to all three because we had so much fun.


Aside from tons of baseball we also did TONS of walking. Some of my favorite things we did on this trip included walking around the Boston Public Garden, taking in the sights of Beacon Hill, shopping in Quincy Market, the Prudential Center, and of course Newbury street, and eating lots and lots of amazing food. We walked almost 40 miles on this trip but it was so much fun seeing the city, almost completely, by foot.

Other really fun attractions include the Duck Tours, Boston Public Library, Freedom Trail, visiting Harvard, and touring Fenway Park.

We had the best time getting away with each other for a few days to kickoff summer. We already can't wait to get back!
