In the summer of 2016, my wife and I went on an adventure to Boston, Massachusetts, one of the United States of America’s oldest cities. Whether you’re wandering through revolutionary history or munching on a Boston Burger by the seaport, it’s a city that’s set to impress.
There’s no more quintessential a Boston experience than going to see the home of the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Generations upon generations of Bostonians have avidly supported the Red Sox, and Fenway Park was and remains one of the most famous fields in professional sports. Grab a famous Boston hot dog and get down there!
North End is Boston’s first neighbourhood, and also one of its most historic. Over the decades, it has evolved from a small village, to the home of American Revolutionists, to an Irish haven, to what is is today “Little Italy”. It’s one-square-mile waterfront community boasts some of Boston’s most delicious food!
Located near the waterfront in Boston, Faneuil Hall Marketplace is the perfect place to get a bite to eat, do a little shopping and, as one should always do when travelling, just enjoy the scenery.
Boston’s Museums of Fine Arts is one of the most comprehensive museums in the world, as well as well one of the largest in the entire United States. It contains many works of art and will provide eye candy for even the most selective museum goers. Definitely a worthy stop on any Boston itinerary.
“Off the beaten track” recommendations – Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Shit-Faced Shakespeare, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely inebriated cast member. This is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before! Remember to enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.
Truly the perfect place to spend a day just…wandering. Eat, play, shop, stay, watch – it’s the part of Boston that’s got it all. After a meal, head into one of the many bars and grab a Boston Ale by the sea.
Until next time! Mikey out!
