As a graduation gift from my parents, my family traveled to Boston, Massachusetts. There are so many places in the United States that I have yet to see, and Boston seemed to be at the heart of America’s foundation. I will be sharing the wonderful experiences of our trip throughout this week, and I hope you enjoy!
We arrived on May 5th and after checking in to our hotel, headed to our room to discover a beautiful view from the balcony that you can see in the above picture. It was time for lunch when we arrived, so we walked over to Cheers because what better way to start the trip than with a popular tourist destination! I also thought it would be appropriate to start off the trip with a Samuel Adams since we were in Boston after all. On our way over there we stopped at the Massachusetts State House, which is the State House that is currently used.
From there we hopped on the red line and went to Cambridge to visit Harvard University. We had a great view on our ride there, and Harvard’s campus was beautiful as well. We explored the campus and campus town of the prestigious and historical university.
While we were there, the 30th annual MayFair was taking place so there was food, live music, and tons of people all lining the streets. The street performers I saw in New Orleans were even performing there!
We had dinner that night at Tia’s and then began our Ghost and Gravestones tour, taking us to historical graveyards and some of Boston’s other haunted sites. One of the graveyards we visited was Copp’s Hill Burying Ground, which was founded in 1659, making it the second oldest cemetery in Boston.
Although Boston’s short curvy streets were still a bit confusing for us after the first day, the next day we would learn a lot about the history of the city and get a better feel for our surroundings.
