I am so excited be able to get into the travel aspect of this blog with this new series about my adventures in Boston! I am late uploading this travel diary because I got really ill when I came back and didn’t have time to write. In this new little series, I will be taking you through most of the things I did on my trip. I didn’t get to take many outfit photos simply because I was there for only two full days.
With that being said, I am really excited to share this trip I took to Boston. This was my first time traveling to the east coast and as a Gossip Girl fan, I was very excited. If you saw through my social media, I went to the Boston for my sister’s graduation. Although I was only there for a few days, the vibe of the whole area was simply amazing. With such beautiful scenery and architecture, it is impossible to not want to take a picture of everything.
So here we go, my little diary of my time in Boston!
Boston Stop #1: Sweet Cheeks Q
So we came here after the ceremony and wow these biscuits were amazing. I am not a bread type person at all but they were some of the best I have ever tasted. In retrospect I probably shouldn’t have ordered a tray of food twice my weight. I will tell you that is was entirely worth it. They do serve smaller portions for those who don’t feel like attempting this tray. So for those of you who enjoy a good BBQ, this is definitely the place to be.
Boston Stop #2: Acorn Street
If there is one thing I love about visiting new places, is all of the amazing photo spots available. With the beautiful cobblestone path and the gorgeous architecture of the homes, this street seems to be every photographer’s dream. This because when we went it was flocked with people wanting that dream photo. It is very easy to see why, the entire neighborhood is absolutely beautiful. No matter where you turn you can see a home you just want to stare at for ages. If you visit Boston I would recommend coming here and getting your very own stereotypical photo.
Boston Stop #3: Boston Common
Of course there had to be some kind of mention of a park here. I will say that this was definitely one of my favorite parts of my trip. Everywhere you look there is something new to marvel at. Whether it was part of the park or the city line in the distance, it was such a great space to simply walk around and enjoy. When you are walking around you definitely can get quick glimpses of the history of the city with all of the great features spread out throughout. I also do want to add that it is filled with great photo opportunities. I think the best part for me was the fact that it was this beautiful park in the middle of the city. It’s perfect for anyone wanting some green space in the city.
Boston Stop #4: Mike’s Pastry
So I didn’t get a chance to take an actual picture of the cannolis because frankly they didn’t last that long. However I can vouch that they were pretty darn good. With various of options of flavors, there is definitely something to suit anyone’s taste. They were sugary and sweet without being to overpowering. And if you don’t believe me then you will definitely believe the many people constantly in line. When we arrived the line was a few storefronts down which seems to be the usual. Despite it being cash-only, this is a must visit place.
Boston Stop #5: James Hook and Company
Obviously on part of my trip to Boston I had to try a lobster roll. It is almost mandatory to do so. So to try one we went to James Hook and Company. It is a rather smallish place with not a lot of place to sit inside but more seating on the outside. Although I got the fortune to go when it was raining so outside was not much of an option. Even though its small you constantly see people walking in and out. But the food is definitely worth it. I tried the cold lobster roll and even though I didn’t get the chance to try the hot ones, I can bet they are equally as good. Now I haven’t had many lobster rolls to compare to but it was definitely amazing.
Boston Stop #6: Fenway Park
Being completely honest here, I don’t know a single thing about baseball. I don’t even think I’ve seen a baseball game in its entirety. However we did decide to tour the Fenway since it is a big part of the city’s culture. If you have the time I would definitely recommend checking out the tours. Even if you are like me and don’t know a thing about the sport, it was nice to get to hear about the history of an iconic place. What made it even more amazing was being able to fully tour the stadium and get to know little trivia facts. Getting to hear little facts of history about the place definitely lets you learn more about the sport and the city. Even though I have been told I am supposed to root for the LA Dodgers, this was definitely a pretty amazing experience.
Boston Stop #7: Max Brenner
What a shocker, another food place I went to. I do believe a solid 70 percent of what I did in Boston was just to eat. However this was more of a quick snack and cup of hot chocolate to hold us over before dinner. Even though it was just a quick stop I wanted to add this place in here because it was so charming and the presentation was amazing.
The hot chocolate came in a ‘hug mug’ which was a little tricky to figure out at first. We also ordered the fondue plate which was a little scary at first since it comes with a small flame for your marshmallows. I say scary because it kept getting a little close to our faces. Overall this was just a cute little spot to rest before continuing onto our day.
Unfortunately that is all of the sites I have to show you for this trip. Since we were just there for a small amount of days we didn’t get to fully explore the city. I also didn’t add in the dinner I had on the second day just because I was too hungry to take any.
I hope you guys enjoyed this small travel experience! Let me know if you have visited any of these places or are planning to visit Boston soon! Also go ahead and let me know of where you plan to travel to soon, I would love some suggestions for my next trip!
