A friend is visiting Boston for the first time, so we have been going around for the past couple of days. I’ve done lots of walking and to be honest some sights around here never bore me. So here’s our itinerary for future use:
Friday we only had half a day, so we went in Harvard Square, walk around the yard, then down the Charles, walked along the river, back to Davis, dinner at Redbones.
Saturday we went downtown Boston to Park St. Went to the Granary Burying Ground, then towards the other direction, through Boston Common, the Public Garden, walked along the Commonwealth Ave Mall, Newbury Street, Copley Square, Copley Place, Skywalk Observatory at the Prudential (50th floor), dinner at Summer Shack.
Sunday we did Duck Tour (my first time, was kinda fun and I can see visitors enjoying it), Esplanade, Beacon Hill, dinner at the Top of the Hub (oh, yes, pricey but awesome view and delicious).
Monday was a holiday, Memorial Day, and the day was gorgeous. Brunch at Soundbites, too the T downtown, walked around the North End, Greenway, Harborwalk, ICA, took the T to JP, walked around the Pond.
Lots of blisters, lots of ice cream, lots of water and lemonade.
Gave my friend directions to Faneuil Hall to visit on his own, I can’t really stand this area. He’ll be doing the Harvard Museum of Natural History on his own too. Later in the week we’ll be visiting the Mt Auburn Cemetery, the Arboretum, maybe Forest Hills Cemetery, too.
And, oh, yes, Boston is awesome, and YES, we have lots of Dunkin Donuts and interesting combinations, like Donuts / Sushi:
