Boston

Today I had a chance to take a long lunch break. As I’ve mentioned before, I absolutely love Boston. It seems there’s a historical place around every corner. I also feel as if I can see the entire world go by if I stand still and just people watch for a while. Walking around Downtown Boston is great and I should do it more often.

Today for an hour and a half I became a tourist. Here’s my photo report 🙂

The Rose Kennedy Greenway – 1.5 mile string of parks with a carousel, grassy areas & rotating contemporary art exhibitions.
Quincy Market & Faneuil Hall Marketplace
The Old State House – On July 18, 1776, citizens gathered in the street to hear the Declaration of Independence read from the building’s balcony, the first public reading in Massachusetts.
The Freedom Trail – 2.5-mile-long path through downtown Boston that passes by 16 locations significant to the history of the United States
The Boston Massacre – Major event in the American Revolutionary War. British Army soldiers killed five male civilians and injured six others on March 5, 1770.
The Massachusetts State House – the state capitol and seat of government for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Federal Reserve Bank of Boston
I probably spend over 60% of my time here
Custom House Tower – Boston’s first skyscraper; completed in 1847

  1. Nice pics – I have been to Boston twice so these are a fond reminder. Hopefully I will get to visit in summer one day. I first visited in 1988, I was pregnant so felt a little nauseous – not so good when walking through the food market! The second time was a freezing cold April in 2007, a bit too cold to walk around and enjoy the sights. So third time lucky I hope:-)

    1. Third time’s the charm! I would confidently say that since your last visit Downtown Boston over 50% different. Would love to hear your opinion when you visit!

    1. Hi! I’ve been absent for a few days 🙂
      My foot is getting better. I’ve been stretching the hell out of it and icing it. I would say it’s probably at 80% or so. It’s to the point that yesterday I had a nice run along the beach without much pain.
