Siempre Viaja Con Los Ojos Abrieto

Looking back at Boston today, I wonder why I hadn't made it back as often as I did during my childhood. I spent many of my summers in Cape Cod with the occasional day trip into Boston and they were very pleasant memories.

Walking around this wonderful city helped me remember and appreciate certain things in my life. You don’t have to travel to a new city to see something new, you just have to see old ones with new eyes…

Back in 2003, I saw a familiar Boston as I hadn’t seen any city in a very long time. Maybe it was the fall foliage, the crisp blue sky, the kaleidoscope of colors, or something as simple as the company of new found friends.

I've been back to Boston many many times since 2003 making it one of the many New England cities I visit yearly

My Boston

In 2003 I was invited to visit Boston for a VT Meeting. It would be my first return to Boston after more than 20 year abscence from the wonderful city. I had visited Boston many times as a child and remembered it being such a interesting place to be. I learned so much about history and would say it is why I enjoy American History so much.

We have our favorites places and things to do during our visits to Boston, but we also enjoy exploring new places and Boston is a great city to do that in.

Here's a brief list of some of our favorite places:

Walking along Boston Common and Gardens
Enjoying the madness of Fanieul Hall & Quincy Market
Strolling along the waterfront
Finding new places to stop in to enjoy a drink
Finding my way to Newbury for some shopping
Having Ice Cream at PJ Licks
Visiting some of the best museums in the country
Walking with no set agenda around the city with someone I love!

    Janet, great Boston tips, I loved Boston, so did my wife. Newbury Street was a piece of heaven. Bought art in the galleries. Had great fun at many pubs and got a kick out of Dick's Last Resort.
