Hello there everyone, I hope you are doing great!
As promised, here I am sharing what I did in the city and area of Boston Massachussets. I really hope you’ll enjoy the post, let me know in the comments below if you have visited Boston!
Where we stayed
I spent about two weeks the area. We (as in me and my family) were staying in an AirBnB in Natick (red pin on map), you can check it out here, I highly recommend it! Natick is about 20-25 minutes away from Boston. Being outside of the city meant first of all that it was less expensive and also a lot more quiet, since we were in a residential neighborhood. The traffic was a lot better than near the city as well!
In the City
Freedom Trail & Charlestown
One of the most famous things to do when you are in Boston is the Freedom Trail. It’s a 2.5 mile walk through the city, where you can see different historic monuments and sites. Even if you are not really into history, it’s still really nice if you want to visit Boston by foot because the trail goes through most of the city. It’s really easy to find, all you need to do is follow the red bricks that you can see on the ground. It starts in the Boston Common (which I’ll talk about later!) and ends on the other side of the river in Charlestown. Charlestown was really nice too, there were a lot of narrow streets and red brick houses!
One thing I loved doing was walking next to the Charles river (from Cambridge or Boston). There are multiple view points and parks, such as the Esplanade and near the Science Museum. As you can tell from the pictures I took, it was a nice place to have a look at the sunset!
Beacon Hill was probably my favorite neighborhood of Boston. It was filled with red brick houses and tiny paved streets. Beacon Hill is mostly a residential area, perfect to take pictures in front of cute little doors. If I become rich one day, I’ll definitely be living there haha!
The two main parks in Downtown Boston are the Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden. They are actually right next to each other and worth visiting! There are a lot of trees to sit under, which is perfect when it’s hot outside because the trees keep the air cooler. There are tons of squirrels too haha!
Also one of my favorite things we did was visiting Harvard University. The campus is located in the center of Cambridge. We did a free guided tour of the campus, which was done by a student of Harvard. This was really interesting, the student told us all about the history of the University but also a lot of fun facts. I highly recommend doing this tour!
And last but not least we also visited Cape Cod. Cape Cod is a place where a lot of people have holiday houses where they spend the summer (kind of like the Hamptons in New York, but a little less expensive). There are a lot of beaches and little towns with lots of ice cream parlors and salt water taffy. Here it is on the map:
We visited most of the towns in Cape Cod since they are quite small and a few beaches. I really liked Provincetown and Marconi beach which was stunning!
And there you go! These were most of the places I visited when I was in the city and area of Boston, I really hope you enjoyed the post. Keep your eyes peeled for the New York post!
