Around three years ago, I went here when I visited a college with my cousins, Kristina and Nicole.
It has left a memorable mark on me because I still crave to go back.
The beauty of the city is a complete understatement.
It is filled with so many stunning views and the cleanliness of the city was very surprising.
I went during the summer so I haven’t experienced Boston its entirety, but let me tell you it was amazing.
The video above was one that I made from my time there. Don’t mind the awful videography, I was still learning.
We took a ferry from Long Island, NY in the early hours of the morning. It was a beautiful, purple shadowed sunrise and I loved every bit of it. From there, we drove to Boston.
If you don’t know the song, “Boston” by Augustana, I highly suggest you listen to it because that was all that played through my head my whole time there.
My cousin, Nicole, had some connections so we were able to get a very nice hotel room with the perfect view of the city.
We spent our days walking up and down the streets, visiting Thrift shops, small stores, food markets, and basically anything that interested us.
We went to the Skywalk Observatory where we could see all of Boston. It was in the Prudential Tower and you were able to go up to the 50th floor that gave you a 360 view of the city. The floor was littered with different facts about Boston and the people that made it even more remarkable.
We had ice cream at this cute little shop. They were known for making the ice cream in the shape of a rose so of course, we had to get that.
The weather was just right especially at night, you could wear anything you wanted and still feel comfortable.
We only spent two days and a night there, but we made sure to end with a bang by going to the Breakfast Club on our last day.
It’s a quaint, little diner, notorious for being based on the movie, The Breakfast Club. The walls were covered with memorabilia from the 80’s. They had “library specials” which were different food specials based on the names from the movie such as “The Princess” (Of course, I had it), “The Dork”, “The Criminal”, “The Jock”, etc. And let me tell you, it was banging.
On our way home from Boston, we made a stop at Wahlburgers after hearing rave views about it and for our family loving the Wahlberg brothers. It’s another place I definitely suggest.
I had so much fun there and made so many memories.
Boston, you have my heart and I am definitely going to come back.
