The Bostonian Way

Two weeks ago, Patrick and I had a really fabulous trip to Boston. We are blessed with dear friends that live in Cambridge, so we knew we wanted to make a trip there together before their stint in the city  was over. The weather was beautiful, and we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience (or more enjoyable friends to hit the city with!). They were gracious and kind, and devoted so much time to teaching us the ways of life in the Northeast. I couldn't have been more thankful for our time together - exploring and reconnecting. 

Here are some of our favorite memories from the weekend:

Beacon Hill and Cambridge

The beautiful faces we woke up to each morning

Cambridge and the Charles River

Beacon Hill Chocolates came highly recommended to us, and it was well worth the $3 bite-size chocolates. Trust me, it is worth the splurge.

The Holocaust Memorial

Samuel Adams Brewery

I couldn't post about Boston without giving you a list of some 'must-do' things around town. Our time there was short, so I know this list isn't exhaustive, but it is definitely worth your time if you venture up to the Northeast:

Caffe Vittoria - Coffee and gelato
Mike's Pastry Shop - Incredible cannoli in the North End
Holocaust Memorial - Incredibly sobering, but absolutely worth the visit
Clam chowder at Union Oyster House (America's oldest restuarant) - If you're lucky you can snag JFK's private booth!
Atomic Bean in Cambridge - We had breakfast sandwiches with mango and pineapple that were divine
Sibling Rivalry - Dueling chefs use the same ingredients, but have created separate menus
Sam Adams Brewery - best brewery tour I've ever been on. Funny, informative, and awesome samples
Harvard Square/Charles River

Happy traveling!
