Hello to all my Boston trip advisors,
I never write trip reports as english and writing were never my favorite subject in school :) but thought I would write because my trip was so enjoyable.
We arrived Boston Logan at approx 10am on Friday, grabbed a Charlie ticket prior to leaving baggage claim and off we went to ride the T. I have to say that the T is the easiest subway I have ever ridden, everything is laid out so well, no problem finding the correct trains. Made our way to the Prudential station and walked the block or two to our hotel, Hilton Back Bay.
Check in went smoothly, room on 20th floor with a corner view, large windows that bent around the corner offered a view of the water and the Prudential Center. Room was plenty big for the H and I.
After checking in we headed over to Fenway to take in their tour, what a fun and informative tour, definately reccommend. Then walked over to Harvard Square and to lunch at Bartley Burger Cottage for some yummy burgers. Did some more walking around Harvard, then took the T so we could catch the Sam Adams brewery tour before they closed for the day. Had a cute tour and delicious beer. Back to hotel to change for the evening.
Took T to North End, wanted to go to Giacomo's but line was so long and it was already close to 9pm so we settled on Bricco's instead. This was just ok for me, should have held out for Giacomo's, maybe next time.
Saturday arrived and we decided to do the Freedom Trail, started of course at the Boston Common and just meandered from there, what a great way to see the city. Stopped at Quincy Market to sample the food, but actually had lunch at Neptune Oyster (hot lobster roll, my first ever lobster roll and not disappointed, it was delicious). Continued our walk, and headed back via Beacon Hill neighborhood (beautiful). Had dinner that night at Tapeo on Newbury, excellent tapas.
Sunday was spent walking down to the South End and visiting Mike's City Diner for breakfast, this was a fun and great place for breakfast. More walking (we walked for miles and miles during our 3 days there), ended up at Barking Crab for some chowder, was ok.
Made our way back to Quincy Market to sit at Ned Divine's Irish Pub to sit and watch football for a few hours. Made our way back to hotel to change and head out for H's birthday dinner. Chose Atlantic Fish Co, we had the lump crab cake, tuna, and filet mignon and lobster tail, along with triple chocolate cake for dessert (our best meal while in Boston).
Had to make our way back to hotel fairly early as we had an early departure from Logan the next morning.
I have to say, this was one of my favorite trips ever. The city itself is amazing with all the different neighborhoods and sights. And the food, oh my, can you tell I like to eat? Anyways, even though this was my first trip to Bean Town, it definately won't be my last. Thanks again to all the Boston trip experts and their guidance on here.
If you made it thru my lengthy trip report then congrats, I never was good at summarizing.
