If you missed my first post about my trip to Boston, or its sequel, a day at Cape Cod, be sure to check those out before continuing reading below!
Our bus from Cape Cod dropped us back off in Boston around 5 pm, so we still had plenty of time to explore the city, even though it was already getting dark outside.
Sitting in the bus station with no clue where to go next, we started to get a bit ansty.
Suddenly, we remembered a recommendation someone had given us to go to The Beehive! We called up the restaurant and made a dinner reservation for 7 pm.
The Beehive had an awesome atmosphere! We were seated at a perfect table-for-two about ten feet away from the stage. The view was exceptional.
B&B for the night.
On Monday morning, we woke up once again to a delicious breakfast. Then we set out on another expedition.
Wait, are those flip-flops he's wearing in the snow? Sure enough! Long story short, he only brought one pair of boots with him to Boston and they were not broken in yet (rookie mistake).
His feet were sore and blistered from all the walking we did on Saturday and Sunday, so he decided he wanted to buy a pair of tennis shoes. There was an athletic shoe store literally a block away from our B&B, so he decided to endure the walk in his flip-flops.
Well, as luck would have it, the store was closed, as it was Martin Luther King's Day.
Needless to say, we went back to the room to get his boots! This guy might be a 6'5" man-giant, but his little toesies couldn't quite handle the freezing temps.
We stopped in Starbucks to warm up with a venti hot chocolate.
Moving on, we left the museum and continued walking.
Did I mention it was freezing cold outside?
Before we knew it, it was almost game time! The real reason we were in Boston was to see the Dallas Mavericks play the Boston Celtics.
We ate dinner at The Greatest Bar. I had a philly cheesesteak and Austin had nachos. We also had a couple of drinks and dessert.We went to lunch at Au Bon Pain. I ate half of a Roast Beef Caesar Sandwich.
We walked around Harvard and did a little shopping. I purchased a couple of souvenirs: a t-shirt and postcards.
Despite the fact that we had a fantastic time in Boston, my advice would be to avoid planning winter trips in the northern states.
During which season(s) do you prefer to travel?
I love travelling in the spring because it is warm enough to swim but not too hot to ruin the fun.
