Fall is starting and it’s fun to see the leaves start to change. This is my favorite time of year and we are in a great part of the country to see it all. I actually look forward to the driving days. It’s stressful but once you are on the road, the views are amazing. We listen to audio books and talk. It’s nice 🙂
Our Thousand Trails membership allows us to stay up to 2 weeks at certain RV parks which is awesome, but… these parks are usually an hour or more from the major cities. We were about an hour and a half away from Boston but headed out to make a day trip out of it.
Our first stop was lunch with an SEO friend. It was fun to meet locals and get some ideas of fun stuff to do in town.
Harvard college was just a few miles a ways so we went and walked around on campus. It was a really fun vibe! How cool would it be to go to college here!
We messaged a couple from the ward that went to Harvard and they told us to go to Burdick’s for drinking chocolate, which is a lot different than hot chocolate. It didn’t disappoint!
We then made our way downtown to the USS Constitution. This is an old renovated ship from the late 1700s actually named by George Washington himself. Crazy how big it is. People would spend months on board and sleep in really uncomfortable hammocks.
Since we didn’t get enough sweets at Burdick’s, we went to Mikes Pastries which both Ben and I have been to before but it’s SO GOOD!
This place is amazing and a must see when in Boston. It has some of the best pastries you will have in your life (no joke) The lines are usually out the door, and I can’t help but love the string they tie the boxes in.
We knew we wanted a Canoli, brownie, lobster tail, and something else. The lady helping us
Quick tip, if you are in line and know what you want to get, just head to the left side of the store close to the counter. They will ring you up there. A local gave us that time and it saved a bunch of time.
Since we loved Boston so much, we decided to go again the next weekend! Ben had a meeting and I ran errands but we went to something called The Honk Festival.
We both went to one back in Austin but it wasn’t like this one! It’s pretty much a festival of random marching band members that graduated college, but who still love to play. They deck themselves out in random colors and have funny band names. It’s a fun atmosphere and we recommend going if one is coming to your town.
