Boston Getaway Weekend

This weekend I made a trip to Boston to visit a friend. It was a wonderful city to explore. It’s clean and it felt really safe there. Unlike Philly, it doesn’t seem as fast paced or overcrowded.

I stayed at my friend’s house in Squantum, which is about a twenty minute drive outside the city. It is a charming area to live in because it has a small town feel with the opportunities of the city close by. The town is believed to have been the place where Sqaunto met the pilgrims.

We went into the city of Boston on Saturday. We walked around Beacon Hill which is where I would want to live if I ever lived in the heart of Boston. It is full of character. Everyone had wreaths and garland decorating their doorsteps for the holidays. We also walked past the infamous Cheers bar. We stopped into an Irish Pub for lunch. I had the shepherd’s pie which was amazing and authentic. Didn’t want to take a picture because I thought I would weird him out so I apologize for that. Then we took a walk through Boston Commons, which is the central park of Boston. Overall, it was a great weekend and I hope I can see more of Boston in the future.
