[From left to right: Boston Common Park, Harvard Campus, Swan boat on the Boston Common Lagoon]
I have always attempted to use the long Memorial Day weekend as a chance to explore other cities and after stumbling upon $79 round trip tickets to Boston late one night, I knew Bean Town must be my next excursion! Lucky enough to have perfect weather and a friend to stay with, I was on my way! The first day in Boston, we explored Cambridge. Harvard’s Campus, Twisted Village Records, and a late night showing of 400 Blows (Tommy Lee Jones was in attendance) at The Brattle Theater were a few of the things on the itinerary for day one.

[Friendly Toast- The decor is amazing!]
The next few days were spent exploring the rest of the city. We spent an afternoon in Boston Common Park, where we took a cute swan boat ride in the lagoon. We had tasty brunch at Friendly Toast, which is the cutest restaurant I have ever seen! We walked Newbury Street and had awesome beer and vegetarian food at the Other Side Cafe, and we capped off the weekend with a Labyrinth Sing and Quote Along in Coolidge Corner. All and all, I give Boston a big thumbs up, and I would definitely go again (the next time $79 plane tickets come my way that is)!
