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 in Kendall Sqaure

Another vew of Friendly Toast. The decor is amazing!

[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)!

    They have a Friendly Toast in Portsmouth, NH! I didn’t know there was one in Boston. That’s awesome!

    So glad you loved Boston! I’m a Mass native, but only lived in Boston for 2 years while at Boston University. 2 of the best years of my life – second only to Montreal, where I spent the next 2 years at McGill – maybe you’d consider Montreal for next year’s Memorial Day excursion? Cheers!

    And reading the comments, my boyfriend took me to Bodega for the first time this weekend, it was really cool.

    I believe The Friendly Toast is brand spankin’ new. 🙂 I haven’t been yet, but now I know what it looks like on the inside …

    I’ve always wanted to go to Boston, I’m jealous! Sounds like a fun time.

    (And 400 Blows is a great movie!)

    I love the sign that is in the back of the wall…the one that says “Think….Don’t Drink.

    Just wanted to share a new finding of mine – these guys hand out awesome options to add polls and surveys to any site for free, really cool stuff (look them up – “runpolls”).
