Adventures in Boston: Part 2

Happy Thursday! Jodi back again to tell you about the last leg of our Boston trip a few weeks back. To see the first part, click here

We wanted to see as much of Boston as we could in the little time we had, so we decided to walk the Freedom Trail. It's a walking tour and takes you all through Boston, hitting all of the historic sites along the way. It was the perfect (not to mention cheap) way to see the entire city! We took our time, but you could probably do it in a couple hours if you were really booking it. It could also take longer if you stop and go into all of the museums and side tours along the way. The website says it's only 2.5 miles, but I feel like we walked WAY farther than that. 

The tour starts in Boston Common, which is a beautiful park in the downtown area. We had a picnic lunch and then started at the beginning of the red brick line that dictates the Freedom Trail. 

I won't spoil the entire trail for you, but it was super cool seeing all of the historic sites situated right in the middle of all of the hubbub of modern day Boston. 

A few of the highlights of the tour for us were the old State House, the site of the Boston Massacre, Fanueil House, Paul Revere's House and the USS Constitution.

Charlestown was also an absolutely beautiful part of the tour. Talk about Instagram worthy houses! I basically wanted to move into every single house we saw!

We ended the tour at the Bunker Hill Monument and got an Uber all the way back to our Airbnb. We were exhausted and starving, so we decided to end our night on a high note at one of the delicious Italian restaurants in Boston's North End. If you're in Boston, you must try La Famiglia Giorgio's restaurant. They offer traditional, homemade Italian and all the carbs you can ingest. Absolutely delicious! 

We had so much fun on our quick trip to Boston and can't wait to go back and see more of what the city has to offer! Have you ever been to Boston? If so, what's your favorite part of the city?
