Following on straight away from New York – Boston really had a lot to live up too.
Luckily, the house we were staying in was fantastic so that gave it a head-start, and then we just so happened to see not one, but a whole pod of humpback whales on our Whale Watching Trip which has to be up there with top life experiences right?!
Having said that, without those features I would have been kind of disappointed with Boston – FYI just because we are English guys it doesn’t mean we enjoy the torrential rain any more than you do!
Boston just didn’t have the buzziness I like about cities like New York and London, perhaps that’s why many people in fact prefer it, so instead we decided to just do a bunch of interesting activities instead of wandering and just soaking up atmosphere like we did in New York.
We went to the Sam Adams Brewery (top insider tip, you get given Root Beer instead of a whole pint of actual beer if you forget your ID….oops) on one particular rainy morning, watched an IMAX film about Great White Sharks on another rainy evening, visited the Harvard University Arboretum (Tree Museum to you and I) and when the sun finally decided to make its’ debut we explored the Freedom Trail and the history of America – not bad at all for my second choice of city!
