Oh my gosh guys we just got back from Boston and we had THE best time!
One of our dear friends from Raleigh got married in New Hampshire not far from Boston so it was the perfect opportunity to make the most of our time up north while attending her wedding! We have known Cristy for a while and she was even our Tucker sitter. She moved back to New Hampshire a few months before we moved to SC. She reconected with an old friend, fell in love and they got married and we were so so happy for her that she found the man of her dreams!
The wedding was on Sunday afternoon so we left out of Charlotte that morning and got to Boston by lunchtime. Picked up our rental car and headed straight to NH about 1.5 hrs away. The wedding was in the quaintest picturesque town in a beautiful old church and such a beautiful drive to get there. I mean seriously we could not have gone at a more perfect time of year. The weather was cool but not too miserable cold. The trees were all changing and GORGEOUS. We honestly haven't seen fall beauty like that since our Boone days and it did our souls good.
Harvard was so beautiful and Cambridge as well! There is so so much history there. We ate lunch across the street from Harvard in a cafe', kind of like a panera I would say. We knew we were going to have a big dinner so we decided to go lite for lunch.
Adam planned our flights so that we didn't fly out till that night so we had another full day to explore Boston. Everyone told us that the Freedom Trail was a must.
hrough the whole trail and it takes you to all the stops, pretty cool way to make sure you can get everywhere easily. We made it all the way to Copp's Hill Burying Ground and the last 2 stops Bunker Hill and USS Constitution are the farthest away and we didn't have time to do those which we were ok with because they were far. Next time!
We got to see so much of the city this way, they were all right and I would definitely recommend it!
We were told (thanks Brooke & Christy!) about some food stops to make along the way. We ate at Sam LaGrassa's that was on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives. It was delicious! Definitely want to go back there one day!
Some of the stops on the trail you can go in to a certain point and then you have to pay to see the rest or go on a tour and all of them we bypassed except for Paul Reveres house. We thought it would be cool to walk inside so we did.
