Visiting Boston

 After departing Hershey, PA we drove to Boston for a three-night stay. 

 We purchased tickets for the Old Town Trolley Tours and set out for the first day in Boston. 
 We enjoyed seeing many historic and fun sites along the tour. 


 I just had to snap a photo of the old teapot sign below. 


 A harbor cruise was included in our tour. 
 The USS Constitution, Old Ironsides, was on our list of places the guys wanted to see. 
Taking the harbor cruise was a great way to get there. 

 Austin's  8th grade American History class prepared him for touring Boston. 
Climbing the nearly 300 steps of the Bunker Hill Monument was tops on his list
on our 2nd day in Boston. 
He thoroughly enjoyed the Bunker Hill Museum, also. 
 A lunch at Cheers and shopping at Faneuil Hall and the Quincy Market were a must, too. 



I can not complete this post without telling you about the dinners we enjoyed at 
Legal Sea Foods.  Yes, two nights in a row we ate here, because
in addition to great food and great service,
 the Gluten Free menu and service were the BEST!
They even had chickpea four battered seafood fried in a separate fryer.
The warm crab dip with seafood chips was soooo good!
 We stayed at the Boston Marriott Long Wharf Hotel,  a very convenient location! 

Remember the top photo of the clock tower of the Marriott's Custom House?
This is the view on the morning we departed Boston after the fog and rain moved in. 


Visiting Boston just a few days before July 4th
was a great way for our family to celebrate
the history of the American Independence.

Great minds think alike: we both have ships in our posts today, ha! Appreciate the Boston recommendations, as the DH informed me last night he wants us to go there soon!

We once visited here and should have taken this tour. It sounds great. We did a walking tour, sore feet! Loved seeing the teapot hanging there with Starbucks, nice catch.
