Hallelujah it’s finally Friday!! Can I get an AMEN for Friday?? This honestly seems like it was the longest. week. ever. Ew.
So all week long I have been telling you about my epic road trip and the cities I will be visiting. So far we have covered Washington DC, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, and New York City. Today we are going to cover the last leg of the trip, Boston!!
I have never been to Boston before and I can’t wait to go!! There is just so much history there and so many cool things to do. Is it bad that I really just want to walk around Harvard and pretend like I’m a student there? LOL!!
I have a few must-do’s on my list such as tour Fenway, walk the Freedom Trail, check out the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, and walk along the waterfront.
Since Salem is close to Boston I think we are going to go to Salem for the day and check out all the spooky stuff they have up there! I really want to check out the Salem Witch Trials Memorial, the Witch House, and the old cemeteries and there are a few night walking tours which would be fun!!
How fun would that be???
I have no idea where to eat in with Boston or Salem so if you are a local or have been there before then tell me your favorite place!!
Have you been to Boston or Salem??
What was your favorite thing to do??
Where was your favorite place to eat??

I live in Boston and have been to Salem many times. Eat at the Salem Beer Works. In Boston, go to the North End :)
I’ve never been to Boston but it looks like a great place to visit! I’m so enjoying following along with your travels!

I’d love to visit Boston. All of those New England cities are so steeped in history.
I grew up in New York and New Jersey but I never visited Boston. I am now wishing I had! I live in Iowa these days so it is going to be quite a trip but I will have to visit some of these places someday for sure!

We were going to go to Boston before when we were in Cape Cod, but the weather was so bad :( I do really want to go! We wanted to visit Harvard, but thankfully on our way home the GPS made us go through New Haven….YALE!! We visited there for like an hour.
Melissa Pezza says
Boston is an amazing city. There’s so much history there, and it’s such fun to explore it.
Sandy KS says
I have never been to Boston. I would love to travel one day and visit the historical places.
I have still not visited Boston. But, I must say this is city that is at the top of my “Must-Visit” list!
Hi Ricci! Not sure if you remember me from my blogging days but I couldn’t help but comment on your Boston post! Sorry for the long comment! Enjoy your trip!!
If you’re by Fenway check out Sweet Cheeks – it’s a BBQ place! On nice days the huge front windows are wide open to the street :) There is also a Tasty Burger right there too. Both restaurants are on Boylston Street.
Legal Harborside is a great option if you want seafood & to eat on the water. It’s 3 floors with 3 menus! And outside dining!
If you love Mexican food and make it down near the Seaport District at some point during your trip you have to go to Temazcal Tequila Cantina. So delicious!
There are also a couple of food trucks to keep an eye out for! Roxy’s Grilled Cheese does all sorts of gourmet Grilled Cheese. Cameo Macaron has THE cutest pink truck and most delicious macarons! They both have websites with schedules :)
Newbury Street is another fun option to walk – it has shops & restaurants as well! I know there is a Shake Shack there and a Georgetown Cupcake if you miss it on your other stops!
Look up the “Go Boston” card!! Not sure how it works but I think you pay and end up getting deals if you are interested in doing a duck boat, going whale watching, tour of Fenway too and museums etc.!
I’ve lived in Boston my entire life – I don’t think I could ever live anywhere else! If anything – get fried clams (with bellies!) and french fries somewhere!

I used to live in Boston. In fact I was just in Salem last week on vacation. I ate at Fins in Pickering Wharf. So good :)
Kelly Hutchinson says
I have never been to Boston or Salem, but they are both on my bucket list. They have such interesting places to visit.
Grace Hodgin says
I’d love to visit Boston and going to Salem would be really interesting. Such history in that town and I’ve never been so I can not suggest any place to dine. Hope you have a great time.
Liz Mays says
This will be such an awesome trip! This is one of the cities you just have to check out when exploring the east coast.
I’ve never been in boston . but boston is a great and nice place someday i wanna live in boston with my family This is one of the cities you just have to check out when exploring the east coast.
I love Boston, there is so much history and it reminds me slightly of San Francisco. When I’m in Boston, I love visiting Newbury Street and walking through Boston Commons. I can’t wait to see the photos from your trip!
Annemarie LeBlanc says
I totally missed this the last time I was in Boston! I will keeping this in mind when I am back in the area.
Lauren R says
I have always wanted to go to Boston, but I’ve never made it there! Thanks for posting these awesome pictures! I loved them!
The Freedom Trail is such a unique way to look at historical sites. Old North Church, Paul Revere’s House, and Bunker Hill are a few places that were recommended to me.
I would love to visit the area. There are some bloggers there I’d like to meet too!
Boston sounds like a really nice place to visit. I would love to explore it someday.
I consider myself a scaredy cat that’s why I don’t like watching horror films, but that witch house is interesting. I didn’t know it exists. I think it wold be fun to check it out with my boys.
Ann Bacciaglia says
Boston is a great place to visit. I am looking forward to going there again soon.

I have always wanted to visit Boston one day. I have a friend who travels there often and alway love watching her updates.
I went to Salem in High School and remember having a great time. We went to Boston about 10 years ago and I am hoping to go back soon!
