The other side of my personality is the one that loves city life. We enjoyed a quick getaway to Boston for an overnight last weekend.
It was our third visit this year. We like to stay in what we now think
of as "our neighborhood". For the last few years we always stay in the
downtown Financial District, near Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall. We
like to wander these streets and have favorite restaurants and bars we
like to visit.
On this trip, we spent time in the historic North End. We wandered down Hanover Street to the statue of Paul Revere making his midnight
ride, then past his home that's still standing. We ate at an Italian
restaurant, Limoncello, that had awesome meatballs, and made our way
into Mike's Pastry, where we had some delicious desserts.
Near our hotel is this men's clothing store that's in a building with
some great windows. I always want to walk past this store. To my eyes,
these look like hearts. I think this shop is either on Milk Street or
Here's the Marriott Customs House by day and night (it's the tall building with the clock tower):
At night we took in the Celtics vs Magic basketball game (the Celts won!), then walked back to our hotel.
We love this city of Boston.
