I had an informational interview in the financial district, and took the T from the airport. If you are flying to Boston, I would suggest using the free airport shuttle to take to the T, then take the T into Boston! It's fairly easy to use, and I got around just fine!
I hung out on State St. with my suitcase for around four hours, then finally decided to check out the area! I ran into Faneuil Hall as well as Quincy Market, which was really cool.
After my informational interview, I headed to the site of the Boston Massacre to take T to Northeastern to meet MB
We grabbed a bite to eat at Panera, and went to Whole Foods to grab snacks for the weekend. (Am I the only one who eats more than their significant other?)
After that I wanted to walk around more, so we walked over to Fenway to take some pictures. After that we grabbed a beer at Boston Beer Works. I had a blueberry and watermelon beer, which was okay. I liked the blueberry beer better for sure!
We got up and wanted to start the Freedom Trail right away. After a bagel from Panera, we headed to the T station for some Dunkin Donuts coffee and a ride to Boston Commons where the Freedom Trail starts. We walked the trail and had a great time! For lunch we stopped in Quincy Market during a quick downpour. I grabbed a fried clam roll, and MB had barbecue chicken mac and cheese. Both were pretty delicious.
We walked the trail, and even climbed the Bunker Hill Monument (#294steps)
We walked around a bit, and ended up back at Boston Commons. After that we headed back for the night.
My favorite person in the world
After the library we went back to Little Italy and grabbed Mike's Pastry canolies and then coffee from a little cafe near by. We headed to the cutest little park and ate them while just enjoying the weather!
After that we headed back to MB's apartment and ate some fruit. (Too much sweet for me that day!) We watched The Butler, then went to sleep.
Monday was simply a travel day for me. But it was a long one!
I wish the time I had to visit was much longer. I had the best weekend with MB, and every time I see him I wish more and more that we were done with long distance!
