Another Behind The Scenes, and this month we are in Boston.
I studied in Boston from 2010 to 2015, and for some semesters, I traveled from Montreal every week to be on Campus (Go Crimson). I remember driving every week to Boston and dreaming about moving there one day!
Then, after I graduated, I started to get involved, and I now sit on the board of directors of Mission Safe. Their mission is to work with Boston’s highly at-risk youth and their families to gain the skills and confidence to thrive, not just survive, and improve their community and world.
Here are some of the places you must see in Boston…
and it’s free! Freedom Trail is a 2.5-mile line alternately painted red or paved in red brick, guiding visitors to some of the city’s most important historical sights.
Boston Common & Boston’s Public Garden
Boston Common is a 50-acre park founded in 1634; it is the oldest public park in the United States, whereas the Public Garden. Boston’s Public Garden, located in Beacon Hill, is America’s oldest botanical garden. All year round, you can take a walk in both parks.
is where legendary games have played out over the decades, and you can get excellent tours run year-round.
was built in 1742 as a public meeting space and market… You need to stop and see it. There is a Cheers Restaurant (you’ve seen the TV Show ?), but I suggest going to the original one on Beacon Street… children are allowed until 10 PM (after 21+).
Massachusetts State House…
is an iconic site from the outside, but take a free tour inside to learn its history.
…and before you leave, stop at Thinking Cup to grab a coffee!
If you visit Boston, take pictures, and share all your adventures, I’d love to hear it! And you, are you working during your vacation, or do you have a nomad life and work abroad? Let us know!
So Cheers to your next vacation, Y’all!
