The Many Things to Do in Boston
While my wife and I made the long haul up the east coast, we knew we had to stop at Boston, Massachusetts. Being the huge sports fan that I am, it is absolutely necessary to at least one type of sporting event while I am there. Lucky for me, it was baseball season! One late Tuesday evening we made our way to Fenway Park. It took roughly 30 minutes to arrive there from our vacation rental home. So that was not too bad. I was pretty well awe struck by being in such a venue like Fenway where it has so much historical precedence in sports.
However, almost everywhere you look in Boston is something dealing with history. Being one of the oldest cities in the nation, it really should not be too surprising. I suppose I am just not used to seeing such old architecture in the mid-west where I am from. We decided while spending a few days in Boston that we would visit many of the museums in the area.
Of course, we can not seem to go anywhere without a shopping extravaganza. I am surprised that anytime we go anywhere we do not need to rent a U-Haul trailer to bring everything back. My wife and I decided to spend a good portion of an afternoon at the Main Street Districts. They say there are somewhere around 2,000 places to shop in the area. This is like a dream for my wife!
Outside of that, we spent a lot of time at our vacation home relaxing. While we stopped at numerous places throughout the east coast, this was probably one of the more relaxing places we stayed. The weather was great, and our vacation rental home in Boston had a nice hot-tub that I made sure my aching bones got in each evening. It was a blast!
