Searching for memories of Boston

As I often do these days, I was browsing my old photo albums and came across a small collection from my trip to Boston, United States back in spring of 2012. I visited the northeastern American city for a short weekend to attend a conference, and stayed at the Sheraton Boston Hotel downtown.

Regrettably, I really did not see much of Boston on this brief trip, despite having invested in a cross country flight all the way from Vancouver, Canada where I was living at the time. I only managed to fit in a short walk through the Back Bay and Fenway neighbourhoods, rode the “T”, and saw a handful of notable sights from the outside. These included the Boston Public Library, Boston University Theatre, and the gigantic Christian Science Center on the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Huntington Avenue.

If I ever make it back to Boston someday, my bucket list includes:

Walking the Freedom Trail.

Exploring Boston Common.

Visiting Boston Public Gardens.

Watching a ballgame at Fenway Park.

Touring Harvard University campus.

Finding the best clam chowder, lobster roll, and Boston cream pie.

Lots more eating!

What are your recommendations for things to do on a trip to Boston?

  1. You have been blessed with a beautiful blue sky. There is so much to see in a big city like Boston that it is difficult to visit it all at once.

  3. I haven’t gone back to Boston since 2007. Memories are fuzzy, but I remember wandering Quincy Market, as well as having massive lobsters at a historic restaurant with no name. Also, lobster rolls=perfection. 🙂

    1. I’ll have to add Quincy Market to my list. I don’t think I’ve ever had a particularly amazing lobster roll, definitely want to try!

  5. I’ve long wanted to go there. The husband and I considered it for our upcoming mid-October break, but ultimately decided against going anywhere – especially a big city – because of COVID. Ugh.
