Hey Babes! Earlier this year, in late May, we took a trip to the Northeast and we fell in love to say the least. Boston is rich in colonial history and beautiful cobble stones. I wanted to share what I saw during my trip.
We found round trip tickets to Providence, RI for $40. Yes, $40 RT via Frontier. It was a quick weekend trip. The flight was from Austin, TX to Providence, RI, we rented a car and drove to Boston, MA (about 45 min – 1 hours).
This is a 2 ½ mile trail made of red bricks that leads you to 16 of the most historically significant sites in the USA. We were able to see Paul Reverse’s house which was incredible to me. We chose to walk at our leisure and only see the sites we wanted to see. You can of course pay for a guided walking. The Freedom Trail is a must when in Boston.
Ye Olde Union Oyster House
Established in 1826, this is the United States’ oldest restaurant. Stop by for lunch and make sure to order the clam chowder, so good. This restaurant is actually located on the Freedom Trail.
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
This is a 15-century Venetian palace that houses a world- class art collection, including a self-portrait of Rembrandt at age 23 from 1629! It is located in the Fenway/Kenmore neighborhood, where you can also visit the Museum of Fine Arts as well as many Universities.
Brunch at Saltie Girl
This restaurant is so so so delicious. It was our last stop in Boston and it did not disappoint. It’s very tiny in there so you many want to get there early before you get too hungry since there many be a wait. I have dreams about their lobster rolls.
While waiting for our table at Saltie Girl, we took a stroll down Newbury Street. Its incredible to see all the old buildings that are now filled with high end stories and local boutiques.
In Boston we stayed at the Hyatt House Boston/Burlington. It’s located northwest of the city. Great hotel. We reserved a two bedroom suite. Super spacious living room and great kitchen area. Both rooms were also a great size. We rented a car to get around but it was only a 15 min drive into the city center.
