What the Friday…Favorite Boston Pictures

It’s hard to believe how much I actually did while I was in Boston. It was definitely a chilly whirlwind, but I spent an amazing week with my one of my dear friends, the voice behind The Great Shake Up and her family. Going through my Boston pictures I simply think, WOW #WTF I did a lot! Here are my top 13 favorite pictures. Stay tuned for more Boston pictures and recaps.

  1. Bunker Hill Monument…Charlestown, MA. I absolutely loved this part of Boston. Way too hilly for running though!!
  2. Massachusetts State House…Just look at that breathtaking gold dome. 
  3. The Democratic Donkey and The Republican Elephant…Simply moving.
  4. Boston Massacre...in front of the balcony of the Old State House.
  5. Paul Reeve’s House…He did not say, the British are coming as everyone was British. He said, the red coats are coming. Not everyone knows this little detail! 
  6. Old North Church…One if by land, and two if by sea. This is the cities oldest standing church. 
  7. Time traveller…Can’t explain who is nor why he was dressed as a red coat.
  8. A Great Day…Spending the evening with friends and family. What a great way to end a great day.
  9. The Rebecca Nurse Homestead…Makes me want to go home and watch The Crucible.
  10. Cracking into my first Lobster...It’s a lot of work, but I had a great teacher! Though this was not a lobsta in Glosta it was still a lot of fun! 
  11. Shot heard around the world…Yes it looks like a park, but this was the beginning. 
  12. The Salem Village Witchcraft Victims’ Memorial of Danvers…The Memorial serves as a reminder that each generation must confront intolerance and “witch hunts” with integrity, clear vision and courage.
  13. Motif Number 1…Located on Bradley Wharf in the harbor town of Rockport, Massachusetts, is a fishing shack, is  often the most often-painted building in America.
QOTD: Have you been to Boston? What sites do you suggest that I visit next time?

  1. I’ve never had a “lobsta from Glosta” but Legal Sea Foods is definitely a great substitute! 🙂

    The Red Coat — looks like you were off of Hanover Street in the North End. Near enough to many of the stations on the Freedom Trail. He could have been one of the Freedom Trail Players – actors who dress in period costumes to regale tourists on the events of the American Revolution. Or he could have been someone who dresses in the costume to hang around Fanueil Hall and Quincy Market, offering to take photos with tourists for a few dollars. One can often find Benjamin Franklin down at the Market, telling his tales and smiling for the cameras.

    Glad you were able to have some great weather during your visit. Boston is a gorgeous town.

    • That would have been totally cool to see Benjamin Franklin! My lobster was actually from Legal Sea Foods. Being a gluten free diner I was very impressed with the gluten free menu.

  2. I’m in LOVE LOVE LOVE with Boston! If I ever moved to the US, that would be the first city I pick. Until then, I visit.
    I loved Quincy Market, and since I’m a ball fan – Fenway!
    Also, the garden in the back of the library is just breathtaking.

    • Although I wanted to see Fenway there was simply not enough time. I already have a list of places that I want to see on my next visit to Boston!

  3. Wow, thanks for sharing! I work just outside of boston and have literally only been to 1 of the places you showed pictures of…guess it’s time to get out and explore 🙂

    • I was very lucky to have a great teacher show me how to crack lobster. Totally agreed though it can be a pain in the butt!
