Three days of biking, baseball, and historical city views; Boston. Boston has been a city on our must-see check list for such a long time and FINALLY we got to see this wonderful area.  We took a short weekend to the East Coast and definitely filled every hour with enjoyable activities.  We stayed in the beautiful historical district of Boston and our hotel was nestled right in the center of lively streets and great Irish pubs.  We were a short distance from the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, which was a fun spot to grab a coffee and walk around or sit down for a wonderful lunch or dinner.  (below a photo of part of the Faneuil Hall Marketplace)

Our first day in Boston started out with us renting two bikes from a place called Adventours which was located right next to our hotel.  All throughout Boston there are lovely paved bike paths that make traveling easy and fun.  The bike path that we took that morning was along the water most of the time and was surrounded by charming parks.

Our first stop on our excursion was to the famous Fenway Park!  Even though it was not baseball season it was still a fun sight to see.  We went to the well-known bar called the Bleacher Bar, which is located right under the Green Monster and enable you to see the field from the bar.  It was amazing to see the field while drinking your beer or having some bar food and fun fact in the men’s restroom they have windows onto the field so no baseball time is missed!  (below is the bleacher bar entrance, the view, and the fabulous onion rings)

After Fenway we decided to bike into the city and do a little shopping and coffee stop.  The city was marvelous!  The building structures varied from historical stone to gleaming glass.  If wanting to see the city from a different view I suggest going to the Skywalk.  From here you can see all directions of the city, I recommend trying to go during the sunset and then have a nice dinner after downtown. (image below is the view from the Skywalk during the day)

We walked around the city for a bit and took in all of the lovely architecture before venturing back down the city roads to our hotel.

Right near our hotel was the cutest park with a romantic lighten tunnel, which makes for a nice stroll after an amorous dinner.  This tunnel is located in Christopher Columbus Park and is definitely enchanting.

After dinner we spent time with friends and went out in the Cambridge area which was a blast!  Even though Boston was a short trip for us, it was filled with adventure and yearning to go back.
