I told y’all. BoysnBerry is at it again. This time we’re taking over New England. After an incident that almost involved umbrellas and an elderly woman (Becca can recount that story better), we finally made it to Boston around noon on Sunday. We dropped our luggage off and headed out to explore. Faneuil Hall was up first with Cheers for lunch then to walk the Freedom Trail and Boston Harbor at night.
We took everyone’s advice and ended our night at Mike’s Pastry
for Boston Cream Pie and to-go Cannoli’s. That cream pie. Oh my.
Then we turned in for our turn down service at The Langham where we were spoiled with robes, and chocolate, and slippers.
If anyone wants to know what it’s like to go anywhere with a blogger,
instagrammer, or pretty much any millennial look no further.
Actually. Look a little further. Look below. It looks like this:
Lunch Monday was at Chart House at Long Wharf. The building is beautiful with many of the original and historic features still visible. Becca had a Caesar salad and panko crusted chicken in citrus butter. I had New England Clam Chowder and a Lobster Roll.
Chowder=Amazing. Lobster= Not my thing.
On the way to Salem, Massachusetts, we had to stop and gawk at the views at Lynn Beach.
Then a random guy had to stop and check out the views too. I automatically assumed he was some sort of con artist when Becca took his flattery at face value. I’m not sure what that says about us. Maybe it has something to do with me being a skittish cat.
I really hope to visit Salem again, stay longer and see more. We went to the Salem Witch Museum for a good recap on the history of the witch trials then walked down Essex Street for sights and snacks. Most everything was closed with it being a holiday and off-season but the town is lovely and the Harry Potter themed shop was especially exciting!
For supper we stumbled upon Gulu-Gulu Cafe. If I could dream up the perfect spot I believe this would be it! Coffee, wine, craft beer, live music, graffiti, board games, boho/hipster people, and a cheese board that will knock your socks off! I got the TRVE Brewing Co’s Revengance Beer. I’ll be requesting that in Georgia!
We’re in Connecticut for the rest of the week to work and explore. What you don’t see in all these pictures is Becca and I on our laptops or phones working in between our little adventures. We are here for Becca to work, after all. One thing that is pretty cool is that WellsWorks Furniture (where I work) is actually delivering a table to the town we’re staying in this week. What a cool coincidence!
As you can tell, my main focuses are sights and food. Have y’all ever been to Connecticut? Have any recommendations for us? We know we want to see Hartford and Yale. But other than that, we’re up for suggestions!
