Time to recap the other highlight of our honeymoon: a day trip to Boston! A quick two-hour drive from Portland, Boston was at the top of my history loving Red Head’s must-see list. He may have had his doubts after we drove into the city and spent the better part of an hour trying to find a parking spot but we powered through. One bit of advice if you’re planning to visit, consider public transportation. The roads are a nightmare! (Reference this.) But once we found a spot we spent about six hours exploring the city on foot and loved every second.
Some of my favorite parts of the city were the little nooks we stumbled upon. Homes and businesses are sandwiched in between historical landmarks and the foliage was at its late September best.
The majority of our time in Boston we stuck to this red line, better known as The Freedom Trail. It’s about 2.5 miles long, stretches through the whole city and hits over 15 historical landmarks along the way.
The weather was perfect and acted as a great backdrop for the numerous upward-looking photos we took.
The Freedom Trail ends at the U.S.S. Constitution where I had to fight the urge to chant ‘U-S-A’ on repeat. Something about 200-year old ships just has that effect on me, I guess! Overall, I give our honeymoon two thumbs up. We found time to relax, managed to explore new cities, ate and drank to our hearts’ content and even managed to fit in some history lessons along the way. Time to start planning our next trip, it seems! Suggestions?
