Weekend Away: Boston, MA

I spent a good weekend in Boston, and here is my quick recap! 


On the weekend of March 3-5, I went on a quick trip to Boston, MA. 

This isn't my first time in Boston, but it is my first time visiting Boston with my boyfriend, and we had been talking about visiting for a long time. 

Unfortunately, we chose one of the worst times to visit. 

It was cold and windy and it limited how much we wanted to wander around the city. We also went at a time where they were stopping the Red Line for construction. 

So while it was nice to spend time with my boyfriend, the trip in general wasn't as fun as I had imagined. But there were definitely some highlights, and this post is showing you all the highlights. 

If you want to watch the vlog instead, you can find it below SOON. 


Quincy Market

One of the places I for sure wanted to visit was Quincy Market. 

And it did not disappoint. 

The way I described the market is a cleaner, and more evenly spaced Pike Place Market with a good amount of seating. 

We had lunch there, and our lunch is pictured below. It had a range of international cuisine, American classic cuisine, desserts of every variety, and of course, famous Bostonian Lobster rolls.

What's great is that the surrounding areas had little cute boutiques and shops that you could wander around after a full meal.

Too Cold for Walking 

After Quincy Market, we started heading back to our hotel room. But it was insanely windy, chilly to the bone, and just generally cold. Even though it was sunny, it didn't do much to warm either of us up. 

So of course, we stopped by a Starbucks and sat there until the combination of hot chocolate and warm air warmed us up. 

A Picturesque City 

Even though it was crazy cold in Boston when we went, it was a clear few days, and the sunset in the city made for very good photos. 

It was nice to capture them to remember the weekend by, even though my hands were numb within the first two minutes.

Food Galore 

I think one of the biggest memories of this trip is all the food I ate. 

Most of the food we ate are pictured in this post, and I feel like they do not require a lot of explanation. If you end up drooling, let me know in the comments down below ;)

Goodbye, Boston 

Overall, it was a good trip. Even though we didn't go to see a lot of places, I recommend going to Boston. It's a beautiful city, and the public transportation system is more than convenient and easy to understand. 

However, I would definitely recommend going when it's warmer ;) You'll have more energy!
