East Coast Adventures: Part 3

On Sunday evening we made the 4 hour drive to Boston. We drove over the Bunker Hill Bridge and it was amazing. As soon as you think you are getting into the city the road takes you under the city and a few minutes later we arrived on the opposite end of Boston. By the time we made it to the hotel and dropped our stuff off we were starved. We decided to walk around to find a place to eat, and we found this little pizza place and stuffed our faces with mushroom ravioli (yum) and pizza. We were about to order some ice cream when the waitress told us they were cleaning out the machines and they had some let over we could just take. Of course we said we would take it and she came over with 3 cartons. Wahoo!
On Monday The Freedom Trail was our first priority and boy was it amazing. It was about a 3 mile walk and it took us all around the city to different historical sites like; the oldest tavern in America, Bell in Hand, that opened in 1795, the site of the Boston Massacre, old graveyards, chapels, and across the bridge to Bunker hill where the famous line "Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes" was spoken.
Then we headed up to the little town of Salem. Here we went to the Salem Witch Museum and the graveyard where they have a memorial where the people killed in the trials are remembered.
Later that night we went to dinner at the absolute best indian restaurant for our 3 year anniversary. Then we headed to Fenway park and to walk around the city a bit more.
I loved Boston so much every little street was so cute and perfect. I only wish we had more then a day to take in all the beauty.
This trip was the perfect way to spend our anniversary. I keep getting asked what place I loved the most, NYC, Vermont or Boston? I actually don't know I loved it all! Every place had something beautiful and different to offer. I already want to go back!
