Walking through the Boston Commons Park along side the ice skating rink & winding paths was so peaceful. Brick buildings lined the park & we kept a sharp look out for our next destination. What would a visit to Boston be without stopping in at the bar where everyone knows your name? At the far end of the Boston Commons (opposite from the Park Church), you can’t miss the yellow Cheers flag waving you in!
We popped downstairs just like in the show! I half hoped that everyone would say my name as I entered!
The crowd seemed to be a mix of tourists & local families just enjoying some casual food. After settling in, Ben got the locally brewed Sam Adams winter cider. I opted for my usual bar drink, pretending as if they already knew what to get me. 😉
I regretted not joining Ben in the local cider. It was delicious!
Upstairs they kept the original set intact! It was really neat to see it all set up with the studio lights & everything!
We wrapped up our Boston trip with a walk through the quintessential brownstones of Beacon Hill. As we wandered along noticing the smoke from the chimney’s on that cold day, I debated which one I would want to live in!
The city is just so rich with historic & unique architecture. I couldn’t get enough of it! History seemed to pop up on every corner. Even when you are least expecting it! Living in California where, aside from our Missions, we seem to bulldoze everything & build new, it was refreshing to be among such history.
If I lived here, I would have to embrace the New England lifestyle, like this family did! I love the little touches!
Join us next week for our Wanderlust Wednesday food tour of Boston & you will see the REAL reason why I would love to live in Boston. I’ll give you a hint….it’s the amazing food!
