When in Boston, we stayed at the Ames hotel, which we loved! It was centrally located in Downtown Boston. Boston is a very walkable city. We took a few Uber rides, but mostly we walked. As we headed to the Boston Tea Party Museum, we accidentally stumbled upon the site of the Boston Massacre. It was pretty surreal to see something in person after reading about it in history books. Although the space is now built up, its worth a moment to stop & remember.
Even the streets are historic…we found Quaker Lane!
Dunkin Donuts seemed to be located on every single corner. Everywhere we looked we saw people scurrying around with their Dunkin cups. It was a freezing morning so we decided to join the Boston culture & pop in for a quick breakfast!
It was amazing that a casual evening stroll took us past so many historic spots. Our hotel looked out on the Old Meeting House. This historic church was home to the meetings that occurred after the Boston Massacre. Famous orators, including John Hancock, hotly debated the British taxation. From these meetings a small group left to raid the ships in what was to become know as the Boston Tea Party.
Continuing our walk along the Freedom trail we explored the Old City Hall & King’s Chapel.
What would a trip to Boston be without trying Boston Cream Pie at the Omni Hotel where Boston Cream Pie was created? Good thing we got a lot of walking in. I was ready for some dessert! The hotel itself was stunning & filled with historical influence.
The famous Boston Cream Pie came out looking more like a fancy cake & paired well with our tea martini & hot tea on that cold night.
Check back next week for Wanderlust Wednesday as we hop over to another big east coast town, New York City!
