To celebrate, we’re talking about taking a mini-vacation–a long weekend–to Boston. I traveled there in April for work, but I was literally so busy that I didn’t see anything beyond the few square blocks around my hotel. I’ve visited for vacation before, but I was 15 years old and *ahem* that was kind of a long time ago, and it was only a day trip.
Vacations are so much more challenging to plan now that we have Nora. We haven’t traveled since our trip to Mexico last July, when Nora was still only crawling, and was still a happy-go-lucky infant (not a mobile, crazy, moody toddler). But I think we can handle a few days in the city with our little one.
So who wants to tell me about Boston? Where should we go (especially knowing that we have Nora in tow)? What do we need to see? Any recommendations for places we should eat?
We contemplated driving, but flights are decently priced so it’ll hopefully be easier on us to fly. Plus, we’ll take advantage of one last trip with Nora as a “lap child”–and thankfully, a very short flight–before we have to start buying her a ticket. :( So that means we’ll need to utilize public transportation throughout the whole trip. I’m no stranger to subways, but if there is anything special we should know about the T, do tell.
As usual, we’ll be attempting to score a good deal on a hotel through Priceline, so tips on areas to stay would be appreciated as well. What “zone” in the city should we plan to stay in for easy access to attractions, restaurants, and the T?
Lay it on me!
