Around Boston

Boston Public Garden

Boston is one of my favorite cities. There is so much to see and do there, and it’s a great city to just walk around in for hours. Between walking and public transportation, it’s very easy to get around without a car. When we visited last month, we walked a total of 34 miles in four days!

This is Acorn Street in Beacon Hill, supposedly the most-photographed street in Boston. We had never seen it before, but it is indeed very charming.

Not pictured: we had coffee and breakfast every morning at Thinking Cup (which has three locations in the North End, Tremont Street, and Newbury Street) and a fabulous Italian dinner in the North End at Trattoria.

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency Boston in the Theater District, which gives good value if you’re redeeming Hyatt points to stay there (15,000 points per night for rooms that usually run around $300, or you can use your cardholder free anniversary night – we used a combination of both).
