Boston Day 4

On our last day in Boston, we decided to participate in the Boston Tea Party! It was a very cute and fun reenactment! I definitely would like to bring my kids there someday because it was very kid friendly and I highly recommend it. There were actually a couple school field trips visiting that day, it was very cute to see all of the kids.

During the reenactment you get to throw fake boxes of tea into the Boston Harbor and go on a little tour of the ship. You actually start out in a court room setting and learn a little bit about the history and pretend as if you were there getting ready to participate in the Boston Tea Party. Once you finish with the boat tour, you then walk through a museum and then head upstairs and can purchase some tea samples which my sister and I did. Except we actually got ours for free because we had a coupon that we had gotten out of one of those tourists books.

The first picture in this post is actually because the night before the Bruins had one a game in the playoffs. I don't really know much about sports or hockey but it was a big deal and it was super exciting to see the whole city come together cheer on their team.

After we finished with our team, we decided to walk, a lot, to the Beaker Hill Monument. And by walk a lot, I mean walk a lot. We honestly didn't think we were going to make it in time before we had to head back to our hotel to catch our flight but it was the last thing on our list and we wanted to get it done! So we were very determined to get there and walk to the top! Which is exactly what we did. It was a lot of steps to the top but my sister and I have this thing where if we can go to the top of something, we must do it! Which is kind of odd considering I'm afraid of heights haha. 

After we finished at the Beaker Hill Monument, we had to head back to our hotel and I'm pretty sure at this point we were so exhausted that we couldn't walk anymore so we Ubered back to our hotel to pick up our luggage and then hop on the subway/train that takes you to the airport. It was extremely packed and I honestly did not think we were going to fit. And sadly more and more people just kept squeezing onto this thing at each stop. It was crazy and quite the experience!

Once we got to the airport and through security, we found our gate and we needed to find some food. So my sister went on the hunt and came back with some Wahlburgers! I honestly didn't even think of this place the whole time we were in Boston even though I knew about it and it was on my list of things to do. But we had it and it was pretty tasty. I still think I enjoy Five Guys but I am definitely glad that I was able to cross it off my list. Anyways! Until next time Boston! You were a beautiful city that I hope to visit again, soon!

XO, Steph
