Best of Boston

As I announced on Instagram a few days back, I just embarked on a two-weeks long road trip across North America and Canada. Our first stop was Boston, Massachusetts.
I was our first time here so we had a lot to visit and experience in just 2 days!!

We started our visit with one of Boston's must-see: the Freedom trail.

The Freedom trail, a 2.5-mile, red-lined route that takes you through 16 historical sites covers over 2 and a half centuries of America's most significant past and makes you discover the rich history of the American Revolution, as it began in Boston.

It starts on the Boston common a beautifully kept public park from where you can see imposing the State House.

It makes you discover countless magnificent statues, beautiful churches, old meeting houses and interesting museums.

Anywhere I looked, the views were breathtaking. This was the Old City Hall, on School street, where the first first public school in the United States were born, around the 1700s.

The past and the present live alongside the Trail and its visitors have the opportunity to see the city as it truly is.

All the red-brick buildings, the small streets lined with flowers and the historical monuments on the trail made us feel like we were in another century!

The waterfront on the Charles river was very picturesque with families taking walks together and dogs and their owners happily jogging.

We had dinner at a seafood restaurant by the water and headed back to the hotel, completely exhausted by all the walking and sightseeing.

We decided to start off our second day in Boston by visiting Harvard.

The campus was as perfectly idyllic as pictured in the myriad of movies and tv shows.

The imposing Tercentenary Theater.

The breathtaking Sanders Theater.

My essentials for the day: Bag: Chanel WOC - Sunglasses: Miu Miu - Ring: Yves Saint Laurent.

After spending the morning in Cambridge visiting the most famous university on the planet we decided to come back to the center of the city to take a walk through the magnificent Boston Public garden and ride on the swan boats.

We decided to take a walk on Newbury street, the main shopping street of the city, where Chanel, Tiffany and Co and Valentino stores are alongside with Zara and H&M.

We ended up to Trinity Church and Copley square were they were projecting a movie on a huge screen and tons of people were laying in the grass enjoying the good weather and the entertainment.

To end our day we decided to visit the Prudential Center Skywalk Observatory and enjoy the magnificent sunset views from there.

In the morning of our third day we attended a Sunday mass at the beautiful St. Mary - St. Catherine of Siena church.

And finally visited the Boston monument before leaving for the White Mountains National Park!

We absolutely loved Boston and would like to come back again during the winter to see how different the city looks! Have you ever been to Boston? What was your favorite place there?? Tell me everything in the comments! :)
