My last day of vacation was spent touring Boston. I woke up really early and headed into the city. Because I enjoyed the bus tours in NYC and knew it was a good way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time, I decided to do the same thing in Boston. They have trolley tours there with about 19 different stops all around the city. I found the place to pickup my tickets and headed off on the first tour of the day.
Boston is such a cool city because there is so much history. It was so amazing to see some of the really old buildings with the backdrops of the new modern buildings.
I rode the tour all the way around so I could see everything and then decided to ride it again later and then I could get off at the places that I really wanted to see. The trolley was a little harder to see and take pictures out of than the double decker bus so I was glad I did the tour twice and could sit on different sides of the bus.
Here are some highlights of the things I saw:
|Bunker Hill Monument|
|Samuel Adams Grave|
|Where everybody knows your name....|
|Boston Tea Party|
|Massachusetts State House|
|Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge|
Part of my tour included a boat ride on the Boston Harbor Cruise. The boat ride was so nice and relaxing and had amazing views of the city.
Once I was done walking around Harvard, it was time to head to the airport to catch my flight back home.

This was truly a trip of a lifetime!
