A Special Place

Last weekend we travelled to Boston for the 3rd time since April. For 2 people who don't like to repeat vacations, it always makes me :-) inside when I realize how much we enjoy going there!! And we were amazingly 3/3 with the w.e.a.t.h.e.r.!!

Even though we didn't have tickets to a RED SOX game (a first), Boston seemed like the perfect place for some much-needed R&R.

Every trip we've ever taken here has lasted only one night and we pack so much into a 24-hour period we usually collapse into our hotel bed. Lots of walking, sightseeing, drinking and eating.... and ALWAYS enjoying the weather and all of the history here. First a few cityscapes:

Twice last year we spent the afternoon and had dinner in Cambridge at two fabulous restaurants, oleana and tamarind bay. We would BOTH highly recommend either one, but that was the exception rather than the rule. Our habit (20 times or more) is typically to go to the north end, Little Italy. Our all-time favorite place to eat is ARTU on Prince Street where, after being away for around 2 years, we went saturday night. They never disappoint! I can also recommend three more: Prezza, CARMEN, and Pomodoro. And.. the best part of the night is after dinner when everyone is outside roaming the streets of this quaint, old neighborhood!
More pics to come! Plan your trip now!! (I might even tell you where to get red sox tickets. shhhhhhhhhhhh!)
