Visiting Boston & A Red Sox Game

Boston Skyline

Boston is my new favorite city. I know I said that when I visited Philly – but seriously Boston is my favorite, without a doubt. I want to pack up and move there immediately!

My husband and I were only there for a couple days and sorry, I wasn’t a very good blogger while I was there. This post will not do Boston nearly the justice it deserves. I didn’t take nearly as many photos as I should’ve, or keep track of exactly every spot we visited, and we had no tours planned.

See, Boston is a great city to just walk and admire.

These are actual Legos on the side of a building – love it!


I think the most touristy thing we did was wander past the location of the Boston Tea Party. We debated doing the tour at the Boston Tea Party Museum, but in the end, decided to continue our journey of wandering aimlessly through the city. (We did watch some little kids through “boxes of tea” over the edge of the ship, though. Haha.)

So, what did we do in Boston? We managed to walk part of The Freedom Trail and explored Quincy Market and walked along Massachusetts Ave. and The Harvard Bridge.

We visited a bunch of restaurants and bars – all amazing. My favorites were Meadhall in Cambridge (loved the huge selection of craft beer there), The Hawthorne (super awesome bar with a very unique atmosphere – thanks to Jen of Dressing With Class for the recommendation!), Scollay Square (great food, service and a wonderful atmosphere).

We also did quite a bit of shopping, and fortunately didn’t buy too much! My favorite store was Newbury Comics (thanks again to Jen for the recommendation!) I did the most damage there, with a few new comic books and the most amazing Star Wars shirt ever…don’t worry it’ll be appearing in an outfit post soon!

We also went to Fenway Park for a Boston Red Sox game, which was an absolute blast! Being from Wisconsin, I know my team of choice is supposed to be the Brewers..and they are, kind of (they make it a bit hard, unlike the Packers!). But for the night I figured it would be fine to switch teams. The Red Sox played the Royals and won 7-2. We had hot dogs and beer, and sang Sweet Caroline before the bottom of the 8th inning, and got excited every time Big Papi came up to bat (a.k.a. David Ortiz) – it was a wonderful way to spend a Friday night.

If you’re in Boston, though, and don’t have tickets to the game, you can also watch it right from The Bleacher Bar! It’s super cool. This bar is located right beneath the bleachers of Fenway and has a great view of center field.

We did take quite a few photos at Fenway. I even managed to put together a mini outfit post at Fenway. (Priorities, haha).

Who else has been to Boston? And what were some of your favorite spots in the city? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I just had to comment after reading this post. I know this is from 5 years ago but being from the Boston area , North shore really, had to say what a great city and state we have here.. Not just the obvious attractions but out away from the city we have more things that are amazing. There’s a wonderful museum in Salem called the Peabody Essex that is top notch. And of course Salem itself is a trip. Especially at Halloween… Crowded almost all of October. Up where I live which is 30 mins. from Boston, we have amazing beaches..I can throw a stone and it will land in N.H. One town south of me is actually a very small city called Newburyport. One of the first if not the first shipping port in the U.S. People come here all the time to stroll around the city in all it’s historic glory. And it’s a short trip down the turnpike to Plum Island and THE best lobster ( or as we say lobstah..) rolls at Bob’s Lobster.. I’m not kidding, THE BEST!

  2. Saw your tweet about this trip and had to chime in. I love Boston. Went there two months ago and blogged about it. You look great at Fenway!

    1. Boston is the best! So glad you agree! 🙂 I will have to look for your blog post on it! And thank you so much!

  3. Oh my, can you believe that I am THIS behind on commenting?!?! Such a bad friend! :/ Especially since these are the posts from when I saw you! Hehe….I read all of your posts the day they go up, but tend to slack off in the commenting department- sorry Lindsey!!

    You look absolutely adorable! I’m SO happy that you like the pin, and that you enjoyed your trip to Boston! You absolutely must come back. The Boston Tea Party Museum is actually pretty awesome, so even though you didn’t have the chance to go this time around, you should put it on your to do list, hehe.


    1. Oh gosh! Don’t worry about it Jen! And I LOVE my pin, thank you so much! It is definitely due for another outfit post. 🙂 And I am already plotting on how I can return to Boston..I really do love your city. 🙂

  4. Great photos and glad to see some photos of your trip! I’ve never actually been to Boston, but heard lot’s of great things from friends that have been. Can’t wait to see more photos from ur trips!


  5. Boston is a great city.. visited it a couple of years back.. and even visited a Red Sox game. I think I like Boston so much because it also has a very European feel to it while also being very American.

    Looking great in that outfit! 🙂

    1. That’s awesome, Natassia! And I agree, it does have a very European feel. I felt the same about Philly, too. And thank you so much! 🙂

  6. Hey Dear,
    I really like your Posts & you have great Pictures. Would you like to support each other and follow via Bloglovin, Google + & GFC? That would be so cool, and I hope we stay in touch. 🙂

    Greetings, Sophia xx

  7. These photos are great! Looks like such a beautiful day too. Boston is one of the most amazing cities. I need to get back there! Im glad you had such a wonderful time there. It’s lovely to walk around Boston and take everything in. I can’t wait for your next part of the vacation post!


    1. Thank you so much, Amanda! The weather was really warm but nice while we were there! I already feel like I need to get back there. 🙂

  8. Your shorts are super cute and you look adorable in this little Red Sox tee. I have been to Boston and my favorite part was visiting the Harvard campus and wearing long wool coats because it was so cold. I also enjoyed seeing the original Cheers bar.


    1. Aw thank you, Joanna! It’s terrible, I was actually staying in Cambridge and never made it over to Harvard’s campus. That is a must when I return! I am also really looking forward to wearing coats again. And we managed to see a replica of the cheers bar when we were in Quincy Market. Haha. But I was a terrible tourist and never made it to the original!(I realized later that I had dinner practically right next it, though. Jeez.)

  9. So glad you had a great time in Boston. Strangely enough I’ve never actually been there. I grew up in CT and have been to Mass and surrounding states, but have never actually seen Boston. Loved seeing the city through your eyes though and can’t wait to read about your adventures with Jen!
    PS- Loved the mini photoshoot too – looking cute as always!
