You can walk in the same steps that so many historical figures have walked before. Also, the size of the city is great. You are able to walk from one end of the city to the other, which makes everything accessible.
My Perfect Day
What to do in a place like this if you only have 24 hours?
A perfect day in Boston for me starts with enjoying a cup of coffee outside from Tatte Bakery and getting some fresh air. Then, depending on the weather, I would explore the North End and Beacon Hill neighborhoods and take pictures. A weather change always makes me excited, it is New England after all! We are always embracing the unexpected and the constant change of weather throughout each season. I would get a sandwich to-go from Sam LaGrassa’s and enjoy it in the beautiful Boston Public Garden. I would take a stroll through the South End viewing the beautiful Victorian style homes and then head over to my favorite place to be for sunset, the Charles River Esplanade, taking in the city skyline.
Where to Stay
I loved the classic architecture of the building and the contemporary comforts. When we explored the hotel we would walk from room to room, space to space and light would constantly pour in from the giant windows that overlooked the busy Boston streets. While my room had the giant round windows that overlooked the Custom House Tower, I was equally amazed by the views on the other side of the building. When exiting the building, you were positioned right in front of the old Massachusetts State House, a historic brick building that is actually a stop on the Freedom Trail (a path, well worth exploring that brings you to the most historic sites all over Boston). The hotel’s architecture, grounds and design all hold qualities that are related to Boston and the Ames really pays homage to the city.
There are so many different types of people. Boston is filled with college students, business professionals, artists, scientists, doctors, and of course, the hardcore sports fans. The people here are incredibly hard working, persistent, committed to their passions, and protective of their hometown.
