Playing Tourist

April 29, 2013

We played tourist in our own city this weekend.  We walked around Beacon Hill, we picnicked in the Commons, and we rode the famous Sawn Boats in the Boston Public Garden.  The whole city seemed alive and kickin.  It was the perfect warm Spring weekend.

If you visit Boston, I highly recommend taking a ride on the old Swan Boats.  The whole experience harkens back to an age when one would simple promenade around the garden and take a ride.  The worn wooden benches have layer upon layer of lacquer and the aged iron still gleams.  It is a little step back in time.  And the price isn’t outrageous.

    I’ve lived here my entire life and have never been on the Swan Boats! It’s only 3 dollars? I’m heading there this week!
