Day 2 - Boston


The Boston Marathon was today - a lot of streets shut down and everyone came out to watch the runners. After the professional runners came through, I had lunch at Casa Romero. I went back to Boylston to watch more of the marathon and headed over to the Cactus Club to have some drinks. When the marathon was finished, I went to the theater district to see a show at the Stuart Street Playhouse.

Day 3 - Boston


I spent the morning at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, which are right next to each other. After lunch, I went over to Jamaica Plain to check out the Arnold Arboretum because it was such a beautiful day. After a quick dinner in JP I went over to Fenway to see the Sox play.

Day 4 - Charlestown, Boston


Started out at the U.S.S. constitution and had lunch at Tavern on the Water out on the deck. From there, I followed the Freedom Trail, which took most of the afternoon. At the end, I headed back to the North End to eat at Giacomo's (there was a bit of a line) but it was worth it because it's so cheap and good! From there I headed over to the Black Rose for some Irish folk singing.
