It’s a city where a 5 year old boy and an 86 year old grandmother will
be wearing the same Boston Red Sox hat on the T and asking the same question each and every morning- how did the Sox do last night? Baseball is not just another sport in Boston, it’s part of the culture…it is Boston. That “Fever Pitch” movie was no joke. Just get used to it and leave your opposing team jerseys at home unless you want to get hit in the head with a bottle. Seriously, especially you Yankees fans.
Boston is a great city that blends its future into its storied Boston
Tea Party past. Walk The Freedom Trail to step back in time for some
Revolutionary history. And then you have the cosmopolitan new
architecture right next to Paul Revere. Think charming New England
with those lovely brownstones.
Faneuil Hall is a must. Explore the North End for “to die for” Italian…
just like grandma makes.
