Trip to Boston!

Hello Hello! Hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday! In today's post, I will be sharing a few pictures from my trip to Boston. Despite it being pretty hot outside that day, they were also preparing for a water parade of the boats in their harbor for Independence Day. From Providence to Boston, it was about an hour train ride. We started out the day by meeting up with a friend and grabbing some Dim Sum at Hei La Moon Restaurant in Boston Chinatown. The food was so yummy...I only realized at the end of the meal, that I forgot to take pictures. As we were leaving though, we saw this giant sitting in his tank...

That's my guy friend's hand used for comparison...

We decided after lunch, that we would take a "duck" tour (tour on land and water). Along the way, we passed by the Old State House where the US Constitution was read off the balcony for the first time.

We also passed by the Children's Museum where I saw Arthur lounging on the roop...

Then we transitioned from land to water and sailed by the USS Constitution (black boat in the back). It is actually the oldest sailing ship (makes 1 trip a year on the 4th of July).

I love the older styled ships. I think they are always so majestic and pretty!

We also had the opportunity to see some naval ships in the harbor. I don't think they normally dock there, but again, due to the holidays we were lucky enough to see them.

After an eventful day, we wound down with some yummy food at Anthem. My friend purchase this sangria. I had never tried it before and am not partial to alcohol, but this actually tasted pretty good (I took a sip ^__^)!

My little sister and I shared a Mac n Cheese with butter poached lobster. The lobster was pretty good, but all of us agreed, we wished the sauce was thicker.

Of course, when in Boston, we had to get the Clam Chowda! This was absolutely delicious!

We returned back to Providence later that night and the next day, we bummed around and just chilled.
For dinner, we ate at La Creperie on Fones Alley. I took the "Connie" to go (Nutella and Banana crepe). I couldn't resist!

I think next time, I'd like to visit Salem, Massachusetts (1 day trip). Have you been to Salem or Boston before? Do you like trips to historical places? Let me know what you think! I'd love to hear your thoughts.
