I've always wanted to visit Boston and finally, that dream came true. Boston is a quaint, beautiful city and I honestly would move there if I ever got the chance. I've been lucky enough to travel to some beautiful places this Autumn/Winter, I only just got back from New York and Cuba and thought nothing could top them, but, Boston was unexpectedly perfect. Let's take a look at this perfect city...
It was a bright, chilly day
We wandered for hours until we stumbled across the famous MIT
MIT University is fascinating, it was weird to stand where so many incredible inventors have stood.
The buildings were spectacular.
We hopped on a subway and within minutes, we were at another famous Boston University; Harvard.
Harvard had no buzz, not even a sound, but the beauty of the campus was over whelming.
As the sun set, we headed to Cambridge - the area which Harvard is within. It reminded me of my time in Georgetown in Washington D.C.
and beautiful lights surrounded us.
It wasn't long before we stopped off for a cupcake though.
Sweet cupcakes is a pretty famous Boston cupcake cafe and it did impress.
As we continued to wander, we accidentally stumbled across the Boston skyline in all it's glory.
Good fashion choices went out of the window, it was super cold so I just whacked on my Missguided fur jacket (a lifesaver trust me) with my Wildfox Christmas jumper and my trusty Longchamp bag. Scarf wrapped around my neck, it was time to walk in the beautiful city breeze.
We decided to stop for dinner and found an American diner
Nachos for me
and naturally, fajitas too.
On the walk back to our hotel, we discovered Max Brenner Chocolate bar and stocked up on Christmas presents
It felt like a scene from Love Actually when I saw all the beautiful Christmas trees lining the Boston streets on a quaint evening.
We got up bright and early the next morning and found a cute Italian breakfast joint.
Blueberry pancakes for me.
We set off walking along the Freedom Trail where we saw historical building after historical building
and beautiful other shops along the way.
Boston is old, but new at the same time. I felt at home for the first time since starting my trip.
After lots of wandering, we finally reached Quincy Market.
The foodie inside me died a little bit.
You can get anything at Quincy Market.
They even sell boxes of cookie dough to take away.
and cupcakes in a jar.
When I could finally pull myself away from the food, I walked outside and discovered a beautiful Christmas tree - ready to be lit that evening!
Not having long left in Boston, next we headed to the North End - my favourite part of the city.
The North end is basically home to Little Italy - aka, my dream.
Evert single shop fascinated me.
We spent the rest of the day wandering around.
I think the best way to explore a city is to just wander, it's always exciting stumbling across random, beautiful areas
I stopped to take photos so many times because everything was so rustic and beautiful
That evening we went to check out the local ice rink.
and popped back to Quincy market for a cupcake in a jar and to watch the Christmas light switch on
Quincy market looked different this time...
It was ready for Christmas!
That Wildfox jumper again!
It got a bit chilly so I put my headband on (you can get the same one from ASOS here, it will save you this Winter and it's only £6!!!)
The following morning we had one final walk around Boston...
Going home really wasn't on my list of things to do.
It was cool to see the the famous ground of Boston's baseball team.
The view was pretty good too.
The sun was out and I honestly just never wanted to leave Boston.
Sunglasses: C/O Sunglasses Shop / Jumper: Identical here, similar here / Skirt: Similar here / Coat: Identical here and here.
I didn't expect to fall in love with Boston as much as I did. But I fell hard and I fell fast.
Boston, I will be back soon, I promise.
