Boston is the Greatest City in the Universe, 2.0

Sharing is caring!

Hey guys! You all know I already think that Boston is the greatest city in the universe, as I gave 7 reasons in a blog post a ways back.  I present to you further evidence as such, by way of a photo essay.

Subtitle: An exercise in playing around with the various features of picmonkey.com.  Best website ever for editing photos! There’s a ton you can do (most of my graphics on my blog were made using picmonkey!), with lots of free options as well as premium features that they charge for.

First full day was a full day of rain. Because Boston is a rainy place!

So we embraced the wet and went on a duck boat tour!

Some say the T is a place of misery. I say it is a novelty to people living in suburbia, and 2 year old boys.

Museum of Science, in Cambridge! I would recommend for older kids, but we still all had a STEAM-y time.

Same view from our hotel room (Sheraton in Copley, I highly recommend!), but sans rain.

Boston Public Gahden. Where Bostonians would go to enjoy the novelty of the outdoors during the Industrial Revolution, according to our ConDUCKtor from our duck boat tour.

Lunch at Fanieul Hall. Baby hand cameo!

The center of Fanieul Hall, where you can fight people for seats to sit down and eat. All part of the fun 🙂

This was a requirement of mine: see the waterfront. So unbelievably beautiful.

 

Boston post, 2.0 www.theshortesttallman.com

I’m not great at the panoramic thing.

More waterfront pictures. The pic in the middle shows exactly where I would buy a second home, for probably well into 7 figures. Ha! And the picture on the right is some demo project, but it appears as though they are retaining a portion of one wall.

Trip down memory lane: BU! My dorm was a brownstone, my college was an old car dealership, and Marsh Chapel where I went to mass at 10pm.
