Top Favorite Things To Do In Boston!

                I know, you thought I was finished with Boston but this is the last of these posts before we move on to other things on this blog as this week is the finishing of the trip. I told you guys there is ton of content to cover on that trip but look forward to new posts as we continue on with the podcast this summer. Anyways here is the top things on my trip:

1) Boston Tea Party- Was interesting learning about Paul Revere and the Boston Tea Party and got to be interactive with the Boston Tea Party and threw tea over the edge of the boat so that was really cool. It answered ton of questions I had in my head about Paul Revere as I heard about it days before so that really helped.

2) Salem- Learning about individuals accused of being witches. The live demonstration of how it happened, it was very interesting and the fact I was able to maneuver around to see the presentation. It was very educational and that is the reason I went on this trip is to learn some history on Boston and the surrounding area.

3) Cheers- Yes this was the actual set they filmed the television show, Cheers on TV back in the day and I got an opportunity to watch an episode and its on my list of shows to watch now as I really enjoyed episode # 1 of the first season but it neat to be there and I got a beer glass that says Cheers Boston on it and I am only going to use it when I have a beer which I will be joining my dad for one this week. 

4) Constitution and Cassin- Was really cool to actually tour a Naval boat both of em. I thought I would only gone down one level but nope went down to two levels which was cool. Then seeing a naval ship that was in the second world war against the Germans and also the Japanese at the first start when the attack on Pearl Harbor.

5) Finally on my list is Fenway Park, now you're probably going to wonder why isn't this higher in the ranks but there is no particular order really but Fenway Park I got a lot more respect for the team as before I was never a fan of Boston Red Sox but got a ton more respect for em touring. As I said in a previous post last week, I was on the Green Monstah, got to see the press box but if you wanna know more to go back to that post 

             There is the post for today, in conclusion of talking about this trip, this was my one of my favorite trip out of the one I went to. I learned a lot on this trip and it was an educational trip and it will definitely be a memorable trip to remember honestly. It was a long trip but worth all 7 days of this trip and probably will never end up in a big city again as it was a frustrating time with one way roads and the lack of signs in the city to turn off here or go here but I enjoyed it.

Boston Trip Day 3, 4 & 5

          First of all on our first day of the trip, we got onto the Trolley tour and took a tour around the city to get to know Boston and it's history. We went all the way to where the Constitution and the Commie was sitting.  We actually took a tour of it which was a free as nothing is cheap when traveling but in the end it is well worth it though! Took ton of pictures and showing you guys on on the right hand side of this blog tonight since I am truly late posting this up as I had to be somewhere today. Anyways we also continued on that journey and we also saw TD Gardens where the Bruins Hockey team and Celtics Basketball team played. Now obviously I am not a fan of the Bruins, nor the Celtics as I am more a Leafs fan and also a Raptors Fan. We also looked at the Boston Tea Party which I will get to it in this post. We also went to Tasty's for dinner which a food review is coming tomorrow actually. 

              Now the 4th day consisted us looking for Fenway Park for 3 hours and we finally did find it and we also got an upgrade and got the tour on that Monday not that Tuesday which was the next day. I got to go on top of the Green Monstah as they say it in Boston, got to go to the Media booth which had a great view of the field. Also got to see the one seat where a ball flew and hit a gentleman and is also the longest ball in the park to this very date.  I have along with my dad a lot more respect for the Bo Sox which is the short form of saying Boston Red Sox. Also saw the bats from players who hit those amazing home runs with as well and we got a package with the pictures that was taken while we were there. Finally on the 4th Day we got to go to Cheers which was the original set of the TV show back in the day with Ted Danson and we had dinner and of course I had a beer in a very cool mug which you can find on my Instagram. 

                The final day I would like to cover is the trip to Salem Massachusetts an learning about the witches and the history of the people who were falsely accused of being witches and sadly were either hung or put into a jail cell. Also we did stop at a beach on the way to Salem and I found Sea shells which I did bring back about 3 or 4 of them and to give my niece and nephew one each and keep the rest for myself. I have some from PEI and now some from the East Coast in the USA. Now there was two parts to the museum: 1 the story about people being accused of being witches and what happened to them, then a walking tour of the different types of witches, good and evil like we see in the Wizard of Oz. Also while getting lost in the city of Boston, we saw Boston University, MIT, Harvard University so we got to see where the universities were by accident. Finally we got to have a look at the history of the Boston Tea party and learned the entire history and yes we got to throw some Tea overboard as well. It was a very interesting story and it really tied things up with Paul Revere whom we learned about when we were on the trolley tour on Day 3 of the trip. Anyways that is tonight's post, tomorrow is the Tasty's food review and Sunday will be the final part of the Boston trip. Still got a pile of reviews to come every second day so stay on the lookout for that as I got together a ton of blogging content while I was gone, trip wise and non trip wise as well!
