Boston Sites

We are road tripping it! We started in Newport, RI for work and over to Chatham, Massachusett and now we are seeing the Boston sites. After witnessing the history first hand, I have decided historical virtual reality is a must for school-age children. If anyone chooses to invent this, please call it the “Wendy project,” haha. 

If you follow me on Instagram On the road with Wendy, you will notice Wally, and I walk a lot. With a plethora of historical locations, I recommend picking up a map for the historic 2.5 miles Freedom Trail walk. A couple of must-sees of mine are The New England Holocaust Memorial in downtown and the Old North Church.

The story told by historians at the Church: Families purchased boxes if they wanted to worship at this Church. If a person did not own one, they would be unable to attend church services. Today, all are welcome to worship. The Signal of the lanterns of Paul Revere displayed at this church and has been an “active Congregation for nearly 300 years. 

The New England Holocaust Memorial located on Congress Street and inspired by a group of Holocaust survivors living in the Boston area. The Memorial was so emotional and moving I was unable to take many photos. It’s best to experience and reflect in person. 

For food lovers, our good friend Cora Holbrook, a Mortgage consultant at Wells Fargo, invited us to a beautiful lunch at the Top of the Hub in the Prudential building.  This restaurant was my favorite dining experience in Boston. The cuisine is extraordinary; the views are breathtaking, and service impeccable. 

 

I don’t typically post food as I feel I could not do it justice, but I felt my foodie friends would love seeing the deliciousness. 

 

We cannot leave Boston without seeing Gillette Stadium and Fenway Park. If you are going to the football stadium allow for enough time, it is further away from town.

Being a book nerd, I was thrilled to view this fantastic stone Libary (seen below) on the property of Adams National Historic Park. Beginning with John Adams in 1768 the spectacular library has over 12,000 volumes.  

 There is not enough space to add all the photos I took in Boston, let me know if you have any questions in the comment section below.
