This is it! The final leg of our trip. We had quite the adventure through Rhode Island on our way to Boston. Newport is rather unbelievable if you ask me! We explored the "Cliff Walk" and viewed the "Newport Cottages," which are not cottages at all. They are castles or mansions, whichever you prefer. Will and I love admiring architecture and homes, so this was perfect for us! Not to mention we love being outside in perfect, 70 degree weather. (Who doesn't?)
We then made it to Boston - the city that I adore! We have never been there before, and it was so wonderful experiencing it for the first time together. In my opinion, it's a cleaner, friendlier, more historical version of New York. Maybe that's a stretch? Either way, I loved it. The Ivy growing on the buildings, the rich history, the harbor, I even enjoyed riding the "T" so much more than the Subway in New York. It was so much fun.
My favorite memories from Boston include:
- Exploring John's customized Freedom Trail
- Running on the Esplanade
- Exploring Harvard (and buying my smarty-pants Harvard Shirt)
- Eating at Giacamo's. Delicious!
- Walking in the Boston Public Garden
- Touring the home of John Adams
Above: Stone walls were everywhere in New England. This photo is one of my favorites because it represents New England so well with a big beautiful tree and a stone wall!

Burdick's Hot Chocolate! It's kindof ridiculous.
