Boston has been on our list of places to visit for awhile. At the beginning of Oct we made a long weekend trip up there and our friends Chris and Carla met us there from NY! I found a nice 1B/1Ba condo with pullout couch on VRBO for the 4 of us to rent that was close to a couple different subway lines and seemed like a nice area... and it was! It was in the South End area close to Back Bay and Prudential T lines. My college friend Mary Ellen now lives in Boston and gave us some suggestions for our trip.

We took a taxi to the condo because it was raining cats and dogs. Eric and I had an adventurous walk to the grocery store once we arrived and were soaked by the time we got there. Thankfully that first night we all ate pizza at this place that was.. no lie directly across from the condo. It was yummy and I was so hungry I think that made it even better. Obviously I took this picture the next day.
Saturday we went for breakfast at a place Chris had been to before called Flour. It was packed and to me that is always a sign it will be good. I had a scone and Eric had the french toast - we recommend those! It was a really gorgeous sunny blue sky cool but not too cool kind of day and so we set out for lots of sightseeing. First we took the T over to Harvard.
The campus was really pretty with brick and stone buildings and mature trees not to mention the fact that you are thinking wow this is really Harvard! We then decided to pretend to be students in an unlocked classroom :) I recommend a subway ride over to Harvard if you are in Boston.

Sunday we walked from our condo to Boston Public Gardens and Boston Commons- it was closer than taking a subway there. It was chillier and cloudy that day but I guess every day can't be like that sunny day we had on Saturday.
