Visit Boston in 2 days
Departure for Boston from Montreal
We rented a car in Montreal and here we are on the road for almost 5h30 under a superb sun and we even take the opportunity to make a small detour, just to cross the White Mountain National Forest. We go through customs at Stanstead which takes us a little less than an hour, we are lucky enough for the moment!
We arrive around 3:30 p.m. Everett. Airbnb and hotel prices are quite high in Boston, especially when it comes to booking at the last minute 😉 that’s why we chose to go a little bit out of the way. It is very easy to reach Boston from Everett. Many buses pass by there until late in the evening. There is a card for as many trips as you want, usable one day at US$12.75
The Raptors VS the Celtics at TD Garden
We took less than 40 minutes to get to the famous TD Garden. Many people dressed in the colors of the Celtics invaded the place! Green as far as the eye can see!
I love the atmosphere of basketball games, it’s always a great time to spend!
Boston, intensive visit without rushing too much 🙂
We favor what is furthest from us first. Direction Harvard ! I visited there almost 5 years ago. Must say that it had a whole different look under the snow. We stay there for an hour to take a good look at all these great historic buildings and touch the left foot of the supposed statue of John Harvard, it seems to bring good luck!
South End district
Then direction the South End district, Back bay metro station. As we like to walk, we decide to connect the different places to visit on foot. It’s super beautiful, we take full eyes!
Boston Public Garden
We walk around Copley Square, facing the Boston Public Libraryon rue Boylston then Clarenton to then go up on rue Tremont to Boston Public Garden.
Then discovery of the super beautiful district of Beacon Hill and its particularly photogenic streets (Mt Vermont, Acorn St.)
The Italian neighborhood of the North End is to visit in Boston
direction now the Italian neighborhood of the North End Passing by the Old State House and the Boston sign (whose location I didn’t note, sorry!) A little air of the New York village with the fire escape ladders descending on the facades of the red brick buildings.
Visit Boston via the Quincy Market
Finally, before the sun goes down (It’s always a little too early, 4:20 p.m., isn’t it?), a quick trip to Quincy Market who still decorated for the end of year celebrations! It’s super pretty 🙂
Return to Everett around 5:30 p.m. and on the way to Montreal!
Same impression as 5 years ago, how soothing Boston!!
