Boston!  My husband and I took our first trip together to bean town.  As New Yorkers, we have this perception that all the nearby cities are boring and not worth going to.  (How can you compare to New York?) And I had been told by others that Boston was boring.  Now after going, I don’t think so!

I was really surprised to see how much culture there is in Boston!  New York is simply dominated by lots of subcultures, but there’s not a lot of American culture to it.  In Boston, there are lots of bars, taverns, restaurants where you could sit & eat outside.

There were so many other things that we wanted to see & do in Boston, but yet we didn’t have time, for it was only for a weekend.  Then again, there’s always next time!
