Bevor wir heute Nachmittag unser Miet-Vehikel ausleihen spazierten wir noch etwas durch die City.
Vorbei am Hafen und dem Hayemarket ging es zum Fenway Park. Im dortigen Stadion bei den "Red Socks" hätte es Baseball zu sehen gegeben, wir hatten jedoch keine Tickets und auch keine Zeit weil schon was anderes vor.
Im Boston Common trafen wir dann auf ein bunt gemischtes, demonstrierendes und umherkrakehlendes Völkchen aus Trump-Sympathisanten und -Gegnern. Blieb aber soweit alles friedlich.
Flugs dann unser 🚗 abholen gefahren, wobei wir sogleich auch ein gratis-Upgrade auf die nächst höhere Klasse für lau bekamen. Ein Dank an Hertz.
Nun noch fix unsere Koffer und Sachen aus der Wohnung abgeholt auf gehts in Richtung Cape Cod.Read more
Having spent 20 hours traveling we have finally arrived in Boston, tired and hungry but glad to finally be here.
The rep from Travelsphere was not at the airport to meet us, so after 45 mins I rang the emergency number in the UK to see what was going on. Unfortunately an accident in the tunnel to the airport had delayed him so we were told to take a taxi to the hotel and they would reimburse us.
Once at the hotel we were given a room only to find some cases already in it. After complaining we were upgraded to a larger room.
So time from a quick shower and then out on the town to find something to eat before hitting the sack.
We found an Irish bar which served food, Hazel opted for fish & chips (typical Brit) and I went for a burger.Read more
Der Independence Day in den USA ist an Spektakel und Show kaum zu überbieten. Die Amis feiern ihr Land wie kein zweites auf der Welt. Abgefahrene Kostüme in Stars und Stripes, gemeinsames Singen der Nationalhymne mit der Hand auf dem Herz, Kanonenschüsse, Flugzeugshow, Konzerte und natürlich ein ausgiebiges Feuerwerk, bei dem sogar die Buchstaben USA in die Luft geschossen werden, gehören alles zur Feier. Wir hätten uns für diese Show auch keinen besseren Ort als Boston aussuchen können. Es war wirklich toll, dass einmal miterlebt zu haben.Read more

Boston is such a walkable city. Today, up through the town, across Boston Common, along Newbury Street (Boston’s answer to 5th Avenue) and more exploring through the streets on our way bank to Quincy Quincy Market for a bit of entertainment, a christmas tree light show and dinner in the market.
Newbury Street is a very pleasant window shopping experience. Beautifully renovate old brownstone buildings have retail stores in the basement and ground floor levels and are described as being shabby chic to elegant, affordable to exclusive. The exclusive and perhaps bohemian style shops are at the end closest to the Boston Gardens.
It was a great shame that we arrived a little late for the great band that was playing outside the Quincy Market. We caught the final songs. They were very high energy and had the whole crowd rocking.
We caught a few more Christmas lights on our wall home.Read more
Arrived early evening into Boston and, after locating the hotel, went for a first walk through the city. We touched upon some of the freedom trail and saw the State House before bumbling through China Town and the Theatre District. This morning, 'breakfast' in Panera consisted of bagels and a double chocolate fudge brownie...which was just outstanding! Hoping to tour the State House and the Freedom trail today, among the myriad of things going on in Boston on a weekend.Read more
