Boston is a lovely city and has so many memories from the colonial era. It is a good place to live because you can find everything in the city like good education, business centers, historical buildings, waterfront, and a four-season climate. We spent one day in Boston and visited important touristic places in the city. Additionally, Aysegul had a chance to reach out to her old friend from her medical school and had dinner together.

It was a cloudy and rainy day in Boston, unfortunately. We began our day by visiting Harvard and MIT campuses. After that, we arrived at the Boston Common and found a street parking place near the field. Our first stop was the Public Garden to see “Make Way for Ducklings“. Make Way for Ducklings is a children’s picture book written and illustrated by Robert McCloskey. First published in 1941, the book tells the story of a pair of mallards who raise their brood of ducklings on an island in the lagoon in Boston Public Garden. Elif and I read the story 6 months ago and really liked it. Therefore, we would like to see the story place in Boston. So, the Public Garden is a nice green place to feel nature and pet the squirrels. They can eat pistachio from your hands. However, please be careful, because they are a little aggressive.

After the Public Garden, we followed the Freedom Trail. The Trail is a 2.5-mile-long (4.0 km) path through downtown Boston, Massachusetts, that passes by 16 locations significant to the history of the United States. You can easily follow the path because it is marked largely with brick on the pedestrian street. We liked the historical buildings and downtown of the city.

We completed the freedom trail, when we arrived at Faneuil Hall Marketplace. It is a place with so many restaurants and shops. We ate seafood at one of those fancy restaurants and left Boston at night.
