Boston, what a beautiful city!! Every time I go, I always fall more in love with their parks, food, places, architecture and people. I had the opportunity of going there at the beginning of November and I had a wonderful time. Here are some advices on what to do and what to consider if you're planning on going to Boston anytime soon.
Be careful with the weather! Before my trip I asked my cousin about the weather. She's been living there for around two years and of course she's really used to the cold weather. Me, coming from "the sunny state" being in the 60 can be freaking freezing. I did have some leather jackets with me but it was not enough. So make sure you actually check the weather online before packing.
Have a "cupcake stop" Georgetown cupcakes are known worldwide because of its great taste! I can assure that are the best cupcakes I have ever tried in my life. Don't go to Boston without trying them, I swear you won't regret!! My favorites were the one with coconut, red velvet and cookies and cream.
Be ready to walk, a lot. There are too many places you should go while you're visiting Boston and most of them required a lot of walking, which is great! You must take long walks around Newbury Street, Boston Common, The Public Park, Boston Harbor, Museums, etc. Boston is easy to navigate on foot, as its major sights are relatively close, and America's first subway system connects its important neighborhoods. So take with you the most comfortable shoes you have and be ready to burn some calories.
Don't forget to visit the historic places. No other city in America holds as much history of the colonial and Revolutionary War era as Boston. Start your city tour on the Freedom Trail, which will lead you to landmarks like the Paul Revere House and Boston Common. Or, discover Beantown's artsy side at the Museum of Fine Arts and its fashion sense along Newbury Street. If you're a fan of baseball, you can't miss the Fenway Park, home to the Red Sox. Though blowing through your travel fund is an easy thing to do in Boston, there are also plenty of things to do that won't cost you a penny; Boston Public Garden and the Faneuil Hall Marketplace can be experienced without you ever having to open your wallet.
If you like going out and grab a drink have a back up ID. This is just a personal advice. Everywhere you go, take with you a back up ID like license from another place, passport, etc. They will always ask for that no matter how old you look.
Share every adventure with the people you love. I think that the key for having an unforgettable trip is sharing every moment with great people, people you love and you care about. For this trip, I went with my family to celebrate my cousin's 20th bday and we had a blast! It couldn't get any better.
