Babysitting to Boston

I am a traveling day dreamer. Yes, I know this is a horrible habit for someone my age to have but I can't help it. I think that it originally stems from travel envy, when I see photos from trips that friends or family have taken and hear their stories I tend to add that particular place to my "Must travel to one day" list. Not all of my dream destinations are international though and this article that I read this morning about Boston has moved Boston up on the list of U.S. cities to see.

I have wanted to travel to Boston for a while now (Yes, the history nerd rides again...Paul Revere joke, anybody? No? Ok...) and articles like the one mentioned above make it all the more encouraging for people traveling on a budget, like, yours truly. In addition to seeing Lexington, Concord, and Salem, I would also like to visit Harvard. I know Harvard is technically in Cambridge, MA but this is definitely something I think I could make into an all day trip. My father's father, "Pa" went to law school here after his time in the service in WWII and I would like to be able to at least spend a day or so in a place that impacted his life and career, and mine in turn. And not to mention it is beautiful...

It even looks like smart people go here, not me obviously.

Hey, I know you!

Sorry Wofford, this beats Burwell.
So, until I can make the trek in person I will save up my babysitting pennies and one day I will get to see all of the Revolutionary War history Boston has to offer, get witchy in Salem, and pretend like I am a student at Harvard; nothing too impossible to dream. Thanks for reading!

  1. I just went to Boston and it was amazing. Unfortunately, it was raining on the day we planned to visit Harvard so I just got to see the campus from the car. It was beautiful though! A trip to Boston is worth every babysitting penny! :)
