Boston: Day One

It’s been three years since I’ve visited Boston, and the last time we drive through as part of a longer road trip; this time we’ve giving this charming place five days of our undivided attention.
The flight was short and got us here at 11am. After dropping off our bags we headed to the Parish Cafe, whose menu boasts sandwiches created by famous chefs; a very clever concept and good start to our week.

After a short stroll through our Back Bay neighbourhood we checked into The Lenox Hotel to find we’d been upgraded to a corner room with a wood burning fireplace. Chocolates, champagne and all kinds of wonderful touches make this the best hotel we’ve ever stayed at.

Our evening saw the beginning of my goal to eat local lobster at every possible meal; an incredible seafood dinner at Neptune Oyster.

The evening’s entertainment (watching the Raptors try to take on the Celtics) was disappointing because we lost so badly; however, it was fun to feel a part of Boston’s love of sport.

We redeemed our evening back at the hotel with cocktails at City Bar, a classic dark and sexy hotel bar and a great end to day one.
