We decided to go to Boston for the end of our spring break this last week. We needed to get out of Ithaca and have some new scenery, plus it was our one year anniversary! Our good friends Ben and Lexie came too. We had a great time and I must say it was a trip to remember. We started off in Salem, Massachusetts and went to the Salem witch museum and learned about how witches were prosecuted for the Salem witch trials. That was interesting because there were a bunch of girls who had nothing better to do than to go around pretending to be possessed and accusing people of practicing witchcraft and then the accused ended up getting hanged. Pretty sick huh?
We had lunch at "Cilantro", the best Mexican Resturant we've had in a while. You can't find authetic mexican food in Ithaca. We went to "The Tomb", which was an interactive Egyptian adventure where you have to figure out with your group how to decode riddles and challenges presented by the Pharaoh by using all your wits. That was really fun, I enjoyed it, and I recommend it if you ever go to Boston. We walked on the Freedom Trail, had lunch at Cheers, where everyone knows your name, but that was a lie cause no one knew our names; what a joke...... We went through Paul Revere's house, went to the U.S.S. Constitution museum, and saw the naval ships in the Harbor. We then had dinner in Little Italy where everyone looked like they were related in the restaurant, toured Harvard, and went to the Boston Temple for pictures. We walked around Fenway Park where Babe Ruth and Ted Williams played. It was cool because everything was still authentic looking, and we wish we could have gone to a game. That would have been awesome. Well, I could safely say by the end of the trip that both Lexie and I were set on moving to Boston. It's a beautiful city with so much to do, and eat, and there is great shopping as well. Unfortunately, we weren't able to do much shopping considering the fact that we are still poor college students. Here are some pictures of our trip. Hope you enjoy them.
