A Day in Boston



I had the day off from work so I decided to take a trip into Boston.



The weather was perfect. Actually it started out a little cool and very windy but otherwise a spectacular Autumn day.



The Public Garden looked beautiful. Everyone was out enjoying the sunshine, eating lunch and lounging on the grass.



I met my friend Kim at the Four Seasons Hotel. While I waited for her, I took a little tour of the hotel. The view of the Public Garden was lovely.



This staircase was so grand. I wonder what celebrities have walked down these stairs? This is where the famous stay when they are in town.



Another view from the staircase.



The floor of the lobby was so shiny. The autumnal arrangement was colorful and tasteful.



We had lunch at Finale's. Soup and a half sandwich and of course the finale was dessert. So many to choose from.




We walked off dessert by touring Marlborough and Newbury Streets. One of the dogs was definitely a charmer and quite the girl watcher!



So many pretty windowboxes.




And iron gates, gorgeous lanterns.



Wonderful plantings.



Fantastic doorways.



Lovely entrances all along the street.



A scene on Newbury St.



I love his beret.



Had we not already eaten, we probably would have had lunch at Tealuxe. I was intrigued by a sign for chaider, a cinnamon chai drink steeped in apple cider.
Perfect for a windy day in Boston.



I loved window shopping on Newbury Street. Newbury Street is known for it's
pricey stores. I only spent money on public transportation and food and I didn't give in to my shopaholic tendencies. That means there's money left over for another vacation day...maybe next week?

Oh, I loved this post!! That's the exact area where I have spent so much time these past few years. My daughter lived on Marlborough Street last year and it is just the most beautiful area! And my other daughter works on Newbury Street. What a perfect day you had for your day trip to Boston! Thanks for sharing it!... Donna

Thanks for the tour. I've never been to Boston. Well, I have - you know just the airport/car rental route to head north to Maine. The area you visited today is absolutely charming. Must remember it for next time. Have a great weekend. Sally

I love, love, love Boston. It is my favorite city in the US. I felt as if I was with you as you strolled along. I need to visit there again someday.
