Boston Day Trip

Yupp, I’ve never been to Boston! My boyfriend is a big Boston sports fan and has been to the city tons of times, so it was exciting to do a small day trip and explore with him!

Places we ate:

  • Pavement Coffeehouse
    Well I forgot I wasn’t in NJ anymore and got a bagel here which was a big thumbs down along with their prices and mediocre coffee
  • Union Oyster House
    YUM! Despite the fact that this place was built for ants, their food is amazingggg and well worth the trip.

Places we went:

  • Buffalo Exchange
    I’ve seen so many ads about this secondhand store lately. While I was waiting to sell my clothes, I browsed what they had and wasn’t too impressed. My boyfriend found a good shirt and jacket, but they didn’t buy anything from me.
  • Paul Revere’s House
    We didn’t go inside, but it was nice to walk the Freedom trail for a bit!
  • Quincy Market
    Cute little place to stop for a quick bite or little doodads.

I’m looking forward to doing more Boston exploring since we live so close now, but it was nice to get a little day trip under the belt! Do you have any suggestions as to what we should do the next time we’re in Boston!?

Day Trip To Storm King

Sometimes making the most out of your weekends means driving 4 hours on a rainy day.

Last weekend I went to Storm King Art Center which is located in New Windsor, NY. It’s a sculpture garden that features different installations over 500 acres. It was an absolutely stunning and vast place. The sculptures and installations felt larger than life and you kind of just felt like you were in the little piece of the world not many people know about.

It has been more than fifty years after its founding and Storm King continues to grow and evolve. It is among the world’s leading sculpture parks.

We managed to walk through most of the land, but a rainy day held us back and we ended up giving up and heading to a yummy Mexican place less than 10 minutes from the center (it was called Avocado and I highly recommend).

While Storm King closes in just a few short weeks, it’s something I definitely recommend putting on your to-do list if you live on the East Coast – or if you plan on visiting soon! I’m sure it’s even more beautiful in spring and summer!
