It was the perfect place to soak in the surrounding sites, as well. We got on the freedom trail and discovered the historic North end by foot thanks to the perfectly placed so everyone can see red line in brick and painted on the historic walkways of Boston!
I won't go into detail for you because I really think that everyone should walk this trail for themselves but what I will say was I was very surprised to find that in the midst of all that wonderful history was Little Italy! Being Italian myself I was very proud to see such a beautiful and large Italian community thriving there. It was the perfect stop for lunch and we had such a yummy Italian panini.
The next day the weather wasn't the greatest so I decided we would check out Salem. I figured the dark and dreary weather would only add to it's appeal and our overall experience. I was right! Salem also had a walk and we followed it by foot and trolley.
The locals were great too. Very nice people in Salem and in Boston also! We were taking the subway and the first time no where that I could see did it list the price for a fare so I asked someone. Well not only did he tell me what it was but he wanted to pay my way lol I had to insist that that wasn't necessary and thank him kindly for his help. We were lucky and got to spend a week there and enjoyed the Salem seaside in summer like weather too. It was perfect and I do plan on going back. Cape Bacala, er... I mean Cape Cod which is another part I want to visit too. I love coastal areas so much.
All in all it was a great time and I feel blessed to have experienced the beautiful US of A again! So very glad that Canada has such a wonderful and amazing neighbor!
Thanks for taking the time to read this :)
