Trip taken: July 4th – 10th, 2018.
Another trip, another wedding! This time we explored Boston, Plymouth, and Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
Our first day in Boston was Independence Day so we had dinner at Atlantic Fish Co and then headed over to the Esplanade to watch fireworks. Although not very successful in finding places to sit down (or watch the fireworks, we were stuck behind trees), but still got to be part of the thrill. Day 2 of exploring Boston started in Boston’s Chinatown, Tina took us to eat dim sum at Empire Garden Dim Sum which is inside an old opera house. We walked to Faneuil Hall and Little Italy afterwards and took a stroll along the waterfront. It was so hot that day.
Boston Public Gardens was so beautiful. I could chill there and read a book for a good chunk of the day. We found the bench that Matt Damon and Robin Williams sat on for the movie “Good Will Hunting”.
Took pictures on Acorn Street in Beacon Hill area, which I researched to find that it is one of the last places to still have actual cobblestones as paving material. It certainly was very picturesque. Below pictures kinda capture our relationship in a nutshell, lol!
Boston Public Library is kinda exactly what you see in the movies! Loved it! Finished the day off with a beautiful sunset on the Esplanade.
Headed down to Plymouth for the Bridal Lunch and the rehearsal dinner. Checked out Plymouth Rock, which is smaller than I imagined, and met the rest of Tina’s bridal party over lunch!
Rehearsal dinner was an amazing clambake! Much fancier that the southern crawfish boils we have. So much delicious and fresh seafood!
Wedding time! Held at the White Cliffs Country Club! Weather was perfect! So happy to see my best friend marrying the man of her dreams! 🙂 Always so amazed at her ability to do anything on her own.
Spent the day exploring parts of Cape Cod after the wedding, starting off with Provincetown! Apparently, it was Bear Week so it was very interesting to people watch. Inside the Provincetown Public Library is a half-scale model of a 1905 schooner! A ship… inside a library!
After we were done walking around Provincetown, we wanted to go to Coast Guard beach in Eastham, but parking there was limited and you’d have to take a shuttle. So we opted to just go for a local beach near our Airbnb in Barnstable, Millway Beach. It was nice and quiet with less people and crowds so I’m happy with that.
Loved exploring Boston! Can’t wait to visit again! The beaches here are so beautiful, I didn’t want to leave at all.
Until next time!
Here’s a video I made of the trip! Enjoy! 🙂
