Boston Has Beaches Too

Dear Reader, Most Boston-based tourism is centrally located in the downtown area and the immediate surroundings. But, as you can imagine, Boston, like most other cities, has much more to see than the easy-to-reach hotspots. On this day, I undertook an adventure starting from a sandy city beach, stretching along a causeway with spectacular water... Continue Reading →

Sunny in Salem (Part 2)

Dear Reader, As far as tourism goes, Salem, MA is kind of underrated. I say “kind of” because it is highly praised for witchy-Halloween travel, but passed over as a vacation spot during other times of the year. Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting Salem during its “off season” (aka NOT Halloween) and still... Continue Reading →

Sunny in Salem (Part 1)

Dear Reader, There are very few Halloween vacation destinations that rival Salem, MA. But is Salem worth the visit during other times of the year? Over the course of two posts, I will give you a small peak into my mid-May Salem adventure. In a spur of the moment decision, influenced by a beautiful weather... Continue Reading →

What to say about Chelsea

Dear Reader, You can learn a lot about an area through Google Maps; so much, in fact, that you can fool yourself into believing that you really know a place. However, my recent trip to Chelsea, MA taught me that you need to actually visit an area to know what it’s really like. While I... Continue Reading →

It’s a Beautiful Day in Boston

Dear Reader, April is the real beginning of spring here in Boston, but we still get (more than) our fair share of undesirable weather. For this reason, when we get a day that is 75 degrees, sunny, and over the weekend, we celebrate it. The subway cars were congested, the lawns were speckled with bodies,... Continue Reading →

Boston’s Oldest Neighborhood

Dear Reader, I blog about Boston a lot and there’s a reason for that — it’s awesome. Literally, though, Boston is a great big city, so there’s a lot to blog about. The Boston metropolitan area has over 4.6 million residents (the city itself has about 693,000 people) and comprises 23 neighborhoods. On this day,... Continue Reading →

All Along the Orange Line — Part 2

Traveling along Boston’s Orange Line (subway), one will traverse the cities of Malden and Medford and be granted access to the Boston neighborhoods of Charlestown, the North End, the West End, Downtown, Chinatown, the South End, and Jamaica Plain. Furthermore, stops along the Orange... Continue Reading →

All Along the Orange Line — Part 1

Dear Reader, Boston’s public transportation system is one of the best in the country. It is ranked number 3 in the country just after New York City and San Francisco by US News and number 2 by Business Insider just after Seattle. One thing I love about the “T” (aka the “Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority”)... Continue Reading →

Where Have All the Tourists Gone? Part 2

Dear Reader, Martha’s Vineyard could be a foodie’s paradise. Recently, my boyfriend and I made a trip to Martha’s Vineyard for vacation (more here). While the island is a hub for tourists in the summer months, things are pretty much left to the locals in the dead of winter. Regardless, we enjoyed exploring all the... Continue Reading →

Where Have All the Tourists Gone? Part 1

Dear Reader, Martha’s Vineyard is a May to October destination. Between these months the temperature is warm, the restaurants and cafes are open, and the tourists are everywhere. Today, in December, the island is much, much quieter. So, as a tourist on Martha’s Vineyard in the winter, what is there to do anyway? On my... Continue Reading →
