Three years ago, I spent an absolutely amazing weekend with my best girlfriends in Boston. We traveled there from all over the country to see our friend Emily and celebrate Independence Day in one of the most patriotic cities in the country.
We walked the freedom trail, one of America's first historic walking tours, which stops at 16 historical sites including Boston Common, Massachusetts State House, Old State House, Fanueuil Hall and Bunker Hill Monument. We watched as a man dressed in a colonial uniform read the Declaration of Independence from the balcony of the Old State House, and then enjoyed part of the parade marching through the streets of downtown. We visited some old ale houses and took in the view from the top of the Pru (Prudential Building). The whole trip culminated with an incredible fireworks show over the Charles River – which I wrote about in yesterday's post – complete with stunning pyrotechnics and memorable music. One of the best Fourth of July holidays I've ever had.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from that trip. If you want to hear more about it, check out my previous blog post about Boston.
