boston bucket list

Wanderlust Wednesday-Week 9
I've mentioned our boston bucket list many times, but never got around to sharing it. With husband being in boston for school, we're not sure how long this time here will last. For now, we're thankful to be in this amazing city with a history that America was built on. We have access to a world class symphony, art museums, and the best seafood. And with places like martha's vineyard and cape cod just a ferry ride away, boston is classic new england. I love sharing the best of boston through our eyes, so feel free to click on any of the items we've checked off our list to see more.

 At this point we're closer to finishing our list than not and it's a little bittersweet. I'm thankful that we've managed to visit much of iconic boston, but I will be sad when when everything is crossed off this list, since it's our go to when looking for something new to do. Thankfully, we are still finding things to add.
