Happy Wednesday, loves! Can’t believe it’s mid-week already! Only half a week of winter break left for me :( But hey, that’s okay–I’ve definitely spent my time wisely. For the long weekend, I finally got the chance to visit the historic town of Boston!
Day 1: Cambridge Area
I ended up staying at the Hyatt in Cambridge, right next to the Charles River–absolutely breathtaking views of the city skyline.
Walking around town, I couldn’t help but visit some of the university campuses. I never did college visits as a senior in high school, so I guess I’m about 3 years too late, haha. It was interesting to visit MIT and Harvard…but I still don’t think I would trade my experience at NYU for anything in the world.
Wound up at Legal Seafood for dinner the first night! Apparently, it’s a must-have if any of you are ever in the Boston area. I ended up with the seafood casserole (mm baked cheesy goodness) and my boyfriend opted for their shrimp pasta dish. Have never felt so stuffed and content after a meal…
But of course…always room for dessert! I’m really upset to learn that Finale Desserts is a local restaurant in Boston. It is the most adorable little dessert restaurant, perfect for cute dates! So many different cakes to try…so little time!
Day 2: Downtown Boston
It ended up being a bit gloomy/rainy on our second day in Boston, but thank GOD it was warmer! I actually think I prefer the gloomy weather if it means I don’t turn into a human ice popsicle when I step outside >.<We crossed the Charles River and ended up exploring a bit of BU. It was interesting walking around BU because I think it’s set up in a very similar way to NYU–right in the heart of the city, with buildings integrated right into Boston. There isn’t a true campus either, but that’s never really bothered me at NYU–the city becomes your campus instead.
Exploring BU in the gloomy weather means bundling up and wearing comfy shoes! I opted for my favorite wool coat, bundled up in my warmest cashmere scarf and grabbed my go-to black distressed skinny jeans. As for shoes, I went with a pair of tasseled tartan print loafers–comfy and fun!
