I am officially in Boston now and I could not be happier! It is so much quieter and cleaner and just all around better than New York City. It’s honestly my favorite city ever…well maybe besides Hawaii. I hope you enjoyed my New York City posts. Make sure you check back for all my Boston posts!
This post is going to be rather short because it was more of a travel day than anything. We woke up in New York City and went to the gym. I try and go to the gym as much as possible when I’m on vacation because I don’t want to get out of routine. After the gym, we packed up our bags and headed to Penn Station (the train station). The train ride to Boston is only 3.5 hours… so not bad at all. We were supposed to get off at Back Bay and I told my mom that. I kept showing her the freaking map and she kept saying that I was wrong and that we’re supposed to get off at the last stop. She was wrong and I was right…just had to point that out.
We didn’t do too much for the rest of the day. We check into the hotel and unpacked our bags. We stay at the Westin Copley in Boston. I love this hotel because it’s connected to two malls: Copley Square and the Prudential Center. I can go shopping without even leaving the building haha!
We walked over to the Prudential Center and shopped around a bit. We basically just went into the same stores as usual: Vineyard Vines, Lululemon, Madewell, etc. We didn’t buy anything. We met my dad at Eataly aka the best place ever! I highly recommend going to any Eataly if you get the chance. We all split a margarita pizza and got our own pappardelle pasta! SO FREAKING GOOD!
After dinner, we went into the Canada Goose store. My dad has been obsessed with this company for so long now and my mom thought she’d finally get him a jacket just to stop the obsession plus it was his birthday the next day. I actually like the jacket he chose. It’s pretty cool!
At this point, I was really craving a Cannoli. I just ate really authentic Italian food, so I had to end it with an authentic Italian dessert right? I also had never had a Cannoli and just really wanted to try one. I got a ricotta Cannoli with pistachios. It wasn’t as good as I thought it would be and I don’t think I’d get one again. Sad 🙁
Well that was pretty much all we did on the first day of Boston. Kind of uneventful, but Eataly was amazing per usual! Check back for Day 2 in Boston.
