Boston to Cape Cod

Boston to Cape Cod

Hi there friends!  How was our weekend?  Mine was pretty great!  The weekend started off in Boston and if you have only a short time in Boston, there are two things you must do!  First, visit the Boston Commons and second, visit Fenway Park.  Both are equally classic Boston but for different reasons. 

Boston Commons is to Boston what Central Park is to NYC, except it is so much prettier!

See what I mean?

Boston is known for its superfans.  Every single sports team has a great following but nothing beats the summer tradition of cheering for the Red Sox at Fenway Park.

fenway 3 Seriously, the seats may be old but the charm isn’t.  The energy in Red Sox Nation is unparalleled.  A few years ago we went to Yankee Stadium (to watch Red Sox versus Yankees, let’s be clear) and the enthusiasm for the home team just isn’t the same as in good old Beantown.

If you are in Boston, I recommend the W Hotel.  It’s actually a relatively new hotel.  It was being built when I first started law school, so not that old!  If you do book into the W, make sure you request the Cool Corner Room.  Panoramic views of the city plus an awesome tub in the room.  It’s one of the coolest rooms I’ve ever stayed in–no pun intended!

The W recently teamed up with yogibrity, Tara Stiles to create on-demand, in-room yoga sessions.  There’s a sequence for whatever mood your in from jet lagged to gearing up for a night out.

Just a short hour from the W Hotel in downtown Boston, led me to this:

Kayaking on Cape Cod.  It was a seriously beautiful day with flat calm waters and just the right amount of sun.  I think we ended up kayaking for about two hours!

And even some overcast skies can’t bring me down on a weekend in July.  We headed out for some mini golf and I actually won!  I couldn’t believe it.  It was a close game though!

    Loving the bump!!! I’ve been to Boston many times but I’ve never been to Fenway! I’ll be there next month and may need to change that!

    I can’t get over how cute you look preggo! Seriously! 🙂

    I’ve been to Boston before, but never really took the time to take in the sites. I think this may be a great idea for a quickie weekend getaway.

    I love that they have in-room yoga. What a great idea.

    I have only been to Boston once, but we went whale watching which was amazing.

    I was in Boston this past winter but seeing these summer pics really makes me want to go back asap. I LOVE the idea of on-demand, in-room yoga sessions at hotels – how cool!!

    As a die hard yankee fan it would be SO difficult for me to step foot in FENWAY unless it was a yankee game 🙂 With that said, can you believe that I have never been to Boston?! crazy!! Thank you for the guide though, the pictures are so beautiful!

    I LOVE and miss Boston so much!!! We used to live about 50 minutes away, so we went there often. All of your pictures are so beautiful and I miss FENWAY! You are such a cute pregnant lady too. You look fabulous!

    Been there? Oh YES! I graduated from Boston University and my cousin now works for the Red Sox so we get LOTS of Boston around here. If it weren’t for the proximity to my parents and aunt here in CT to help with the kids, my husband and I would move there immediately. I seriously love Boston so, so much AND I’m doing an overnight with my best friend this weekend and can.not.wait.
    PS – You look adorable in your bathing suit. Your belly is too cute!!!

    Looks like so much fun!! I haven’t been to Boston in probably 10 years and would love to get there the next time I’m on the East coast.

    Oh my gosh, you look so lovely with your baby bump in that bathing suit! So cute. 🙂 I would love to visit Boston, but I don’t think it’s in the cards this year. One day!

    Boston Strong!! You highlighted many spectacular sites. One question: Is your baby a Red Sox or a Yankees fan? Silly question: Go Sox!!
