    Not sure if we have any MA/Boston people on here, but as I end my time in Boston tomorrow, I just wanted to say it's hands down my favorite US city I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. I'm already convincing BF that we should come back next summer as he's never been. The whole area is just very cool! I love history and literature, so it's perfect for me!

    I've never been there but would love to go sometime. Can you give some highlights of your trip?

    We did quite a bit!

    Aquarium was awesome. We got to see them feeding the Penguins. It's better than any aquarium I've been to, including Shedd, though they each have different animals.
    Whale watching cruise-we had a lot of great sightings!
    Six hours worth of walking tours-freedom trail, Harvard/Cambridge, and the North End/Little Italy.
    Bunker Hill and the USS Constitution
    Concord-Minute Men Monument and the Old Manse House (where Emerson's grandfather first lived and Emerson and eventually Hawthorne)
    Salem-very cool city.
    Duck tour-a lot of fun!

    We're heading to Newport now. I'll definitely be back as soon as I can!
