Wow, I accompliashed a goal without even thinking about it! Boston was so incredibly beautiful during the Labor day weekend, although it is a very busy weekend for college students moving in. Still, it was great hanging out with friends and at times trekking the city alone. Everything is easily accessible by foot or subway. I recommend buying duck tour tickets online 5 days ahead of time. Also check out www.photowalks.com to improve your amateur photography skills. Contrary to popular belief, I did not find Bostonians to be rude or snobby. As a Californian, I admired the classic brick architecture, and the Boston Public Garden is a refreshing haven from the narrow city streets. Wow, I have so many recommendations that would make this entry way too long!
