Two weeks ago, I celebrated my nine year anniversary of living in Boston. Each year I celebrated that as an accomplishment because I moved from a small town, on my own, with no financial help. Plenty of emotional support along the way though – (thanks, Mom!), but since then – I’ve pretty much been on my own.
Boston is one of the most picturesque cities in the United States. It’s charming, quaint, clean and has stories woven throughout from the historical events that have taken place here. It’s no wonder that it’s consistently rated one of the top cities in America to visit by Travel & Leisure.

When I visit a new city I like to experience it like the locals do. Rarely do I opt to visit/experience a tourist attraction, frankly because I know it’s just that! I’d much rather walk like the locals, talk like the locals and play like the locals – it’s way more fun.
A couple weeks ago I was talking to my friend Michele about how much I wanted to do a “staycation”. You know, where you pretend you’re on a mini vacation by renting a hotel room and hitting the town like a tourist in your own city. Seriously, how fun!?
