If you’re looking for somewhere affordable and fun to visit, consider Holidays to Boston.
Boston is one of those cities that truly has something for everyone in the family. It’s easy to get around and you don’t have to spend a lot of money in order to have a good time. In fact, much of it is free, including the arts, such as visiting Harvard University and their incredibly mesmerizing bookstore, walk along Newbury Street where you can visit many intriguing galleries and pop into the beautiful Boston Public Library.
Beacon Hill is a historic area, lined with cobblestone streets that you can stroll with ease. And make sure you put good food on your daily itinerary. You can visit Faneuil Hall Marketplace that offers 17 restaurants and 40 pushcarts in which to find great food. Do a little shopping too while you’re there as well!
If you’re a sports fan, visiting Fenway Park is probably going to be high on your to-do list. Don’t forget Harvard has a stadium as well and TD Garden is New England’s Premier Sports and Entertainment Arena.
And while I can recommend a number of sites to visit, simply look up and around – the architecture is stunning. There is a wonderful blend of old and new buildings that should not go unnoticed.
Sigh. I told you there was a ton to do!
I’m a modern gal, so when I travel I like to stay in places that reflect my style.
No doilies and rocking chairs, thank you very much.
Recently, in checking out hotels in London city centre, I came across some lovely finds that are just perfect for the girl who needs a little more than just a place to rest her head.
The Plaza on the River Club and Residence is a swank affair and located on the banks of the River Thames “opposite the Tate Britain art gallery, close to London’s Waterloo station and just a short walk from Westminster and Vauxhall underground stations.”
It also happens to have an en suite bathroom with heated floors and you can call up for a massage or go down to the hotel’s gym to help reduce some of your stress.
The Capital is perfect if shopping is part of your itinerary. Located in the heart of Knightsbridge, you’re just a short walk away from Harrods and Harvey Nichols. And the rooms have been individually designed so that you get a one-of-a-kind experience.
Not only that, the fabrics chosen for the room are from the Ralph Lauren Collection.
Talk about luxury!
And you must visit the Metropolitan (Old Park Lane 19). For the food alone! Breakfast is served in the dazzling White Room and Nobu is open for lunch and dinner.
I know. Decisions, decisions!
Okay, so I couldn’t help it. I finally caved and started a food site because not only am I reviewing restaurants and writing about food for a living, but I’m spending much of my “free” time cooking, shopping for ingredients and basically thinking about what I’m going to make next.
So I hope you’ll follow me and my little adventure here. I will not be posting pictures of everything I make step-by-step, or what I eat at every meal or anything like that. But I will be sharing TMI – what I bought, what I made, what I read.
I figure if I’m thinking about this stuff, someone out there must be too. I can’t be the only one questioning whether next time I make lime chicken I should finish it with grains of paradise or pepitas and well, I’m too embarrassed to say how much I think about this stuff.
You’ll find out soon enough…
Thanks for joining me on this ride. I am excited.
Now that the warmer weather has arrived and the sun is shining, it’s time to shed the old skin.
the knack gets a new fresh look.
