New England Boston - Acadia Day 2

Monday 29th July 2019
Up at 7.30am and had quick breakfast in the room Ben had cereal and we had breakfast bars and coffee. We were going to JFK Presidential library and museum which was not too far from our hotel. We decided to walk and it took about 10-15 minutes. Today was hot but we made it. We arrived as the museum opened at 9am. Adults were $14 and children free. Again it was included on our Go Boston card. Really great museum. Lots of interesting displays and artefacts. I love this period of History and teach a lot of it for GCSE so it was a great two hours. It turned out there was a free shuttle bus back to the T station so we got that.


We took the T to Fenway park. By this point we were starving so we got an early lunch at Wahlburgers. It was really good quality. Burgers for me and Chris and chicken tenders for the boys along with soft drinks and a couple of beers. I think it was about $50. Suitably satisfied we headed to Fenway park and booked on the 2pm tour. We are not Red Sox fans but enjoy baseball. My son is a Yankees fan. Anyway the tour was great. Our tour guide was fab. She told us the history of the stadium and the team and we got to see lots of parts of the stadium. I would highly recommend a visit. The entrance was part of the Go Boston card again.



The tour lasted 90 minutes. Afterwards we got the T back into Boston itself. We then went on a Harbour cruise from long wharf. The cruise was included with the card and lasted 45 minutes. The tour guide was really informative and told us lots of the history of Boston. We enjoyed the welcome breeze too.

We had promised the boys another dip in the Frog pond so after the cruise we headed back to Boston Common. On the way we walked past fountains full of children playing so we stopped, the boys changed into their swimming gear and spent 20 minutes having a great time. Unfortunately this meant by the time we reached the Frog pond it had shut. So they had a play at the playground instead.
We decided to have dinner in the Italian area again. It was very busy so we picked a restaurant and put our names down on their list. We waited 30 minutes then were seated. The menu was extensive and quite pricey, but the portions were enormous. Chris had a seafood pasta and I had chicken Alfredo and I didnít even put a dint in it. The boys had pizza. No picture Iím afraid.
We got doggy bags and got the T back to the hotel. Back at the hotel we packed up as we are heading to Ogunquit tomorrow. Another brilliant but exhausting day. 21,509 steps
