Boston

2011-06-05 1

One of the most beautiful cities in the world, and very different from what I expected.

Actually, I expected a lot of New England charm with lots of city filth and stench. But Boston is different: friendly and quiet neighborhoods around the center, a student-tourist Cambridge and an unexpectedly nice and clean downtown. Boston has me hooked. It is much more European-like than other states in the U.S. It also has a wide range of restaurants. Top Italian restaurants can be easily found as they seem to almost be more common than American burger stalls. Nevertheless, the “American feeling” is not lacking. The big malls are simply magical and the skyline is breathtaking. The entire city can be easily explored on foot. If you’re interested on getting a bird’s eye view, you can visit the observation deck of the Prudential Tower. Admission is not cheap, but the view is really amazing and worth every dollar. A city tour by “Duck Tour” is also very cool: ride on amphibious vehicles across the city, first on the road and then on water.

For super nice beach courses, Cape Cod is worth a visit, it is accessible by car in 1-2 hours. Everything is pretty expensive there, but the wide sandy beach is beautiful. If you are adventurous, take a car trip up the coast to the north. This is a very pretty fishing village and here, you can eat all the delicious lobsters you want! :-P
