Back in July we took a road trip through New England, first stopping in Hershey, Pennsylvania (yeah, I know that Pennsylvania isn’t New England, but hey – chocolate) and then driving through upstate New York and Vermont to Maine, with a final stop in Boston before heading back to DC. Despite living on the East Coast for ten years, this was my first time in Boston. And once we arrived in Boston, what was our first stop? The Samuel Adams Brewery, of course.
The tour was great, and I’m not just saying that because they provide you with a ton of free beer and a tasting glass to take home (OK, maybe I am).
The highlight, though, was seeing the Red Sox play the Texas Rangers at Fenway Park. I can now cross that ballpark off my list.
I had a great time in Boston (and the best clam chowder in my entire life) but I don’t think I could live there as it just gets too damn cold in the winter! If you live in DC, though, I would highly recommend a road trip up there. Boston flights out of National are pretty cheap, too, so if you don’t have the time to drive, that is another good option.
