    Awesome list girl and perfect timing! I'll be up in CT next month for my cousin's wedding, and hoping to make a day trip into Boston. If I get up there, Sam Adams Brewery, the Duck Tour, and the Freedom Trail are all on my list 😀

    Love this list! The Museum of Science and the Boston Children’s Museum were always two of my favorites. I’ll have to check out some of these events and get to the Sam Adams Brewery ASAP!
