207/365 - Boston Sightseeing

Even though we visit Massachusetts frequently, the kids haven't spent much time in Boston. So we rode the Commuter Rail into South Station today to take in some of the sights of my favorite city.

We started at the Prudential Center where we signed up to take a Duck Tour of the city, including the Muddy Charles River.

But first we had a very Boston-like lunch - pizza you can't get in Illinois and some great Clam "Chowda"

After the Duck tour, we met back up with Zach, Matty, Ray and Teresa at Faneuil Hall, perhaps the most touristy place in Boston, but heck, we've been doing the touristy thing all day long. We watched the street performers, bought some Boston souvenirs and made the kids pose for some pictures:

We walked back to South Station along the new Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, starting along the Wharf, traversing the Wharf District and Dewey Square District Parks. Some of the sculpture along the Greenway is interesting.

Light rain and mist kept us cool, and we just avoided the steady rain that started once we entered South Station for our return trip out of the city.

Scott and I decided the next time we visit, we'll go back into Boston and walk the Freedom Trail (but without the kids - they would just be bored!)
