    Omg Boston in fall looks just perfect! Your pictures are really stunning!!! Hope I’ll be able to visit next fall. #WeekendWanderlust

      I’m glad you liked them! It just so happened that I was in Boston during the fall, but I really lucked out that I was there when the leaves were changing. Definitely made it picturesque!

  3. Great Post. We don’t live that far from Boston and we really need to get there someday. Definitely saving some of these suggestions for that trip. Love the videos. I’d pretty much watch any show that involved someone wearing a kilt. #WeekendWanderlust

      I’ve seen street performers in many cities, but I have to say, he was probably one of my favorite. I definitely recommend you go, especially if you can make a day trip out of it. If I lived closer to Boston, I would definitely be making more frequent trips there!

    Umm you had me at those fall colours!! How beaut. And that observatory has gorg views. Def want to visit Boston.

    I always go to Boston for layovers and it’s boring to just sit at the airport. I want to go back and do all of these things including Quincy Market! Thanks for sharing

    That is a good list of things to do in a day. I too enjoy walk along water bodies. The street performances captured so well.
    Loving the city from these glimpses.

    There is nothing like Boston in the fall! I love those autumn leaves!! Looks like you fit a lot of fun into 24 hours there. That knife juggler is impressive! 🙂

    There is enough to do for a day here. I like the Boston park and those autumn colors make it look so gorgeous. A walk around here would be so refreshing and it looks like a photographer’s paradise. Cheers

      A walk around Boston Common is most definitely a photographer’s paradise! I wish I’d had more time to talk around the park when I was there.

    Boston looks like a historic city in so many ways. And the shopping at Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market and beyond is certainly plentiful. It looks worthwhile to finish your day at that Skywalk Observatory – what a view of the city!

    • Kiyoko says:

      I agree, the observatory is a good way to end the day, or at least do in the evening. It’s so cool being there to city the city in the daylight and how it changes once the sun goes down!

    I had a 17 layover in Boston and really really wanted to visit the Boston Common. I know how beautiful it is, and basing on your pic, I would have totally enjoyed going there! I also wanted to visit Faneuil Hall for the historic value. Unfortunately, I didn’t know where I could store my baggage. Oh well.

    • Kiyoko says:

      That’s unfortunate that you weren’t able to visit the various areas! You’ll definitely have to make it there if you are ever in the area again!

    I am glad you got to visit a few spots on the Freedom Trail (Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market). I love how you can walk to all the historical sites in Boston and explore the start of the Revolutionary War.

    • Kiyoko says:

      I’m not a big history buff, but it was a little surreal visiting the different areas and knowing what importance it held in history.

  12. Suruchi says:

    The picture of colored leave trees and trail covered with fall leaves is just beautiful. Walking along the harbor & clicking lots of pictures is what we will enjoy. Boston city views from the skywalk observatory are amazing especially the night view. The Juggling knives performance looks scary and equally interesting. This is a great guide for spending a day in Boston.

    • Kiyoko says:

      Glad you like it! I definitely think the fall leaves was one of my favorite parts. I hadn’t expected to be able to enjoy the fall foliage in a big city like Boston.

  13. I was there this past august and september for work. I did all those things except for the skywalk. Boston is such a great town. Do you have any food recommendations? I didn’t really eat well since I was traveling alone.

    • Kiyoko says:

      I’m actually a SUPER picky eater. In general, there just aren’t many foods that I like. For that reason, I tend to shy away from food recommendations (that’s why you won’t see me mention food really anywhere on this blog). I’m sure there are tons of places with fantastic food in Boston. I’m just not the best person to be giving those recommendations. Sorry I can’t be of more help!

    This is a great way to hit the high spots in a day! Boston Common looks nice in the fall. We visited in summer and unfortunately, it was full of homeless. If you get back, go to the Black Rose Irish Pub. It’s just around the corner from Faneuil Hall. Rated the #1 Irish Pub in Boston. All of the staff are from Ireland. The food and service is amazing. Thanks for the helpful post and gorgeous photos.
