Last of Boston pics

I have so many Boston pictures to post, but I am going to wrap it up with this post!  Our favorite thing we did in Boston was when we did the Freedom Trail.  We bought a booklet and walked it ourselves.  It actually took us most of the day because we stopped and read everything we could and each site!  

This is the New Boston State House.  The dome on top is covered with 23 K gold leaf!  Seems a little extravagant to me, but it's pretty!  

Park Street Church

Paul Revere

Sam Adams

We stopped mid morning and mid tour at the Omni Parker House Hotel and ate some Boston Creme Pie.  This hotel is where the pie and the parker house roll originated!

 Hands down this is both of our favorite thing about Boston.  This is the Old State House. This was at the center of the American Revolution--debates, Boston Massacre, Declaration of Independence was read from the balcony on the back--just cool!

Faneuil Hall

Paul Revere's house

Bunker Hill Monument--we climbed all 294 steps and we were rewarded with gorgeous views of the city!

 And later that night we happened upon the BEST restaurant!  It is Panza in the North End.  We actually went twice--I know, terrible!  But it was SOOO good!  This is the appetizer--fried tomato capresse salad!  Yes, I will do my best to recreate!

And while we were so close, we had to visit Mike's Pastry and see what all the fuss was about!

One day for lunch we went to this spot that was obviously a locals favorite.  It was on the harbor and there were lots of men in suits!  We were told to get the lobster roll!  We had not had any lobster and we figured we should try.  Well, what we were told was that a lobster roll was just lobster and mayo--yuck!  We took one bite each of this $16 sandwich and threw it in the trash!

I had learned on the duck tour that this was the first public library so I wanted to go in and look!  What a surprise! It is BEAUTIFUL!!!!  I still can't get over the fact that this is a LIBRARY and not a museum in Paris!
