About Boston

Boston is a famous historical and cultural city on America's east coast. To learn more about America's history, follow the red brick road of the Freedom Trail from one historical point of interest to the next, making stops at the Paul Revere House and notable buildings. While in Boston, you can also tour the campuses of world-famous universities, such as Harvard and MIT. Cheer for your favorite team at Fenway Park or spend the afternoon lolling about in the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere of the harbor area or one of the many green city parks. Local foods like lobster and clam chowder are two dishes that should absolutely not be missed while in Boston.

Trip Moments

Kakakaka_Cappuccino   
Their beer is a recent love of the heart, and the choice of alcohol is also very rich, from beer to cocktails, to meet all taste buds. The atmosphere is the bar-style bar, the transparent glass wall, it is very bright, unlike other bars, the dark tone, prefer this bright and light bar style. At the center of the bar is a number of TV screens. The various ball games are played at the same time. The seats are facing the dock. When you look out, you will have a clear blue sky and a pleasant mood. beer beer has more than a dozen choices, so the clerk recommended a wave, Amway has two kinds of seasonal and blue moon, also received two small cups for us to taste, service five points Praise. I feel that the sense of seasonal will be better, the temperature is very low, and the taste is more refreshing. Spicy Tonyrita After a glass of beer, I didnt have a good time, so I added a cocktail and wanted a stronger taste. I ordered this, agave with lime juice and a slight taste. Sour, the taste is very summer. Little Red Scooter This taste is more like juice, the alcohol level should not be very high, the taste is not too much stimulation, cranberry, pomegranate and lemon juice are matched Together, the entrance is slightly sour, and then the various fruity notes slowly emerge. Fried fish and chips The outer layer is crispy, and the meat inside is also very tender. However, the French fries are pressed under the fried fish, and I feel that some of them are caught, which affects the taste. The salad is also good, it will make the taste more refreshing, and the white sauce is really delicious with the fried fish.
