I have spent 21 Thanksgiving weekends in Massachusetts with family, though I can't remember the last time we explored the city of Boston just a few minutes away. It is a strange but nice feeling to realize how quickly my cousins and I have grown. What was once a weekend of DIY board games has become college talks over brunch at the blink of an eye. We finally spent this past weekend traveling through different areas of the city, with my favorite stop being the historic neighborhood of Beacon Hill.
These photos were taken on Acorn Street, a narrow cobblestone pathway lined with quaint townhouses that had once been inhabited by carriage coachmen. It is often referred to as the most photographed street in America, and rightfully so. With an unrefined road surface and autumnal decor lining the brick walls, this path is a testament to the beautiful simplicity of an earlier time.
Other areas we visited included the famous Faneuil Hall and of course, an afternoon pick-me-up at Blackbird Donuts. Despite the consistent gloom in the sky on Saturday, we had the best time discovering these little stops that have always been just minutes away. At this rate, I cannot wait to see where each new Thanksgiving takes us. Let me know how you spent this past week in the comments below!
