Back to Boston

Today’s post follows our Julie as she returned to her old stomping grounds, Boston! Enjoy the first installment of our new travel section of MRG, as we visit lots of incredible places. 


Something you may not know about me is that I used to live in Boston, for 4 years. It is, hands down, my absolute favorite city in the country. There’s something so unique about it. I love that you can easily drive or walk anywhere, there are charming, quaint parts right within the city, but also a downtown feel in different areas. I used to live in NYC, as well, and I hate to say it, but that city caused me anxiety. Boston doesn’t, though. There is something so easy and manageable about Beantown, and I absolutely adore it.

I just got back earlier this week from 5 days up in Boston. I was there for various book events/signings and to visit some friends. It was an incredible trip, and I realized I hadn’t been there in just about 4 years! So much has stayed the same, but I noticed a lot has changed, as well.

Below you’ll find some new (to me) spots that have come to Boston, specifically the famous Newbury Street, since I lived there a while back (make sure to click on each of them to find out more about about the brands). If you haven’t been to ‘Red Sox Nation,’ how Bostonians refer to their town, (I’m actually a Yankees fan, though, shhh…), I urge you to go! It’s simply the best.
