Family Fun in Boston: Day Four

Garcia Family just got back from a week long vacation in Boston! We did so much while we were there! So much so we "need a vacation from our vacation"!

I love sharing our family vacations with all of you in hopes you too will visit the fun places we've been too!

Since we did so much in Boston, I'll be posting each day of our vacation separately so check back each day for my latest post on our vacation fun!

Day One: Harvard, Tufts, and Feneuil Marketplace
Day Two: Freedom Trail
Day Three: Gloucester and Salem

A trip to isn't complete without a trip to the Boston Tea Party! Day four started with a time travel back to the event that started the American Revolution. The Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum was an interactive experience, giving each tour group roles to play in the events leading up to the Boston Tea Party. 





There was a town hall meeting to plan the tea party, a experience on a ship and actually tossing tea over board, a tour of a replica of the ships with a view into the crew's quarters and captain's cabin, as well as two awesome holographic displays taking us back into history. We also saw one of only two remaining Boston Tea Party Tea Chests! 






We enjoyed some tea at Abigail's Tea Room also!




We also stopped by Boston's Fire Fighter Museum where the boys got to experience a journey through firefighting history. 







One of my bucket list items is to see all the Presidential museums in the United States so we had to visit the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.  I enjoy reading how the First Lady plays an integral part of the president's role. Whether she participates politically, hosts diplomats from other countries, or advocates for causes she believes in, all the while being a dutiful wife and mother, is a great inspiration to me. 







Seafood was on the menu again for dinner! We headed to the waterfront to Yankee Lobster Fish Market which was featured on Food Network! I had a yummy fried "lobsta" roll and the best lobster bisque I've ever had! It had huge chunks of lobster in it! Delish! 



We ended our night on a stoll with window shopping around Newbury Street and some dessert at Georgetown Cupcakes. I'm a self proclaimed cupcake connoisseur so I had to stop by one of the cupcakeries made famous by reality TV. I thought Georgetown Cupcakes was only available on the east coast, but the menu I picked up said they have a location in LA, boo! Anyways, Garcia Family all enjoyed our cupcakes!
