So, we arrived at another big city (I’m not loving big cities at this point with a gigantic RV). We actually stayed about an hour away from Boston. This way we could drive into Boston, but also take day trips to nearby places. Of course, in large cities, it’s difficult to find RV parks anywhere by the city, anyway (case in point).
We bought a “Go Card” (again) which allows you to do 41 different activities in a 5 day period – you can do as many as you want, but you only have 5 days. We did this back in LA and depending on your energy level and the activities you were already planning on doing, this CAN save you money. PS I’ve become an affiliate for them because I like it so much you can totally buy your own card HERE and I’ll get a little commission)
So we did several historic tours in Boston, went whale watching (saw 2 different whales and were told it was the best trip of the season), went to a really “Caleb oriented” Comic book shop at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, did the hop-on-hop-off bus tour (the tour operator got to know us and thought I was amazing – yep, I am) and I actually think the kids learned some things. The best part was having all the tour guides give the lectures, because anytime the kids can hear it from somewhere else (and also not just read it), that’s a plus.
We also took a day trip to Salem, and another daytrip to Plymouth (and subsequently a day at the Beach in Cape Cod), saw some friends, and had ANOTHER day trip to Maine.
We ate cannolis in Boston, clam chowder at Cape Cod, and lobster in Maine. We saw whales, lighthouses, friends, and a lot of history.
So what was my take away for this week? Well, a few things…one, our wifi at our campground was awful (although otherwise, I really liked this campground) so again, we went to McDonalds for the wifi. While we were there, I ate some of the girls fries. My daughter was enraged and I told her it was the “Mom tax”. She said she would throw all the fries into the ocean! Ahhh maybe she’s learning something?
For educational reasons, I like places like this, so rich in history, but again, it’s the PEOPLE that make this trip the best, specifically people I know and visit, but hey, also random tour operators who hear our story and talk with me about it are cool, too. Even at McDonalds, some random lady told us she was eavesdropping and thought we were awesome.
We Had to wake up really early for five days in a row. We Were in downtown Boston for the first two days. We Went to Paul Revere’s House, Apparently there’s stamps in there. (I am confusion.)
We Went on a fun trolly ride. We Got off at the OLD state house, it was a museum Luckily Zoe was the only one who was a girl for the museum. A Very old man asked wear we were from Mom said Denver He said I have no idea what that is.
We Also went to Salem It was creepy when we went to a show but interesting. After the show we listened to what witches were saying the first one was back then. The Second one was what we think of witches now green faced. It was creepy at first when the evil witch talked, it was the most creepy laugh I have ever heard in my life. I also left my tablet in the gift shop and a miracle happened!!!!!!! Nobody stole it!
I keep on hitting my head on walls. My head is going to fall off.
Yesterday I visted my friend and…. can’t really remember much. we had ice cream
