Boston Museums and Freedom Trail - Tuesday, July 14, 2009
Again, the kids and I woke up and went to breakfast at the Dunkin Donuts in the Prudential Centre. We had the same meal as we are definitely creatures of habit. We couldn't decide what to do and we really didn't want to take another tour, but going on a trolley tour would allow us the flexibility to get on and off at points of interest. The children wanted to go to the Aquarium and Children's Museum so Al dropped us off at the Museum before he started work for the day.
We were there so long and they enjoyed it so much, we didn't have time for the Aquarium. In the afternoon, we took a cab back to the Boston Common Visitor Center for our walking tour of the Freedom Trail. We were the only four people on the tour. It was a nice and informative tour. Our guide was an older gentlemen who was soft-spoken and knowledgeable. He was very kind and patient with our overly excited children. After the tour we had dinner at Mama Anna's restaurant in the Italian area of the city right by Paul Revere's house and then drove around Charlestown and to the Bunker Hill Monument. We went to bed relatively early (around 11:30 p.m.) because we are all exhausted.
