Boston for a Day…

So a couple of friends and I decided to do a trip to Boston for the day.  We got a great deal (cheap cheap) through Porter Airlines and off we went to spend the day taking in the sites of Boston.  How great is that?

Started with a very early flight out of Toronto (6:50 am) where we encountered Madeline, our flight attendant who smothered us in food treats and wine (yes we realized it was 7:00 am but when you are going to Boston for the day you take advantage of every opportunity 😉 ). “I call it the Breakfast of Champions” (The juice was wine and cranberry/orange). By the end of the flight we were hugging Madeline goodbye with the pilot asking “what went on back there?”



Kims cousin Jason picked us up at the airport and took us to where he works (Reebok).  They call it a campus – it is something out of a TV documentary….I would love to work there!  Huge gym with a full size basketball court right in the middle. He took us around and the highlight (for me anyway) was a trip into the Reebok store where we got everything for 50% off! I scored running shoes and little black booties (Rockport).


Then it was off to lunch at a pub downtown after which we needed to walk off the heavy food we ate.


We walked all afternoon and ended up sitting by the water/marina to give our feet a rest.  Then it was back into the main part of downtown and onto the shuttle to the airport at about 4:30. Caught our flight home at 6:30 and got into my house by 9:30.  What a whirlwind day!  I can’t stop smiling about it every time I think about it 🙂

  1. Haha! “Breakfast of Champions”! Sounds like a winner! I have only been to Boston temporarily and would love to go back. I absolutely love to travel! Sounds like you had a great time.

  2. I am so jealous! This sounds like way more fun than is legally allowable in a day. It has been years since I have visited Boston. Now I want to go back ASAP!

    • It’s a great city – one I had only driven through. Was great to spend the day walking it and seeing the sites. People were really helpful too. We were standing looking at a map when out of the blue, a city employee who was there for tourists came over to help us with directions.
