Ever have a plan that didn’t come to fruition? Upsetting for sure, disappointing even. That’s what this weekend was for us. We had every intention to head up to North Conway, New Hampshire this weekend. And right up until the day before, we thought it was a sure thing. Then life got in the way—the money we’d saved for the trip, hotel, food, and adventures went to a car repair and a refill of the oil tank that keeps our apartment warm. Boom, just like that NoCo had to wait. But instead of sulking around the apartment all weekend, we decided to use the last bit of money we had saved for a small, one-night staycation in our very own homebase, with the mission of heading to our favorite spots to take photos while staying in a district of the city that we rarely explore, Boston’s Theater District.
The morning started off on the Cambridge side of the Charles River, on Memorial Drive. We parked our car in a free, four-hour lot and walked along the river, taking pictures of the skyline of our favorite city. After that, we hopped back in our car, headed to the top of the Museum of Science parking garage to snap some more photos from a different perspective. Eventually, we made our way to The Godfrey Hotel, where a room that we booked for a discounted rate on HotelTonight waited for us. At that point, we galavanted all over the city, strolling around the Common and Public Garden, and eventually ending up at the Skywalk at the top of the Prudential Center, one of Boston’s tallest buildings. Seeing the city from this height can give you pride, and warm your soul. Take a scroll through the photos below at each of these locations — what do you think? What do you all like to do on your staycations?
