Last week, I had the chance to visit Boston and New York for both professional and personal reasons. The whole week of traveling was intense, tiring, and I felt overstimulated the entire time. I am so glad to be back and I have some awesome tips on what to eat in Boston and New York for you all!
I was in Boston for a conference, so while I didn’t have too much time to explore, I did have just one day to cover as much ground as I could: I started at the Boston Convention Center and walked along the pier, visited Boston Common, Chinatown, and the North End. I tasted something from every place, and everything was simply delicious. Boston is known for its seafood (clam chowder, crab, etc), and even though I didn’t try any of that, I still felt so satisfied, and you’ll see why in the pictures below. Also, I got super lucky because the weather was perfect: high 60s to low 70s, and plenty of sunshine. Here’s what I tried in Boston and where you too should go if you ever visit:
On Thursday night, I took the Amtrak to New York. As we all know, New York is gastronomical paradise. Since I was visiting New York for personal reasons, I made sure to thoroughly research all the places I had heard of from friends/wanted to visit (a spreadsheet was made). Looking back, one weekend is not enough in New York. The city is huge and I can’t imagine how much I left untouched. My friend and I explored Central Park, Times Square (which we hated; way too many people), Soho, 5th Avenue (shopping!), and went out at night in West Village and the Lower East Side. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it all! Take a look:
