Where I stayed
Once we were full we headed back up to Boston Common (one block up) and signed up for the "Ye Olde Boston Tour", a walking tour of the Freedom Trail and Downtown Boston. The tour didn't start for about 45 min. so we walked along Beacon street up to Cheers. This, was of course, made famous by the 80's TV show by the same name. We didn't go into the bar but took a few pictures outside. We visited the gift shop, picked up a trinket or two, and headed to the meeting place for the walking tour.
We walked around Faneuil Hall & Quincy Market for a bit and headed back to Boston Common. There we picked up the bus and rode that back to a stop 3 blocks from our hotel. We needed a break and time to recoup before our nighttime tour, Ghosts & Gravestones Fright-seeing Tour.
We left the hotel and boarded the bus. We went back into the Quincy Market for a little dinner before the tour. Unfortunately, most of the food places were closed and we ate at Missy K's, a bar that had a decent menu. We made our way to the Ghosts & Gravestones tour ready to capture some ghosts on film. The tour was great and the guide, Anthraxicon, was a great story teller. We heard many stories of hunting's in the Boston area and got to go into 2 cemeteries, at night! This was another great tour and we still need to review all of our pictures to see what we captured. I had my video camera and the guide had a little fun with that. You'll have to watch the video after I get back to see what he did.
The tour ended at 10:30PM and we headed back to the room for the night. It was a busy day!
