This past weekend we went to the Roaring Twenties Lawn Party at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate. The party was organized by Boston Swing Central. We went with friends and brought along our own picnic. If you haven’t been to the Crane Estate yet, GO! Castle Hill on the 2,100 acre Crane Estate is located on Boston’s North Shore in Ipswich, MA.
Whenever I come across an awesome vintage / antique place to shop, part of me wants to shout about it from the rooftops, and the other part of me wants to keep it all to myself to keep the crowds away.
Some famous, some not. Some popular, some random. Here are some of my favorite things to do in Downtown Boston.
Rockport, Massachusetts is one of my happy places. I spent a lot of time here in my college days, grabbing coffee with girlfriends, brunch with my parents, and dates with my then-boyfriend-now-husband.
Although I was in choir for a number of years, took a few piano lessons, and had a summer fling with the flute, I have little-to-no musical capability. But that’s not to say I don’t love music! Doesn’t everyone love music?
Last year, I went to see the Boston Symphony Orchestra for the first time and it was a beautiful experience listening to the musicians and admiring Symphony Hall. Did you know that Symphony Hall in Boston is one of the world’s most acoustically perfect music venues?
My very first autumn in Boston started with a bang. It was the infamous moment with the bloody sock and a broken curse and the Red Sox had finally won the World Series. Utter chaos ensued and I wondered on to what mysterious planet I had fallen on.
Now that we have our second year of cross-country skiing under our belt, I can say with 100% confidence that we love cross-country skiing! I grew up x-c skiing in gym class (that’s upstate New York for you) but hadn’t picked it up as an adult until last year. Having a winter activity makes brutally cold weekends so much more fun!
