Our own BOFCreative Account Coordinator, Tatum, recently went on a Northeastern adventure and is giving us her thoughts on Boston, New York and Philly. Keep reading!
Stop 1 - Boston:
Boston is packed with historical sites. Everywhere you looked, there was bits and pieces of our American history. Visiting Harvard was no different, being the first university in the United States (founded in 1636). We explored the campus, looked at the extraordinary buildings with gorgeous architecture, and stumbled upon the Harvard Natural History Museum. They have preserved an obscene amount of fossils, animals, insects, and plants, it’s unbelievable. The staff was beyond helpful, hosting mini-lessons about the dinosaurs and other prehistoric creature they have preserved. I highly recommend visiting this Ivy League University, if not for it’s incredible history, but for this well done museum nestled into their campus.
Stop 2 - New York:
You don’t need me to tell you how much energy and beauty New York City has to offer, so I’ll just say some of my most memorable spots on the trip. Riverside Park was beyond gorgeous. We strolled through the park around sunset, got a beer at a pop-up brewery, and then dined on the water at Grand Banks. You can enjoy fresh seafood while literally on the water in a beautifully decorated boat. The next night, we went to a comedy show at The Stand, where we first ate incredible food (for a really good price) then laughed ’til we cried in the main comedy room. There were special guests throughout the show, included Jim freaking Gaffigan! 10 out of 10 would recommend.
Stop 3 - Philadelphia:
You maybe caught the “history” theme of this trip, and it ended with a high note in Philly. With sites like the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Betsy Ross’ home, and many more, everywhere you turn you will find something exciting about our country’s past. The Philadelphia Museum of Art was unbelievably beautiful, and there were so many famous pieces by some of the world’s greatest artists. Van Gogh, Monet, Dali, Warhol… I could go on. Aside from the history, Philadelphia’s food was some of the best on the trip! I recommend getting brunch at Mission Taqueria. Get the green juice margarita, and thank me later.
