The 48 hours I spent in Boston
were incredible. It is a beautiful city that's super walkable and has so much to do; with quaint architecture, vibrant atmosphere and legendary sweet treats, I couldn't recommend Boston more for a city break! The Old Town Trolley tour I went on was a wonderful way of getting to know all the different areas of this historic place. And whilst there are parts of Boston that allude to it's hundreds-of-years-old history, there are also some more modern sights to see. I got to visit the bar from the sitcom Cheers, which was amazing to see in person after seeing it on TV! And then I headed to the legendary home of the Red Sox baseball team, Fenway Park. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to catch a game here, but I did manage to have a tour around, and wow! The atmosphere here on game days must be incredible!
Then I was off to the Big Apple to experience all that New York City
has to offer. Everyone knows the icons of NYC, so I was so excited to see them all. Little Island Park near Chelsea Market was a brilliant location to go sightseeing during the day and of course I had to catch a Broadway show - a night-time show of Moulin Rouge more than lived up to expectations. I still can't get over just how big Grand Central Station really is in person, seeing how wide and tall the main concourse is was just mind blowing! And I would highly recommend Summit One Vanderbilt which is a new viewing experience in the city looking across all the skyscrapers and seeing for miles and miles in every direction.
Throughout my trip I got to stay in some absolutely incredible Marriott International Luxury Brand Hotels, which kept me close to the bustling scenes and sights but also provided the perfect place to relax and put my feet up after so much exploring. I would definitely recommend The Times Square EDITION,
which is so stunning - every convenience of being in the heart of NYC paired with a feeling of being worlds away from any of the commotion once inside. Amongst another of New York's world-famous sites is The Ritz-Carlton New York Central Park,
which was recently redesigned with a wealth of urban charm. Needless to say, each of these hotels are packed full of the utmost luxury and are all dictionary definitions of city break perfection.
