Weekending | Being Touristy

Happy Monday friends!! What a whirlwind weekend - I'm pretty sure my feet are in a permanent state of "please don't walk anymore," but my heart is so full because I spent the weekend having an amazing time with one of my best friends! 

Rachel & Mike came to visit us on a whim and I'm so happy because leave it to us to figure out on this trip that we have been best friends for 10 years - that's a whole lot of laughs, inside jokes & crazy stories and this weekend was no exception! Warning...photo & food overload ahead!
We started the weekend the only way I know how - with sushi at our favorite place! Gary & I joked that we're like family to the owners at this point since we're there so often and they saw it first hand with the special roll they created for us! We rarely go out on Friday's, but when in Rome (or I should say when your friends come to town) you go out - so we capped the evening off with a few drinks at Hops N' Scotch
I've given the "this is Boston" tour more than a few times already and I wanted to treat Mike and Rachel to new things for all of us, but don't worry I still snuck in all the important sights! 
This meant starting with a tour of Fenway Park! I've been to my fair share of Red Sox games and sat in almost every section of the park, but I've never been on the tour and I knew it would be something different for us to do! 


We learned about the history, sat in the most expensive seats in the park & even made our way to the press box! Of course we picked a peak weekend, but the tickets are usually $18 which is a great price for a little over an hour of touring! For as long as I've lived in Boston - I've never done this so it was nice to check this off the Boston Bucket list! 
I think we can all agree that it wouldn't be a visit to Boston or for that matter a visit with me, if we didn't have at least one lobster roll. I selfishly wanted to taste out a new place and took them to Luke's Lobster. Over the last few months people have been raving about the food and for good reason - top 2 lobster roll's I've had in Boston! They have a small menu - which to me means they have perfected their menu items. Seating is limited in their Back Bay location, but it was so worth the trip! Gary and I already vowed to go back! 
We walked everywhere - over 11.5 miles in one day and on one of the hottest days no less, but I was able to highlight all the beautiful spots!
Getting a reservation on a Saturday night in the Seaport is tough...especially when you try to get one the night before, so we opted for an oldie, but goodie - Rosa Mexicano. Some of the best fish tacos & Mexican street corn I've ever had! 
After dinner we headed over to Committee to meet up with friends, which turned into making our way to Legal Harborside, where we went a little overboard with boomerang and making fun videos!   

Don't mind the constant shine around us...we'll just pretend that's the highlight not the sweat it most likely was...
When you cover so much ground on Saturday - you have the luxury of taking it easy on the sight seeing on Sunday, so you start with brunch! I chose Masa in the South End - it's somewhere I've been a few times, but not in over 3 years and it was amazing!! My favorite compliment of the weekend was that I didn't steer anyone wrong with my restaurant choices - I might start a food tour here! There's not doubt that Rachel & Mike left the city completely satiated!
We all didn't want the weekend to end, but that just means more trips are in order!! One of the best weekends this Summer! How was your weekend? Link up below to share it with us!

  28. I love playing tourist in my hometown, especially when you get to show your bestie around town in the process! When we were in Boston we did the Fenway Park tour, and even though I'm not a baseball super fan, it was so awesome to learn all about the history of the oldest ball park in America! Y'all definitely had a fun weekend, and ate so well too!

I'm sure you were the best host/guide, you know all the spots to dine and hang! I'm glad you were able to catch up with your friend, beautiful! I hope you have the most amazing week ahead and thank so much for sharing!

  53. What a seriously fun weekend with your bestie! I love that the sushi place you guys love made you your own special rolls-- that's so cool & they look so pretty! You have to tell me your favorite kinds since you don't like raw fish either & I'm feeling like I might want to try some eventually, haha. The Fenway tour looks so cool- I wish we would have done that when we were there but added it to my list for next time for sure :) We have a rosa here and we went a few years ago with my mom and had the best tacos (maybe ever)- so your picture makes me want to go back!

  62. The ballpark tour idea was BRILLIANT! I took my brother and his wife on one when I lived in Cleveland (that is where I am originally from).....we had a BLAST! It was so much fun to go "behind the scenes" As always the food looked amazing (particularly the lobster!!) You all look marvelous!! catchatwithcarenandcody

  69. Bestie time is seriously the best especially when you have a fun city to ecplore like Boston. Good to know about the tour of Fenway Park. My husband definitely wants to go to a ballgame when we finally make it there together but learning the history and such would be fun too! One cannot visit Boston and not have a Lobsta roll! Ok, unless you have a seafood allergy but that's definitely a must on my list.
