Boston, you're my home...

The best of luck to all of this year's Boston Marathon participants!

I hope you enjoy the beautiful city of Boston...


during your stay here in Massachusetts!


I've had many opportunities to enjoy this beautiful city (with a daughter attending college here)...

Beautiful Back Bay, Boston....

So enjoy yourselves and make the most of your time here... It is a unique city with so much to offer... full of charm, history, incredible architecture, and so much more - Enjoy!

I totally need to go to Boston, I haven't been in so long. I have so much family there too! My great-great grandparents came over from Sicily and settled in Boston. My great grandmother moved out to California later when she remarried and my grandmother was a teenager. We have so much history and kin in that city and I have only been a few times. My great grandmother still kept her accent though! LOL I loved hearing it. Boston is so neat! Thanks for sharing all these awesome photos!

All the best,
Allison

Lovely pictures Donna. I agree it's the most beautiful city in the whole world. (I'm a tad partial) I hope you're having a fun Patriot's Day.

I have nothing but wonderful memories of living in Boston, teaching at Boston University and the beauty and history of the city. I miss it so! I loved living down the street from Harvard and walking everywhere. It is a great walking city.

I still have to introduce the city to my husband and plan to do so soon!

I love living in Boston. You have captured in perfectly with your photographs and the music. I am originally from New York, and I have become totally enchanted with Boston. Looks like you had a wonderful time. I live in the city where the marathon begins. So everything is shut down and the fun of it all is wonderful.

Aww.. thank you for taking me home once again. As a girl in Dorchester I used to take the train into the heart of Boston with my cousin. I remember even back then how much I loved the brownstone's. Still do. I've been back a few times and have watched my beloved Boston maintain it's beauty over the years.

Wonderful pictures.

I love Boston! It's such a walkable city like NY. My husband's last job had their home office there and whenever he had an extended stay we would drive up together and I'd sightsee. I haven't been there since the big dig was completed however. I bet that makes a big difference!
