Boston by Foot

Today Lori led a weight-loss talk and walk through Boston that I tagged along for and it was surprisingly fun. It was very cool to actually stop and pay attention to all the things I ignore while trying to drive in Boston. Normally, the only thing I'm focused on is open parking spaces. We did a two-hour walking tour of the Back Bay and South End, learning about the history of each neighborhood and some of the many cool pieces of architecture. This is first time since I was a kid that I did any sort of tourist thing in Boston. There were so many little architectural details and stories I didn't know, it felt like we were visiting some other country. Boston By Foot put the tour together and I highly recommend doing one. They have a special Halloween tour we might do this year too.
