The History of Boston

I'm a sucker for big cities: Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle - I love them all. There's an energy in these cities that you just don't find in small, sleepy towns. Each of these cities also have a feeling that no other city that's uniquely its own.

That unique modifier combined with the energy of the city is enthralling for me. And always, no matter what city I'm in, I can almost feel what it would be like living there. Or, at least, I *think* I can. Boston is probably one of my most favorite cities to visit. This is because it's a city filled with history everywhere you look. The sense of that history pulls at me whenever I'm there. I always leave Boston with the sense that I'm leaving something greatly mysterious behind, and wouldn't it be awesome if I could stay...

So yep, because of that sense of history, I'd have to say Boston is on the top of my "favorite places to visit" list. But whenever I visit any bigger city, I'm always in awe of the energy, the electricity of the place, and I always want to come back again.

Someday, I'll make it out of the U.S., and then I might have other favorite places. What's your favorite place to travel to? I'd love to hear!

Have a great Monday!

I have always wanted to go to Boston! After reading this, I now want to go even more. (Contemplates setting a novel there for the invitable research trip......)

Lesley, I like the way you think! I've never been to Boston, but it does seem like one of those cities you have to visit at some point.
