Itinerary – Boston, USA – 2022

By rosannau / On

The Pandemic had cancelled many of my travel plans over the past 2 years. It’s been 3 years since I have left Canada (at least it was an epic 36 Eurotrip that I did in Sept/Oct 2019) and first stop was to Boston & Rhode Island to participate in the 77th NACIVT (North American Chinese Invitational Volleyball Tournament) that took place at Rhode Island Convention Center.

To make the most of it and of course because there was no direct flight to Rhode Island from Toronto, I travelled with my teammate Esther to Boston for less than 48 hours before heading to Rhode Island via Porter Airlines.

Especially with the lack of travelling, I needed to get that spark of building an itinerary up and running and oh boy we sure did that.

If you are up for it, I created a walking itinerary that will cover majority of the downtown Boston area and it covers some touristy spots but also some interesting gems along the way. We lucked out to have 2 days of perfect weather. I imagine with some reworking, you might even be able to combine both days worth of my itinerary into one if you are that ambitious. I’ll leave that up to you.
