TRIDENT BOOKSELLER & CAFE: A friend suggested to come here during our visit for breakfast. She's familiar with my love of food and books, so what a perfect little combination. It's a bit cafeteria style, with hard plastic plates and silverware and compact table setting on the first floor. The second floor has a completely different atmosphere, but we didn't realize there was second floor seating until we finished our meal. This cafe is very busy and I suggest looking at the menu ahead of time; the options are endless. I do have to add that I was more thrilled about their book options than their food. It wasn't because the food wasn't good, but I was more impressed with the amount of spines they had lined on the shelves. (338 St, Boston, MA 02115) http://tridentbookscafe.com
By this time in the morning we only had a moment to grab food and hit the road. It really is hard to capture the entire weekend with just a few little blog posts, which I still feel are outrageously long, but I hope that anyone who is coming to the area are able to choose from a couple spots we enjoyed and steer away from the places that weren't so great. Just to recap and highlight some places I didn't earlier, here is a small list of areas we visited in Boston/Cambridge area! If you click on the name, new pages will open up to give you more information about that location. If you do download the "Freedom Trail" app you will get all of the following historic locations and a lot more. Unfortunately we couldn't make everything that was on the mobile list because of the weather.
BOSTON COMMON - PAUL REVERE HOUSE - BUNKER HILL MONUMENT - USS CONSTITUTION MUSEUM - OLD STATE HOUSE - OLD SOUTH MEETING HOUSE - BOSTON NAVY YARD - TRINITY CHURCH - BOSTON NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK - GRANARY BURYING GROUND - FANEUIL HALL
