Sightseeing in a Limousine in Boston
By Marsha Maung
If you only have a day to spare for a short trip, and you do not want to drive, how about booking a limousine for a trip to Boston? Not only would you not have to argue with your friends as to who will be the designated driver, you and your friends are in for a spectacular trip to Boston.
With a hired limousine to Boston, you and your group of friends will not have to worry about anything that has to do with transport. From driving to looking for the place that you want to visit, to parking the vehicle, these are all taken care of by the limousine driver. All you and your group of friends need to do is just sit back, relax and enjoy the trip.
Begin your trip with your limousine friends to the Paul Revere House, the oldest house that can be found in the downtown area. The Paul Revere House dates all the way back to the 17th century, and between 1770 and 1800, Revere owned this home. It has now become a national history landmark and one of the few remaining from an early era in the history of colonial America. In 1800, Paul Revere sold the home, and soon it became a tenement, and the ground floor was remodeled for use as shops. However, Paul Revere's great-grandson, John P. Reynolds Jr. bought the building back so that it would not be demolished. For the next few years, money was raised and the Paul Revere Memorial Association was formed to preserve and renovate the building. Until today, the Association still oversees the preservation and the everyday operations of this national treasure.
Another great architecture building to see is the Arlington Street Church. Have your limousine driver to bring you over to 351 Boylston St., to view this magnificent building. Today, Arlington Street Church stands as a pristine example of the 19th century Boston architecture. Its location also makes it a popular spot for wedding ceremonies.
After the visit to the Arlington Street Church, stop over at the Fanueil Hall for some lunch and shopping. It is said to be Boston at its best with more than 100 of the finest shops and carts, with national names and locally owned treasures. From accessories to eyewear to houseware and home furnishings, jewelry, clothes for children and adult, shoes and even toys there is bound to be something that you or your limousine friends to buy for yourselves or your loved ones.
To wind down after shopping, ask your limousine driver to take you to Ruth's Chris Steak House. They are popular with their steaks, and as their founder, Ruth Fertel used to say, If you've ever had a filet this good, welcome back. At Ruth's Chris Steak House, you will not find the usual stodgy, uptight attitude that you may find in other steak houses as they encourage their guests to feel free to laugh out loud and have a great time dining at their steak house.
Finally, after a sumptuous dinner, you and your limousine friends can now travel home once again after a great day at Boston in the limousine that you booked for this trip without any regrets, right?
