Boston, You’re Beautiful

June 24, 2013
Founded in 1630, Boston is one of the oldest cities in the country and it is full of history. Pretty much anywhere you go, you'll find old, beautiful buildings with classic architecture right next to modern skyscrapers. We really enjoyed the time we spent getting to know our way around this vibrant and expressive city. On a tip from Kimmie McKenna '14 we started our adventure in Quincy Market, which was just beautiful. It's one of the oldest markets in the U.S., and for good reason! There are lots of fun little shops and great places to get food.

We met over 20 alums and their families at Fire & Ice. A Mongolian grill in the heart of Boston, Fire & Ice provided a perfect location for us to meet and enjoy a great meal with alumni. We were excited so many people could make it out, and loved the time we spent hearing about the adventures they've had in the city of Boston. We learned from Nick Hemming '13 that there are over 200 schools in the greater Boston area, and Andrew Henry '10 is taking advantage of that through his doctorate program at Boston University, which allows him to take classes at different universities in the area, including Harvard. We had Messiah fans of all ages join us last night, including future Falcon Benjamin Daniel Ashley (he was only 11 days old!) and his parents, Daniel and Christen '08 Ashley.

Though we hate to say goodbye, it's time to move on to Rochester, NY for our second to last stop on the Falcon Nation tour.
