Our train arrived at Boston South Station after midnight, about three hours late. Finding a taxi was no problem, they were waiting at the station for potential fares. Our hotel was holding our reservations for us as we had notified them we would be quite late. It’s cold here! I miss Arizona already!
We stayed the night in Boston at the Best Western Roundhouse Suites. An interesting building. It was built in 1875 to store coal gas for the city’s street lights and residences. It was converted to a warehouse early in the 20th century after the streetlight system was electrified.
We called Enterprise to rent a car and they brought one to us right away. Then we were on our way through Boston, Massachusetts, to Concord, New Hampshire.
Concord, NH, is only about an hour north of Boston.
They have had a lot of snow!
Winter, ugh.. the residential streets are extra narrow due to the amount of snow piled along the edges. Unfortunately the side mirror of our rental car got clipped while it was parked there.
Now here is the whole reason we made this long trip to the Northeast…our very first grandchild!
We’ll be here a few more days and then head back to Arizona. We did enjoy the train trip up here and have decided to return to Arizona on Amtrak again, but we will take a different route for the return, going south through the Appellation mountains and to New Orleans, then west to Benson, Arizona, where it is sunny and warm.
