Boston Fourth of July

Sometimes the timing on this trip just works out perfectly. I have been wanting to be in Boston for the 4th of July for a very long time now. Well this has been my year for a lot of those wishes to come true. The historical relevance is unmatched. Aside from the history I have been wanting to see the Boston fireworks show since I was a kid. If you ever get the chance to go, make it happen, it’s something everyone should do once. Even if you have to wait four hours in the drizzling cold rain it is still completely worth it.
I found my way to my Boston hosts through U.25 magazine. Thought the plan was to be here for the 4th I wasn’t sure how it was going to happen. Katie contacted me a week ago and now here I am. After welcoming me with a great home cooked dinner it was five of us that headed to the Charles River; Katie, Shannon, Jeit, Dan, and myself. And a good time it was. I have never seen a fireworks show like that in my life. I can’t say it’s the best in the country because I haven’t seen them all, but I would be surprised if it wasn’t.
I’m pumped to be in Boston and I think I’ll get a great taste of it from hanging out with this group of 23 year olds (most of them are actually from Cranston, where I stayed in Rhode Island). Boston has a lot going on, a lot of character, and seems to be a lot more manageable than other cities. Boston, here I come!
And in the lyrics of Augustana, “I think I’ll go to Boston.”
