This first weekend of autumn we drove up to Boston to visit Andrew’s family, spying just a few changing leaves on our way. Our relaxing trip was full of biking, walking, and food from a roundup of the usual suspect places as well as a few new ones.
It seems like it’s hard to visit Boston without a stop at Flour. This bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich and pecan sticky bun are tried and true favorites.
An autumnal pumpkin muffin jumped into the mix as well!
The weather was perfect for biking around the Emerald Necklace.
We ended up at Turtle Swamp Brewing to sample some local beer.
I was ready for a salad lunch at this point—so many greens at Evergreen Eatery!
Everyone else ordered brunch, and I definitely snagged some hash browns!
Later we went for dinner at Orinoco, a Venezuelan restaurant we’ve visited several times before. We tried multiple kinds of arepas, all exceedingly tasty!
The next day, we took a long walk to check out the Boston Public Market, a new market and food court featuring lots of local farms and restaurants.
I had some creamy lobster bisque and half of a lobster roll from Red’s Best—yum!
We rounded off the meal and the trip with some hot cider and mini apple cider donuts from Red Apple Farm. The air was starting to get just a little crisp as we walked back from lunch to get back on the road. After a long drive home, Andrew and I split a pumpkin beer, our first of the season. Autumn is really here!
