If you had told me ten years ago that M & I would be living on opposite coasts, I would have laughed. If you had told me the second time we were reunited, we would start out our Saturday night visiting libraries and churches, I would have thought we were living in a parallel universe. The Boston Public Library is more than books; I would describe it as part museum, part historical landmark. There is so much to see in its art and architecture, they offer daily public tours (reservations required) that take about an hour. That doesn’t count grabbing a cup of coffee from Map Cafe (how can a travel blogger resist that) and relaxing in the Renaissance Style Courtyard. I have always imagined that in a former life I lived in the Renaissance Times, so M knew to indulge my fantasy by planning a stop here. It’s also centrally located in Copley Square, with so many sites to see, and free to visitors.
Stroll with us, but whisper please…it is a library.
