Boston Opera House
Sunset over Beacon Hill
Last Sunday I went into the city to do some exploring and shopping. I had been wanting to make the trip since I moved three months ago, but this was my first free weekend.
I was going to take the train, but chickened out and wound up driving in. I was happy to find that it was closer than I expected.
One of my main reasons for going was to check out the new Primark. If you’re not familiar with the store, it’s a UK based department store the just opened its first US store in Boston. Having heard about it for years on YouTube, I was excited to see it in real life. But, I found it disappointing. It was like a lower quality H&M or Forever 21 in terms of quality. Plus it was so crowded and loud. And they had one of the most ill equipped bathrooms I have ever seen. This is a four story shop whose women’s bathroom has two stalls. The line was about fifteen people long and only one stall had toilet paper.
I don’t think I’ll go out of my way to go there again, but I enjoyed my trip none the less.
If you have any recommendations for where I should go on my next Boston exploration, let me know!
