As I depart for Boston for our ABA Annual Meeting, I remember the many reasons I love this city that I've visited every year since I was born 35 years ago. Where else can you find a Dunkin Donuts at every corner and ride a swan boat that another man or woman pedals?
- Boston is rich in our country's history with everything from the pilgrims at Plymouth Rock and Paul Revere to the Boston Tea Party, Salem Witch Trials and the Museum of African American History.
- The Italian food is delicious, especially creamy ice cream and amazing pizza in the charming restaurants and bakeries of North End.
- There's a timeless Americana quality so you can still picture the Kennedy family vacationing on the beaches. I found my first star fish, hermit crab and sand dollar on those beaches as a child with my parents, brother, sister and cousin.
- It's full of literary treasures and haunts. We toured the homes of Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry James and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to name just a few.
- The fresh sea food from that water is delicious! In fact, we're having an ABA Section of Science & Technology Law (SciTech) dinner at the classic Legal Sea Food. There's also a Legal Sea Food at the Logan Airport in Boston.
- Boston is home to many universities and students. I'm excited to experience some of that at our SciTech Reception this Friday at Harvard Club Boston.
- Boston teams have spirit, go Red Sox!
- Boston accents are the best.
- I love Bostonians. They seem comfortable in their own skin. My sweet nieces and cousins live nearby, too!
- Boston is home to many good musicians such as Aerosmith, Donna Smith, James Taylor, New Kids on the Block and of course Boston.
