I have returned from my weekend trip to Boston, MA!
I must say, I am not as satisfied as I thought I would be. Not only that, but I am also down about 200 bucks due to subway fares, shopping, food, and drinking. I went hoping I'd find a new instrument or stumble upon something I can't find around here. I am surprised I didn't see some better used gear- especially since I was around the Berklee College area. I figured there would be more music shops but there were not many.
I picked a pretty bad weekend to go too- it was around 30 degrees most of the time and extremely windy. Even with all the layers I was wearing, I was still numb. I could only walk a few blocks at a time before I needed to retreat to a warm Starbucks or hop on the subway.
Despite the cold and lack of guitar shops, I still had a great time. I was able to get away from my home state for a while and found a few more places in Boston I really enjoyed. I am definitely planning to go back within the next year- when the weather is warmer of course!
