Summer in the Park:
Got to spend the weekend on a spontaneous trip with my mom😍 We wanted to be tourists in our own city, so we spent two days walking through parks and the Wharf, riding Codzilla, seeing improv shows, and getting WAY too excited on the swinging chairs at the Greenway. I’m so grateful to call this woman my mom – she constantly shows me how to seek out adventure, find gratitude in the small things, and make the most of each day. And now I’m making her get a passport!😉 @bettercall_lau #weekend #trip #tourist #bucketlist #latergram

It appears that the age of the taxi cab in the city of Boston is coming to an end. Ride-share services are quickly eclipsing the use of cabs. Any hotel doorman will tell you that there has been an economic shift in the way that people are getting around the city, continue reading.
