Happy National Lighthouse Day!

There are nearly 200 lighthouses in New England, making it a perfect symbol for the region (so perfect we adopted it for our logo!). On our recent trip to Bar Harbor, we stumbled upon the Baker Island Lighthouse. Despite being the only structure on the isolated island, the Gilley family raised multiple generations of children on the beacon’s grounds. We hope you take the time to appreciate the history and heritage of New England on this special day.

These Ships Have Sailed

In the midst of a trans-Atlantic race spanning over 7,000 nautical miles, the 40 magnificent Tall Ships stopped in Boston on the weekend of June 17th. Hundreds of thousands of visitors flocked to the coast to welcome some of the most heralded ships in the world to their beloved harbor town.

At Dusk

Lake Waban is known for many different characteristics. It is known as a hallmark component of Wellesley College’s topography. It is known as the go-to walking trail for local residents and their canine companions. And it is known as one of the most contaminated bodies of water in all of New England. Unfortunately, it was also known as one of my favorite swimming holes as a kid.

The lake used to be home to one of the area’s finest lead paint factories. That lead paint seeped into the water, provoking the state to classify Waban as a Tier 1A host of hazardous waste in the late 1990s. On the bright side, it looks great.

Wellesley College

Wellesley College has been a bastion of women’s education since its conception in 1870. The institution has produced powerhouse alumni like Madeleine Albright, Hillary Clinton, and Diane Sawyer. Locals enjoy the college for its picturesque topography and historic architecture.

Boston Public Library

The Boston Public Library is home to over 3.7 million items in circulation, making it the third largest library in the country, only behind the Library of Congress and New York Public Library. Despite being rich in resources, most people know of the library from its Harry Potter-like study rooms and museum quality frescoes. The relatively dim lighting and the reflective hardwood and marble create a harsh aesthetic for most any photo taken inside. The result is an almost Polaroid quality image. No matter the medium, it is easy to admire this cherished part of New England history!

“Brrr”lington

A beautiful, quaint city located on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain, Burlington, Vermont was first settled in 1783 and incorporated in 1865. The seemingly quiet and peaceful city is ripe with history and tradition. Beginning in Colonial times, Burlington served as a popular trading outpost with the French-Canadians and others traveling up and down Lake Champlain. Today, Burlington is home to many small local businesses, some, such as Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, have become national successes. We had the chance to explore Burlington’s beautiful harbor front and would highly recommend a visit!

Lights on Comm Ave

When America was first founded, the Back Bay area of Boston was an actual bay, covered by water. In the 1800’s, Boston commissioned a job to fill the bay with dirt, creating what we know today. Ever since the neighborhood’s conception, the Comm Ave Mall has been an integral landmark. Today, the Mall is famous for its lights and historical Brownstones.

Snow Daze

When a Boston blizzard hits, snow days are passed spending time with friends, procrastinating on homework, and looking good while doing so (thanks to our Classic Cap).
