Then we took the Hop On/Off trolley bus ($35/day) from the Paul Revere house (Stop #2) to (Stop #3) for the Charleston Navy Yard and Bunker Hill. We wanted to go to the Visitor Center to see their smaller Charleston Navy museum, but before you can go in, you have to go through Security. Another good history lesson visiting this museum…..
We had lunch at the Omni Parker hotel, only two blocks away. I had scrod (fish) with rice and vegetables, and we split a Boston Cream Pie ($35). The Omni Parker hotel invented the Parkerhouse Rolls – which were served on the table – and Boston Cream Pie in the 1920s. There is a table in the restaurant where JFK proposed to Jackie (seen below) and Charles Dickens resided there for five months in 1867/68.
