Visit Boston January

Visit Boston January

I lived on Cape Ann years ago but still visit Boston every 2 or 3 years. My advice is concentrate on where to live first. Seeing all the wonderful areas and the incredible history and amazing eateries can be savored after you live there. I just returned from a 3 day weekend there in January, and my personal choice would be Somerville if I had to move to Boston tomorrow. Boston has great transportation that is aasy to use, buy a pass (subway/bus combo) when you get there, parking is expensive as you may know. Do not discount the idea of getting a room/rooms in a private home…

Boston Visitor Center

May 25, 2012 - jwurtsbaugh The cashier tried to rip me off! Visiting Boston, I went to the Visitor s Information Center at Boston Common on Friday May 18, 2012, in the early afternoon. I brought a $1 Boston walking map up to the counter, gave the cashier a ten-dollar-bill. I looked away for a second, and she said, You re all set. I replied, Huh? and she said again, You re all set. I said, That was a ten,and she just said mm-hmm but didn t look me in the eye after that, just gave me the $9 change without a word. Honest mistake? I THINK NOT! I was a cashier for 8 years…

Visiting Boston in October

Boston is at its most beautiful in the fall. As the leaves turn, Boston s parks put on an unforgettable show, complementing the historic architecture. A walk along the city s Freedom Trail now doubles as a foliage tour. It s a great time to visit Boston s Faneuil Hall Marketplace, as the crowds thin out, but the weather is still pleasant. On a cooler day, take a stroll through the gorgeous indoor courtyard of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. For sports fans, the New England Patriots kick off the football season at Gillette Stadium and the Red Sox chase another World Series…

Boston Visit with Teenagers

6. Re: Visit with teens Feb 05, 2013, 2:59 PM I m sure you have a particular reason for visiting MIT campus, but consider also visiting Harvard Campus. It s more charming and historic, and it s more of a defined campus vs buildings spread out over a wider area. Harvard Square is also a fun spot. In addition to the FT, walk around Beacon Hill. I adored that as a teen. The scale and character of the old architecture and streets fascinated me. It was just way cool. The North End is worth a deeper visit (you ll pass through on the FT). It s Boston s historic Little Italy. Whale…

Boston Sites Visit

By Nomadic Matt | Published December 6th, 2010 Being one of the most historic and oldest cities in the United States, Boston has a lot of interesting things to do. It’s not as large as New York or Chicago, and it often feels like its more a giant town than a city. I think that this adds to how great Boston is. It offers all the benefits of a big metropolis but without the intensity and fast pace of New York. Boston isn’t a city to rush through. Unlike many other destinations, people who visit Boston tend not to do it in a day or two. It’s as if they already know this is a relaxed…
