    Never been to Boston either, but will be visiting in late August. Going to drop off my oldest daughter at Wellesley College. Sure am going to miss her. She and I watch America's Team (NE Patriots) play on Sundays in our living room. I guess now she'll get a chance to watch them live.

    Good luck and have fun!

    Duck Tour's are cool.

    There is so much to see in Boston.

    Dont let the dang taxi drivers rip you off! Make should to have your GPS turned on on you phone track the ride. One of only things I dont like about Boston is the taxi drivers...

    But the sea food is the best

    Head up 95 a bit from there if you have time...the NH & Maine coast are awesome. Plus the signage you'll see up in the Maine coastal towns are worth the trip.

    Cape Cod,Marthas Vineyard or Provincetown town for a day- The fast ferry goes from Boston to Provincetown its a great day trip! The most beautiful beaches and signs- gets you right in town too..taxis to beach, warm water

    If Not there are some nice beaches in Winthrop just outside of town-
    Glouchester, Rockport are n. shore water is FREEZING up north tho..

    Duck boats/Fanuiel Hall/Boston Common Gradens/Newbury street

    Chinatown(like mentioned) If you order cold tea at 2 am (after the bars close) they will put beer in the pot :)

    Go to the top of the Prudential Building on Beacon st- the views are amazing
    Check out boston.com for local happenings etc... and HAVE FUN!

    Union Oyster House/Fanuiel Hall . Walk the Freedom Trail around the Common/ublic Garden ansd Beacon Hill. And if you can do it the trip out to Ptown is great.
    Butera School of Art where I went to sign school on Beacon St is near the corner of the Public Garden diagonally across from the Bull & Finch Pub (Cheers)

    Go to Cheer's just to say you were there. It is incredibly tiny. Pizzeria Regina at Fanuel Hall, especially if you like anchovies on your slice. The things are dang fillets! Go to Jimmy's on the wharf and get a combo plate, it is where the stars eat. Cabbies will get you there. Ride the subway. Do not eat anyplace in close proximity to the airport. Horrible food and high priced too.

    That is all.

    I went to Butera 74-75. Had Mr Morrison and Greg. Mr C did the second year, but I got a job after 1 year. I was one of few non commuters, lived on Queensbury St in the Fens, was a marginal neighborhood then .Worked after school as a construction laborer at the brownstone next to Bull & Finch while it was being renovated into condos.
