4 Brits now 5 Brits!

Hi guys,

Now all booked up and got us an extra bloke as well! We're staying around United St and Watson St. Would it be possible for one of you good people to advise how close this is to the 'action'? We've no intention of keeping the car but would like to know if its walking distance or biking distance?

You are 8 blocks from the South end of Duval, 1.6 Miles from Mallory Sq and a little over a mile from the Harbor. Bikes would be a good idea.

Grab a map as soon as you get into KW. Bring good shoes for walking.

Legend, actually, by a fellow named Longfellow:

Listen my children and you shall hear

Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,

On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;

Hardly a man is now alive

Who remembers that famous day and year.

He said to his friend, "If the British march

By land or sea from the town to-night,

Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch

Of the North Church tower as a signal light,--

One if by land, and two if by sea;

And I on the opposite shore will be,

Ready to ride and spread the alarm

Through every Middlesex village and farm,

For the country folk to be up and to arm."

Davy - Boy I haven't heard that in a lot of years.

BigDano - go to mapquest.com. I don't know if the first screen you get will be for the US, if not find the US "Maps" entry area. Put in the exact address of the place your staying, or just the zip code of 33040, and push "Search." You can then move the map around and zoom in as much as you want. Hope this helps you. I assume you know that Duval St. is usually considered where the action is.
