Hi, my mother, daughter and I will be visiting B. for the very first time this Oct. We are staying at the Radisson in the theatrer district. I've been trying to find out as much info. on what we should do during our 4 full days. Besides the museums, aquarium,duck tours, swan boats, we were thinking about doing a whale watching tour. I noticed that most of the tours were for the summer mo. only. Any whale excursions in Oct? Is there ice skating at the Boston Commons this time of year? And, what would anyone suggest to pack for a touring family that dosen't want to bring everything but the kitchen sink.
