Simply put, this is the best place to start and end your Boston day trip. The Wharf has plenty of parking and is as reasonable as you'll find for prices. It's a very modest walk from downtown, and the Freedom Trail starts here. And the best part? Food! The Italian North End has some of Boston's best bakeries and restaurants. I've been coming to Boston for many years, and I always use the North End as my base of operation. I've always felt safe walking here, even in the dead of night, and it's convenient to I-93. It's what Boston used to be before it grew up and up and up.
