    Being over 75 and not technical savvy, It was very difficult for us to gain entrance to the park. We needed a lot of help from younger people to get into the park, There was no way to get paper tickets for this generation, I was clearly age discrimination in my mind

    This activity can last you for a few days- and its great. there are 16 locations in the trail, and its around 4 kilometers, but you don't just walk- many of the destinations (like the u.s.s constitution , paul revere house and many more) definitely worth a visit- get to know lovely boston when you walk around the trail- awesome!

    Can’t recommend this highly enough ! We had a range of ages from 20’s to late 60’s . A bit of grumbling when I bought tickets but when it was over,everyone thought it was great. You take part in town meeting and then go to replica boat and help unload the tea! Excellent actors in character filling you in on all the fascinating details and history . It goes from there and I don’t want to spoil the fun but I think you will have missed something very special if you don’t visit!

    I could eat my way through the North End for weeks. I love the smell and the diversity of desserts and restaurants. Its a must do in Boston

    We visited Boston Public Library on 05/17. Initially, we expected nothing but a regular library, but this was full of surprises.

    The front entrance and building is normal, but venture out to the courtyard and it'll take you into a beautiful new section, seeming straight out of Europe.

    Will definitely be visiting again and spending more time in the second section - it seems perfect for studying or relaxing in too!

    A window on sailing life in the 18th century, as well as some very important American history. Ship is very open for kids to poke around, though young kids may find 30 minutes to be plenty, take the ferry from downtown.

    The best way to see Beacon Hill is on the Hop on Hop Off Trolley Tour. The architecture is stunning, well worth the trip!

    Were able to see the meeting room on the 2nd floor. Not always open but if it is don't miss the opportunity to see it. The weather vain is a grasshopper. ON the historical walking tour we found out that it was changed out at 200 years and it was found to be a time capsule with documents and money from the original builder of the grasshopper. What a find and tidbit of history.

    Great shops. A lot of restaurant options. Great area to spend a few hours out of your day. Wear walking shoes!

    One of the city's most famous areas is Back Bay, characterized by rows of Victorian era brownstones. The neighbourhood's northern boundary is Storrow Drive; its southern one, the Southwestern Corridor Path.  Art galleries, cafes, pubs and restaurants populate the myriad streets between, and there is excellent shopping to be enjoyed on Boylston and Newbury Streets.  Depending on the weather, dining al fresco is the norm.

    This three-story, stained-glass globe gives you a three-dimensional view of the world. Exhibit also shows how countries and borders have changed over the years.

    The staff are very nice and the building and grounds are amazing. Well worth the $10 admission fee. Be sure to take the time to read the plaques, you will learn things that aren't in the history books.

    It was a few years ago and they are doing upgrades currently but had a blast here for B.C, Football games !!!!!!!!!! back then you could tailgate in the parking lot (with parking pass of course) - then go enjoy the game and have a wonderful weekend afternoon - had so much fun at the game I got seasons tickets for the following year - have since stopped going but really do miss it (had to post a date visited so chose the oldest available but we were there in the early 2000's)

    The city has gone to the trouble to provide a path along the harbor. You should really seize the opportunity! The walk is pretty -- a view of the harbor, the airport, and the city at different points along the route.

    We walked the Castle Island loop around the historic Fort Independence and continued on to take the Pleasure Bay loop for a longer stroll. This was a great place to unwind and enjoy the view.
