    Took a good friend to Fenway Park for the first time. It was a blast. Great atmosphere and good food. It's a true slice of Americana that should be on every baseball fan's list.

    Have your walking shoes on. The Freedom Trail is an amazing walk of history. Easy to follow brick path through the Freedom Trail.

    I wish history was taught like this when I was in school. It is interactive and really captures what I think the feelings of the Colonists were at that time. Factual and fun. I would recommend for families and for anyone wanting to know what happened at that time, to help us become independent.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent in North End in our recent trip to Boston. Its Little Italy is my favorite of any of the major cities, and they have some of the best food and pastry shops. Very peaceful to stroll around, except for all the Red Sox gear that other people are wearing! Go Yankees!

    Absolutely beautiful building, it truly looks as if it belongs in Italy. I wasn’t planning on staying long, but we ended up staying longer than expected because it really is stunning.

    We enjoyed it because of the history. Big enough that 2 school groups didn’t matter were there at the same time we were. We were able to see a lot on the ship. All of the “Quarters”

    Great place to walk and take pictures. The streets were clean. The street was unique.
    The homes were beautiful in the area some of a hill to walk.

    The hall itself isn’t too interesting, with some touristy trinket shops, but if you’re in the area it’s worth walking through.

    I loved this street, it has varied shops (Harry Potter too!), restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream /dessert shops, TJ Max with a restroom on the 2do floor, etc. Just walking during the day or even better at night (restaurants lit up their areas) is very relaxing.

    So poignant and utterly sad, reading the truthful words of those horrifically impacted by the murderous Nazis.
    The respect shown by the City of Boston, is evident and the arrangment of this memorial, was quite unique and yet, so hard-hitting.
    So worthy of seeing and to read the comments.

    My wife and I took the self-guided tour of the church. I found the construction of the pew 'pods' interesting. The church is fairly simple in design (compared to some churches I've seen in Europe), but I did find the pew finished in red velvet pretty interesting.

    We walked through this and bought a t-shirt for our teen. the food options are diverse but saved our appetite for union oyster house. there is an area telling the history of the building on the back end which is interesting.

    Attend last game of Bruin's 100th Season at TD Garden. Caught train from Dedham and walked the 3/4 mile along the greenway from the train station to TD Garden. All the local restaurants and bars had good vibes. Walked greenway back to station, totally safe after Bruins game ended at 10PM.

    Pros:
    Clean, polite staff, wide food selection, well ventilated, clear sound system, good vibes

    Interesting grounds, a few famous names and was in a pretty area, lots of trees and out of the heat. Fairly cowded with tour groups.
