hello, we fly in next week and have one night at the Westin Waterfront - we get in around 6:30 p.m. and will take the SL1 over to the hotel. I've done some searchiing on restaurants that are right there to walk to (on the water) for a casual dinner (12 and 13 year old w/us). Any recommendations? Everything seems to be pricey/too nice after a long travel day or doesn't get great reviews (Yelp). We are open to traveling into downtown if it's a fairly easy/short trip that evening.
The next day we have friends flying in and we have the Marriott Long Wharf for several nights. We'll have the week transportation pass but logisitically getting there seems to be a pain (via bus/ subway, transfer, subway, transfer, subway). We are all perfectly capable of walking and it's just about a mile. Question: is it a safe walk, traffic and/or construction wise? We'll have carry-on size roller bags. And would you recommend walking Seaport or Summer street?
I've also considered taking a bus back to the Blue line transfer by the airport and taking a direct shot in from there to the Aquarium stop.
Thank you!Edited: 11:18 am, June 23, 2011
