I've been to Boston so many times I've lost count, so I've seen probably everything there is to see tourist-wise.
I'm heading back to the Beantown area between after Christmas with a friend who has never been to the city - so what I'm looking for are your fave spots to recommend to visitors! Then i can give her a list and she can pick what she'd like to see. :)
We're going to be in town for NYE (the whole road trip idea started because she wanted to see an NBA game in person and I've got tons of friends we can stay with in the area) - we're hoping to get tix for the NYE Celtics afternoon game. :) Other things that I'm definitely showing her include Fanuiel Hall (a personal fave spot of mine!) and the Harvard campus.
Also - does anyone know how long the city keeps up the Christmas tree in the Common for after Christmas? In all my trips to Boston, I have yet to see the tree - and being from Halifax, the tree has always held a special place in my heart because of the connection between our cities, so I'd love to see it in person! :)
Thanks for any info y'all can give me - and lets hear all your fave Boston tourist spots! :)
