Visiting Boston between Christmas and New Year's, arriving the 27th and leaving the 30th. We are bringing our 18 and 20 year old daughters. There are plenty of options for hotels available at a reasonable price( by Boston standards). I am looking for recommendations on what area to stay. Considering Back Bay, Quincy Market and Theatre District but am looking for recommendations on areas and specific hotels.
We will want to visit a few historical areas, shop, access to nice places to eat dinner and nice pubs for me to explore while the rest of the family shops.
