Boston Public Garden is such a delightful and peaceful place. When we visit Boston we visit the Garden everyday.
The Museum of Fine Arts is a must if you are an art lover. The entire experience is amazing and they have their own school of art.
Oh the Granary Burying Ground is just pure delight. You will find the graves of so many individuals from our history there, including Mother Goose!
Incredible food you will find yourself going back time after time. This restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy all the culinary delights of Boston.
The Boston Common is by far my favorite place to visit and spend time. When in Boston I go to the Commons every single day. There is great parking underneath also, which puts you in the center of the city with easy access.
Even if you do not go into the museum or tour the ships it is fun to walk to the harbor and see this collection of history and take photos. If you have kids this is a must see as they will go bonkers.
Stay in a piece of history and the most convenient hotel in the city. The Omni Parker house is across the street from the Boston Common and is home of the Parker Roll and the Boston Crème Pie so make sure you have both when you are there. Lovely hotel and a great base camp for exploring the city.
I have been going to Mike's Pastry for 40 years and when the flight is nearing Logan airport I already begin to think of all the things I want to get when I am there. I found Mike's back in 1973 and it was not as busy then as now and if there is a line, stand in it is worth every morsel and moment.
What can I say .............Beacon Hill is a must and is on the walking tour of Boston. The gas lamps are still burning, it is home of Cheers for those who loved the show. Filled with charm and delight.
Probably one of the most popular places to photograph is the Old North Church. It is home of the steeple where the lanterns and Paul Revere's ride in the battle for independence from Great Britain. So delightful to visit.
While staying at the Omni Parker House you must eat at Parker's Restaurant at least once and you MUST have the Boston Crème Pie and Parker Rolls which were invented here!
Faneuil Hall Market place is a pure delight and it is easy to spend the whole day here eating and shopping. Faneuil Hall is fun to tour and the Quincy Market is pure heaven. Very relaxing shopping and dining experience.
The Old North End has changed much over the years. Before it was a quiet Italian neighborhood filled with great food and hidden gems. It was home of the Kennedy's. Today there are many more tourists and some of the great old places are gone, but there are plenty left.
The Freedom Trail is the very best way to see all of Boston. If there is any possible way you can walk the trail it is a must do. You will see each and every important and interesting landmark along the way. There are great restaurants such as Ye Old Oyster House that you MUST stop in and have a bowl of clam chowder and an Indian pudding!!!
The Boston Waterfront is filled with charm and great places to eat. It is the perfect place to take marvelous photographs and get great views of the Boston skyline. You can find all sorts of harbor tours here also.
The Old State House is a must visit. So many people do not take the time to go in and take a tour. It is a most amazing place. Queen Elizabeth made a speech from the balcony during her visit to the place. If you are unable to walk to it, again the tour bus is the way to go.
Copley Square is a great place to see the old meet the new as can be seen in the photographs. If walking there is too much, hop on the tour bus and see it that way.
The Old City Hall is a delightful part of Americana and is fun to visit.
