The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
The Freedom Trail, to me, is best experienced by walking it. There is a trail line marked on the sidewalks, so all you have to do is follow the line. I started out at the U.S.S. Constitution. The oldest ship that is still commissioned in the U. S. Navy. I proceeded up to the Bunker Hill Memorial. Be sure and...
"Declaration of Independence Printing and History"
reviewed 3 days ago by Rebekah J
This is a great place to learn history and to take kids. They show you how they used to run the old printing presses and explain how tedious but important the job was. Great place for couples, children and more.
Another calm between two busy areas in a big city. Easy to get to and easier to enjoy. The water area full of small children enjoying the fountains on a hot day, travelers enjoying the break from a busy day.
Had sea Bream and the salmon. Both were very fresh , nicely seasoned and very tasty. Wife had smoked salmon tartar as appetizer and loved it. Drank excellent white burgundy. Highly recommend this restaurant. It is one block behind the Four Seasons. Easy walk.
We picked up lunch and walked to a nearby park to eat. We split a lobster roll and large clam chowder. Both were really good, especially the lobster roll. Exactly what you want: lots of fresh lobster without any filler. A must try when visiting Boston.
We got in to Boston and to our hotel before we could check in and wanted to find somewhere local to get something to eat. We did a quick search and decided to check out Mike & Patty's -- the sandwiches were absolutely amazing but there is no real seating... We were lucky there were two of the four stools...
"Top class coffee and Breakfast pre Freedom Trail walk"
reviewed 3 days ago by Steve_C7472014
Having found this place from the reviews on Trip Advisor, I hoped I wouldn’t be disappointed; I certainly wasn’t! Friendly service, superb coffee both macchiato and flavoured latte, and tasty food. Would recommend to anyone who is wanting a quick bite before the Freedom Trail.
Top top top hotel from top to bottom... Staff are incredible, Lobby is very welcoming with fine eating and Bar. The rooms are spectacular especially those overlooking the river, very spacious with plush Linens. The bathrooms are equally luxurious with everything you could want. Cant find fault anywhere
We stayed at the MVC on a recent trip to Boston and were very happy we selected it. Incredible location (across from Quincy Market in the Old Custom House), cheaper rates than competitors, and enough space for a family of four without needed a second room. We watched fireworks from the rooftop observation deck.
We stayed at the Four Seasons Boston for business event. Surprised at a complimentary suite upgrade with view of Boston Public Garden. Check in was personal and unhurried. We were walked to the elevator by the front desk staff. Room and facilities were impeccable and there is a unique commitment to personal service that we have not experienced elsewhere. Our...
"A superb hotel in a stunning position on the Boston waterfront"
reviewed yesterday by 255100Sandra
We stayed two nights in a deluxe king harbor view room. We were upgraded to a larger room with a separate sitting area, balcony & larger bathroom. Everything about the room was perfect & the bathroom contained luxury toiletries.
The staff, from the moment of our arrival, were exceptional & nothing was too much trouble for them. We were made...
We were setting off on a road trip in the States having flown into Boston, but taking other reviewer's advice, opted not to collect the car til we were leaving Boston 2 days later. Good advice! The traffic is horrific and the the car parks a fortune.We wanted somewhere central to stay and used the 'hotel tonight" app to book...
