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.
If you're even just a little interested in history, this is a must. Take a whole day, so you can really stop and visit. Nice shops on the way (but remember you have to carry your purchases and the trail is long...)
To name the most popular, the cemetery has the graves of John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and Paul Revere. It is right beside the Park Church. There was a fellow at the gate loaning anyone a folder with information and the location of the historic graves. Just return the folder when you're done.
The tour guide noted that there are more...
We were In Boston only 1 day and we took a walk by the harbor. It was late in the day and the water was ABSOLUTELY beautiful. There is an amazing view of the city skyline. I will definitely be returning as soon as possible.
Went to James Hook & Co for lunch on a Sunday. It was relatively busy on arrival with a modest 5 minute queue.
I ordered the clam chowder, lobster roll, coleslaw and a drink, waited another 5 minutes to receive the order then went and sat in the outside seating area.
The chowder was very tasty and the lobster meat...
Breakfast / brunch sandwiches available as takeout only. Fresh ingredients and bread. I enjoyed a Torta that included fried egg, avocado, refried bean and chorizo. Tiny little corner shop and all sandwiches made to order.
There is a tiny park about a block away where you can sit on bench and enjoy your meal.

Truly glorious Japanese food. The waitress will guide you through the overwhelming menu (please order from the a la carte menu) and you only have to relax and enjoy every bite.
We shared everything and had a great time
The crowd at the bar was also celebrating and their noise level made it impossible to hear much
It was a...
Stayed at Intercontinental Boston for two nights as part of an Ambassador weekend night certificate. As a Spire Ambassador member I was upgraded from a King Bed Deluxe room to a King Bed Partial Water cies room, 907, through the river view really was partial so a negligible upgrade in my opinion.
The room itself was large and well appointed...
We returned to our beloved Boston for a family celebration weekend. We found the Marriott at The Custom House to be spacious and comfortable for our family of 4. The rooms were well appointed and we found the staff to be courteous and friendly. Loved the close proximity to Faneuil Hall and the North End. Definitely one of our favorite...
We used to stay at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, but the Boston Harbor Hotel is much closer to the airport and has ocean views. My husband and I fly from Los Angeles to Boston at least once a year to visit family and friends. In order to leave L.A. at a fairly civilized time, we usually land in Boston...
