    Hm, I'm excited about this trip - going to Boston area for 12 days very soon to visit the bf's relatives just as my work is winding down! Just wondering any historic sights/stuff to see or do, any recommendations? ! icon_cool.gif We got a really nice hotel in the area, too. This is going to be a very fun trip.

    Definitely make time for the Sam Adams Brewery tour. It's free and you get to drink their beer at the end. Also spend some time walking around China town and find a nice little place to get dim sum.

    If I were going to be in Boston for a while I would visit the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

    This is right by the Museum of Fine Arts as well http://www.mfa.org

    Other suggestions:
    *Duck Boat tour of the city.
    *Public Garden Swan Boats
    *Tour of Fenway
    *Newbury Street/Boylston Street/Copley (shopping)
    *North End for Italian food and Pastries (go to Maria's NOT Mike's)
    *South End is the gay mecca of Boston. THE best restaurants in the city. Toro is my favorite (spanish tapas). Stella was voted one of the top restaurants in the city. Great dinner, great brunch. Huge hangout spot. Rocca or Gaslight for drinks. Flour is a nationally-known bakery and sandwich shop, also in the South End. You can't lose in the South End.

    Oh, forgot to mention that if you're looking for historical, the Freedom Trail is always a cool thing to do.

    I moved to Boston not too long ago. Rent bikes and ride along the Charles River. Maybe day trip to Provincetown via ferry. I'm still trying to plan a trip to Walden Pond.
