Weekend in Boston

Hi! I'm spending 3 days (4 nights) is Boston next weekend. What are your suggestions of must-sees and not worth it stuff? Also, if you can suggest restaurants, bars or coffee places that are worth discovering that'd be great, thanks :)

    Experiences: if you have even a slight interest in sports and don't mind spending a few bucks, nothing beats a game at Fenway Park, America's oldest ball park for a Red Sox game.

    The Museum of Science in Cambridge is another spot not to miss, especially the Mugar Omni Theatre. As for other Museums, you can definitely spend some time at the Museum of Fine Arts

    Walking along the Charles River Esplande is a great half day activity, especially when it's warm out, you could also walk across the Mass Ave Bridge into Cambridge. The view is spectacular! You can walk all the way down into Harvard Square.

    Avoid taking a Duck Boat tour! Just don't do it.

    Food: The North End; Boston's Little Italy is full over amazing restaurants and spots. Bricco, Fiore, Strega and Neptune Oyster House are all fantastic dinner spots with exceptional Italian food. Check out Mike's Pastries for cannolis and cappuccino after dinner.

    Toro in the South End is one of Boston's best restaurants, just make sure to get there right at 5pm or wait 2-3 hours for a table (they don't take reservations). Chinatown is also filled with excellent, authentic food. Taiwan Cafe is a standout for classic Taiwanese food, or check out Pho Pasteur for Boston's best bowl of pho. Or head across the street to Penang for Malaysian cuisine.

    Feeling adventurous? Head across the harbor to East Boston. You'll find Santarpios; Boston's best pizza spot (cash only) or you can walk around to one of the many fine Colombian/ Salvadoran/ Central American restaurants that fill the neighborhood like Roticeria Cancun, La Hacienda, or Taco Mex.

    Drinks; Eastern Standard in kenmore square makes some of the finest drinks the city has to offer. Looking for a more laid back, pub vibe? Head across the street to Cornwall's. Citizen's Public House has one the finest whiskey selections in the city right in the Fenway. You can stroll Boylston st on a weekend night for bar hopping. It'll be relatively quiet as the college kids aren't back yet.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi, Beatrice,

    Boston is a magnificent walking city, full of history and interesting architecture, so it is great fun to explore its neighborhoods on foot, including (as mentioned below) the North End (Italian), as well as the Back Bay and Freedom Trailanywhere else. Take a walking tour-- great ones are available from Boston By Foot (www.bostonbyfoot.org). Go up to the top of the tallest observatory in the Prudential Center Boston and look around 360, visit our beautiful public library, the 1st free public library in America and Trinity Church just across from the library on Copley Square. If you love museums, do go to our Museum of Fine Arts, but also stop at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum-- very close to it--a unique former home/palace of an eccentric woman art collector with an incredible art collection. Check out our waterfront and Aquarium. . . . it is ALL walk-able. I could go on . . . Have fun!

    The Freedom Trail is great. You'll get to see a lot of the city that way. We also love walking around Copley Square and the Back Bay Fenway Park and the Museum of Fine Arts are also favorites.

    For food our favorite place is Myers+Chang. So good! Get reservations in advance. Flour Bakery is also a great little bakery for breakfast, lunch or a snack.

    I agree with answers thus far. The Duck Boat Tour is worth it. I lived in NE most of my 52 years and never been on one until about 10 years ago when a friend visited. Definitely fun.

    If you are into history look into walking the Freedom Trail and touring the USS Constitution in the Charlestown Navy Yard.

    Stay away from Faneuil Hall. Quincy Market is not so bad for food but the rest is a tourist trap. Check out the Boston Public Market on Hanover St if you like farmer's markets (indoors).

    The Rose Kennedy Greeneay is a nice place to sit and have your lunch you picked up at the farmer's market and people watch.

    I totally disagree about the Boston Duck Tours comment. I lived there for 3 years. I went as a tourist before I moved there, took people who visited me on them and then took my husband on one when we went back a few years ago. They are fun, you get a good tour of the city and the tour in the water.


    Otherwise, the North End is great as well as Cambridge (Massachusetts).
