Best Western University Hotel

1650 Commonwealth Ave., Boston, MA 02135
2 reviews

The BW University Hotel is the perfect place for a families on college visits, or parents of students at BU or BC in town to see their kids. It's also not a bad option for Boston tourists since it's pretty close to the greenline and there is ample, FREE parking--a rarity in Boston. I would definitely recommend to anyone who ...

    White Horse Tavern

    1.0 mi from Best Western University Hotel
    1 review

    I don't think the White Horse Tavern has much to make it something extraordinary. It's a decent bar with pool tables in the middle of a nice stretch of good dining in Allston. It's a fun place for a night out, but it is not a place you make a destination.

    As a place, interesting for sure. As a event space, really a great slice of local culture. Not so sure I'd want to visit if there wasn't a game on (unless for one of the rare concerts :) )

    Head Of The Charles Regatta

    2.17 mi from Best Western University Hotel
    77 reviews

    There is nothing more quintessential Cambridge than the Head of the Charles! This is a great event that is held every October on the Charles River. Other than watching the crew boats go by, you can stop by some of the vendor booths that are set up all along the river near Harvard.

    It's not New York City's Central Park, but it's a good place to go for a walk or run during late spring or early fall.

    Freedom Trail

    4.27 mi from Best Western University Hotel
    63 reviews

    Freedom trail can be considered the symbol of Boston. You cannot visit Boston without walking at least part of the trail. The red brick trail is really a great way of visiting many of the historical sites and attractions in Boston, the first stop being the Boston Commons, takes you through the old state house, Faneuil hall, and eventually Bunker ...

    Harvard Square

    Coming out of the Harvard Square T station, you will most likely be hit with the sound of either a young student playing on his/her guitar, or a group of protestors....protesting something. Harvard Square is certainly full of the artsy and creative types, in stark contrast to some of the more upscale restaurants and stores in this area. The Harvard ...

    This is a great street to spend some time just window shopping. It is an historic area with a great number of shops, galleries, restaurants, cafes even day spas. It is a very lively, picturesque street and well worth taking your time to explore it

    Public Garden

    32 reviews

    The rich history of Boston creates an urban aura of deeply rooted pride in native Bostonians as well as the city's visiting tourists. These gardens are sanctuaries in the midst of the surrounding buzz of city chaos. Truly a beautiful, serene spot to go to either with company or on your own. A wonderful spot to reflect and turn inwards, ...

    I'm not sure who had more fun on the Boston Duck Tour I went on: the kids, the parents or the grandparents. These amphibious vehicles (built for WWII) literally drive straight from land into the sea, so you get a tour of not only Boston's major sites within the city, but the beautiful Charles River. Totally campy, but so much ...

    Wandering around the Boston Library was perfect after trying to brave the city in a massive rain storm. You can't help but find yourself fully entranced by the different exhibits at one end or the incredible architecture.Need a place for a picnic? Try the court yard in the center.

    21 reviews

    Now this is a curiosity: an old house was turned into a museum on the condition that no one was allowed to change anything about it. From this, all one can surmise is that Ms. Gardner was perhaps the most eclectic collector and traveller this side of the Rio Grande. Beautiful, with art of all varieties (good, bad, high, low), ...

    The Esplanade is actually a state-owned park situated in the Back Bay area of the city, on the banks of the Charles River. It extends for over 3 miles so there is plenty of room to wander. The July Fourth concert and fireworks is my favorite activity, bring bug spray.

    To put it up front, I didn't dislike this tour, but having experienced significantly better tour organization as well as beers at Harpoon Brewery, if you only had a chance to go to one place, I'd make it Harpoon instead of Sam Adams. Came here on a mildly sunny November day and got the free tour ticket right away for ...

    Tourists seem to really like looking around Harvard Yard. It is nice and it probably annoys Harvard, so that's fun.
