    Fenway Park

    91 reviews

    You can't go into Fenway Park expecting the following: nice people, clean seats, healthy atmosphere, cordial language. Then again, that's what makes Fenway, well, Fenway. The crowd is rough and rowdy, you WILL get beer spilled all over you, the seats are uncomfortable, and the language is PG-13 at best. But Fenway also has an amazing fan base, and people ...

    Head Of The Charles Regatta

    Watch this amazing display of sculling skill! Every October the Charles river comes alive as collegiate rowers attempt to best each other on the river. The boat is about 15 minutes from this event, and definitely worth the trip to check out!

    Boston Common

    86 reviews

    Right in downtown Boston, very magical in the fall especially around the time of the Pumpkin festival. Boston is a city you really only want to be in during certain weather seasons (IE not the winter) but late spring & early fall is wonderful.

    Really, the fifth avenue of Boston. All along the street, is filled with high end shops, even some of the rare European and Japanese brands that cannot be easily found in the rest of US, excellent spot for browsing the latest fashion. Secondary to the fashion scene, there are also plenty of classy food choices here.

    USS Constitution Museum

    39 reviews

    The USS Constitution is one of the oldest commissioned ships in the US. On this tour you'll get to tour the ship itself on the inside as well as see the museum. It's pretty cool as a relic of the US in the past, and you get some rich history. Must-see.

    North End

    37 reviews

    I love anything involving pasta and/or cheese, so naturally I'm a huge fan of the North End, Boston's little Italy. I like to come here when I want to get away from the pretentious, New-Englandy-ness of Boston and pretend I'm in Italy, wandering the cobblestone streets of the old world. And you really can't go wrong with any of the ...

    The Swan Boats on the pond are a fun tradition - and on warm, sunny afternoons, this is a simply beautiful and relaxing activity for the whole family. Plus, the Make Way For Ducklings statues are heartwarming for anyone who grew up with the story - my Boston-bred grandmother (who also happens to love and collect ducks) read it to ...

    I remember visiting my Aunt in East Bridgewater, MA and when I said I wanted to go to Boston to see the sights, she said go to Faneuil Hall. She couldn't tell me why, but somehow it was important and popular enough for her to remember. So I went, and tried to find out. Faneuil hall has been a meeting ...

    Boston Duck Tours

    25 reviews

    A fantastic and unique way to get oriented with the city: you'll be driven around in an amphibious vehicle, seeing some of the best and most notable sights of Boston on land and in the water. It's a memorable experience (especially for first-timers) to seamlessly sail right into the Charles River without changing vehicles.
