    Head Of The Charles Regatta

    2 Gerrys Landing Road, Cambridge, MA
    5
    76 reviews

    HOCR takes over Cambridge -literally the entire river front- one weekend every October. The course is three miles long, so it's great to walk along the course to check out all the tents with food, samples and swag, or just find a bridge to cheer from. Some spectators watch for crashes under the Weeks Footbridge or the hairpin turn before ...

    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 :) )

    The Freedom Trail winds through most of Boston, so chances are that you will encounter the brick path at some point. There are some awesome things to see along the trail that are all too easily overlooked.

    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.

    There are so many things in the MFA, and with the new Art of the Americas wing, there is so much space, a guide is needed to get the most out of a visit. Our docent from Context Travel was excellent and able to cover the range of highlights of the collection including brief stops at the Japanese and ancient ...

    North End

    Hanover Street and Prince Street, Boston, MA 02113
    4.5
    34 reviews

    This is a slice of Italy, right in Boston! Great cafes and restaurants. Hannover Street is the main tourist draw, but you will find better, less expensive and more authentic food on one of the many side streets. After dinner, don't forget your pastries from Mike's (if you're willing to wait in line) or Modern.

    MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE: THIS IS A TOURIST TRAP! That being said, its exactly what you would expect for a touristy kinda spot. A lot of ridiculous souvenir shops, a few regular retail outlets, a number of restaurants, street performers, etc etc etc. It is a great place to relax a little bit during the summer as well. ...

    I'm ashamed to admit that - I've been in Boston for almost 10 years and this is the first time I've been to the Public Garden and seen the famous Duckies. The Garden neighbors Boston Commons and it is incredible beautiful, even as we are just entering the early months of the Spring. The beautiful little lake, the perfectly placed ...

    "Quack, Quack!" There is a reason why this is on the to-do list of many Boston tourist. After living in Boston for so many years, I finally went on one. The amphibious vehicle (ducks) from WWII along with a hilariously funny and outgoing tour guide takes you through the historical parts, modern parts, sport parts of the heart of Boston. ...

    Charles River Esplanade

    Charles River has always been one of my favorite places. It's vibrant with activities both on water and in the surrounding areas, but at the same time serene and peaceful. The dividing point between Boston and Cambridge, Charles river bridges the historical city with its academic counterpart. In the summer, sailing boats and crew teams are regulars on the river. ...

    Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

    An eclectic art museum of high caliber yet in an intimate setting. Though very close to the Museum of Fine Arts and may be the lesser known, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum shines with an unique personality of its own and its former owner has done something rather amazing in constructing this museum. Once you step across the hall way to ...
