    Boston Common

    86 reviews

    It was a hot day and I found myself in Boston Common. Kids were playing in the nearby playground and outdoor fountain, and the financial district sat waiting for me ahead. A musician was performing several feet away, serving as a wonderful soundtrack to my afternoon. It was then that I fell asleep on the grass and woke up with ...

    Harvard University

    47 reviews

    Arguably the world's best university and certainly the richest. I work in the 'other Cambridge' in the UK, but it's hard not to be impressed by both Harvard's resources and the way it uses them. Lots of beautiful buildings as well and plenty for tourists.

    New England Aquarium

    45 reviews

    I'm not really a fan of aquariums per se, but this one is very impressive and I think more thoughtfully curated than most. Lots of exhibits for kids and teens.

    Museum of Fine Arts

    I can't stay away from MFA. They have an incredible collection! I've also been quite taken with some of the recent exhibitions, including glass artist Chihuly, a 60's fashion retrospective, and photography from women in the Arab world. Just stunning!

    USS Constitution Museum

    39 reviews

    We got to the USS Constitution a little too late to join the last tour, but the museum was still open. Admission is donations only. They have an exhibit with model ships people built, which are just amazing! They are very detailed and impressive. Kids would have fun upstairs experiencing what it would be like to scrub the floors of ...

    North End

    37 reviews

    A visit to Boston merits a dinner in the North End, a far more authentic Italian-American neighborhood than New York's Little Italy. Most of the restaurants you walk into are a good bet, and be sure to stop in one of the Italian style bars for an espresso or grappa after dinner.

    Boston Duck Tours

    24 reviews

    I didn't realise that I would have sooooo much fun with this tour! Its not only for the kids. As a matter of fact there were more adults during the tour :) I had wanted so much to volunteer to drive the "amphibian" but to shy to volunteer. The driver who guided us even sounded like a duck "quack"

    The Boston Public Library

    23 reviews

    The BPL is comprised of two connected buildings: the old library and the new library. The new one is a stereotypical city library, and nothing too special. The old library, however, is a beautiful piece of architecture and resembles a museum more than a house of books. You can take a tour to learn about the various marble statues, marvel ...
