    Head Of The Charles Regatta

    77 reviews

    HOCR takes over Boston and 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 ...

    Freedom Trail

    63 reviews

    As a kid, the Freedom Trail just seemed like another "museum stop" that my dad would drag me to, but as an adult I've come to appreciate the unique way it educates people about Boston. The 2.5 mile red trail leads you to roughly 16 different historic sites downtown, and can be self-guided or led by a tour guide (often ...

    Cape Cod Melody Tent

    57 reviews

    We saw the Beach Boys live here. It was an amazing show and a fun venue. The tickets are reasonable, but book in advance (we're talking Spring). There are a lot of family friendly acts as well as some great alt-rockers. We saw Ani Difranco there and it was a really great concert. The stage revolves so no seats are ...

    While you very well may encounter a good number of overprivileged yuppies and self-important professor types wandering around the square, you shouldn't let this stop you from paying the place a visit. The international community here is astounding, which makes for a uniquely diverse neighborhood with tons of different shops and eateries catering to both the stingiest and most indulgent ...

    Museum of Fine Arts

    38 reviews

    I absolutely loved the Museum of Fine Arts. I came here several years ago for the Edward Hopper exhibit when I was backpacking down the East Coast. Here was a guy who recognized the simple poignancy of singular commonplace things. "His quiet, yet riveting, pictures of people in their apartments, offices, and hotel rooms express both a sense of urban ...

    I'm taking off a star, since this is maybe one of the most crowded, touristy spots on the planet, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a good time when I come to Faneuil Hall. There energy there is off the charts. And while the place is crawling with vendors trying to make a buck, I find ...

    North End

    Boston's Italian district is renowned for its delicious pastries, particularly cannoli. Walking through the buildings and their alleys is a wonderful experience, bringing back memories I obviously never had of the old world. Paul Revere's house is here as well, and visitors are invited to visit it. Head to Mike's and get a "lobster roll." Hint: It's not really filled ...

    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.
