Wicked Good . . . Boston
There are many places throughout the United States that are steeped in history and worth visiting, but one of my favorite historic cities to visit is Boston, Massachusetts. With so much to do in Boston, I've listed some of the must see places during your stay.
- Old Town Trolley Tours. One of the best trolley tours in Boston with narration by the trolley driver. There are 20 stops including Paul Revere's House, Faneuil Hall, Cheers, Copley Square, State House, and so much more. Get on and off the trolley as many times as you like to further investigate the sites. Don't want to get off at any of the stops? The tour takes approximately two hours from start to finish if you stay on the trolley the entire time.
- Union Oyster House. One of the most famous seafood restaurants in the city, many famous people frequented the Union Oyster House including JFK. You may luck out and get to sit in his favorite booth!
- John F. Kennedy Library & Museum Situated by the water, the John F. Kenneday Library & Museum is a little out of the way, but it is definitely a must see. Learn about JFK and his family's life.
- Boston Common & Public Garden. Established in 1837, the Public Garden is the first public botanical garden. The Boston Common was established in 1634 and is the first public park. You might recognize it from the original movie The Parent Trap.
- Cheers . . . where everyone knows your name. Are you a fan of the television show Cheers? Stop by the bar that inspired the television show, and the exterior is shown in the opening credits of the show.
- The Shops at Prudential Center. Looking for a great place to shop? Then the shops at Prudential Center is a great mall to meet your needs. Two hotels attach to this mall, one of which is where one of the victims of the Craigslist Killer was found. I was actually staying at the other hotel when this happened and was awoken by the sirens of emergency vehicles converging on the other hotel.
