Pictures of what to try in Boston I liked these pics and reviews
The best advice I can give for an outsider coming to visit Boston: hire a guide! Per hour. Several days in a row. $65/hr. Next time I will plan a 6 hour tour with a guide.
It’s worth it. I’m not kidding, nor am I loaded with extra cash.
There’s oodles of history in Boston. Oodles. A plethora. Books and books worth.
In 4 days, we missed some of the most important sites on our “Must See” list. If we had hired a guide, we would have seen everything, we would have known at what we were looking and why AND had extra time to eat more cannolli in North End at Mike’s Pastry.
The North End was our favorite, besides Cape Cod, but that’s not really Boston. North End includes a section of the Freedom Trail, including Paul Revere’s house, several churches, and many many plaques with historic info. But, what is most fun about North End is all the great food.
We really enjoyed:
- North End
- The Museum of Science x 2
- The Blue Man Group!
- The Freedom Trail
- Harvard Square
- Walking around
What we didn’t quite dig… see this other post How NOT to Visit Boston with Family.
