    I'll be in Boston for the very first time from June 7th thru the 13th. The main reason I'm going is to attend my oldest nephew's college commencement on the 9th, but I'll have plenty of additional time to sightsee, and I'm hoping some of you may have some hints & suggestions. I'm flying into Logan, and won't be renting a car- so any places accessible via the subway especially would be helpful.

    Thanks.

    I used to travel to boston several times a year in an old job. Every thing is accessible by subway - in fact cars are a menace in downtown boston!

    Fanuel hall(cant spell)/ quincy market. there is an old restaurant in quincy market that I cant recall the name of - it is a family style restaurant, community seating - and the waitresses abuse you. best boston cream pie in town,
    Great italian food in the north end - close to the old north church (paul revere).

    Great seafood all over town - especially on the pier - my favorite is the Daily Catch (it has been a few years but I assume it is still there). A very good chain of seafood restaurants is Legal Seafoods. If you want to drop big bucks on a meal Locke - Ober, it is in an old mens club (jacket required I think)
    You can walk the liberty trail, see old iron sides etc.

    Boston is truly a great town to visit - have fun

    On the Freedom Irail, you can walk right up to Paul Revere's grave. It's tucked away back inside a very old cemetary, you can't miss it.

    Two blocks from of Faniuel Hall is the N.E. Aquarium, always worth a visit. Also right outside of the Hall is the N.E. Holocaust Memorial. I highly recommend a walk thru that one.

    The subway system in Boston is excellent. If you can read a map, you'll be all set. Any attendant will tell you what line, (Red, Gree, Blue, Orange) you need. Its still only $1.25. I would have to strongly discourage you from driving in downtown Boston if you never have before. The roads are based on Revelutionary warpaths. [​IMG]
