Don't forget to sample the local brews!
Fondest memory: We drove to the local T-stop and took the subway into town. I wasn’t feeling well, with some sort of stomach virus resulting from the pulled pork, too much pumpkin or a deadly combination of both. I was weak and lackluster and though we walked around and tried to enjoy ourselves, it was just not to be. Doreen was too full of impressions to truly soak it all in and with a sick boyfriend, she was the one to suggest leaving early. Once in the car, I got feverish and was happy to have her as my pilot. I helped get her on the Interstate back to New Jersey and nodded out in a pool of sweat. It wasn’t the end of the trip nor the dream visit to Boston that I had hoped for but that didn’t dampen our spirit too much. When a trip is as magical as the one we had just had, a sour ending does not contaminate the overall flavor. And that nice taste was still too sweet on our lips to do anything but make us smile.
Favorite thing: One of the original restaurants of this chain of rock and roll memorabilia strewn eating establishments. A Hard Rock Cafe is a Hard Rock Cafe anyplace you go; its known for its uniformity. So I wouldn't recommend eating here, unless you really, really take comfort in uninspiring consistency when it comes to food. But its hard not to notice the familiar logo of this place which stands out among the old brick buildings of downtown Boston.
The Scooper Bowl is an annual fundraising event for the Jimmy Fund. The nation’s largest all-you-can-eat ice cream festival takes place for 3 days in June. It's located at Boston's City Hall Plaza, near Government Center T stop.

Eat some seafood! Eat more seafood!!!
Go to Chinatown for some traditional Chinese food.
See the historical sites. There is so much history in Boston that one can get overwhelmed. Take in all you can and plan on going back for more.
Fondest memory: Too many to name.
