Even though there's the freedom trail, there's a ton of other stuff to see in Boston, and most of it's out of the way.. We got lost several times while exploring Boston, so luckily we had several maps to refer to!
Fondest memory: I loved walking around Harvard (Even though some pesky police offiicer wanted to take my camera away from me)..
If you don`t know how to parallel park or are not really good at it, DON`T drive in Boston!?@All the street parking is parallel parking. If you are too slow to park & you are blocking the cars behind you from moving forward they will honk at you. I`m not kidding. There are costly garages that you can park in though.
Best bet: take public transportation. $1/ride. No hassles!
Boston is one of the rare cities in in the US where you can really stroll the different neighborhoods. The weather being on your side of course.
Fondest memory: I particularly enjoyed walking all around Boston, form the North End, to Beacon Hill, passing through the Financial District, Chinatown, the South End and others.
Favorite thing: I'm still fascinated by everything I see in Boston and just love walking everywhere I go. When you walk, you don't even need to pay attention to "OneWay" street signs. You also see places you wouldn't if you were driving and dealing with the traffic and the pedestrians "Jay Walking" in front of you or trying to read the sign to get where you're going. Another reason to take the "T" and then walk to your destination.
Favorite thing: This is just a picture of the visitor's information center that is located on the Financial District side of Boston Commons. Stop in, get a free map and some advice and go explore the city!
