    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Boston is one big Walking City.The attractions are not that far from each other and also since you would be beter in taking the Hop On Hop Off Bus than a regular tour bus to maximize the number of attractions to be seen and picture, better have a comfortable walking shoes like the new running and walking shoes becoming popular nowadays and even cross training rubber shoes, so that your feet will not be that much tired from all those walking and hopping on and off the trolley bus.

  • Bring Boots in the Winter

    LL Bean boots, a fave of Real Bostonians

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring good waterproof boots in the winter. The streets can be slushy and snowy! Everyone wears boots in the winter. It's not even uncommon to see women wearing a full business suit with skirt and all and a pair of big klunky boots!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Make sure you have fairly comfortable shoes, because you will probably be doing a lot of walking.

    Photo Equipment: Camera is a must because of all the nice arcitecture around.

    Miscellaneous: One thing that is a riot is the percentage% of people you will see wearing black. don't worry about it.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Wear shoes that you can walk comfortably in...I noticed also that people did dress casual, but they looked nice...leave the tattered t-shirts at home and wear a belt boys.

    Photo Equipment: Definitely pack a camera with you--you never know when a prime photo opportunity will arrive.

    Miscellaneous: Bring a light jacket in summer and warmer stuff for winter. Even in summer it still gets a bit nippy at nite.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring good walking shoes! If wearing sandals gives you blisters, bring your sneakers/running shoes. Wear any shoes that are comfortable because Boston's a walking city. I brought my sturdy combat boots so I was fine. It's simple planning, however a lot of people forget about how much walking they're about to do.
    Photo: My group of friends walking along the Freedom Trail in Charlestown... we had done at least 2 miles of walking by then. Photo by me!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Good walking shoes - Boston is a walker's city. Take some kind of rain gear. It was cool and rainy when we were there in June. The nights can be cool anytime.
