Boston, Massachusetts ideas

Am planning a 5 night break in Boston in August. Any ideas apart from the well-known Heritage Trail which sounds fun ?

Only thing I'm definitely not interested in is any American sports

Cheers (oh yes forgot the bar of that name is here )

Don't go to the Cheers bar as it's really not worth it. Be sure to pop over to Cambridge and have a look around the Harvard Yard.

Where are you staying? The area around Boylston has plenty of shops, bars, etc, whilst if you want a 'true flavour', head down towards the South side.

Oh, and you can go for a stroll down by the Marina - if you're a fan of the Departed, you can see bits where it was filmed.

Ditto re "Don't visit Cheers Bar". It's only the outside anyway.

Ice Hockey is worth a watch despite your aversion. Boston Garden.

Aquarium was good last time I was there.

Find Bertucci's pizza restaurant. None better. Think there's more than 1.

Yes to visiting Cambridge, easy to get to and Harvard Yard a must. Not sure if the Widener library (part of Harvard) is open to the public but it's well worth a visit.

The Museum of Fine Arts is tremendous, worth going just to see the Georgia O'Keefe's, brilliant.

Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall - great places to eat lobster and good clam chowder. The trolley buses are fun and a good way of getting around. Gorgeous city, one of my favourites!

Even if you're not into US sports, I reckon you'd get caught up in the baseball at Fenway. Just go for the food, drink and atmosphere - that alone is worth experiencing at least once.

That's clearly Chicago and London. But on a whim I've decided to go to Boston later this year.

It's not really like any other US city. I love it. Hope to go there with the old man next year for a few days.

In Chicago at the moment, it is indeed a truly fantastic city, right up there with the best of them.

One of the few places I would consider moving to.

I absolutely love Boston but like any city it depends what you're interested in.

For the best view go to the top of the Prudential Centre (one of the tallest of the skyscrapers). Definitely take a duck tour (the city is known for them even though they have them in a number of cities now).

The heritage trail is pretty good but depending how interested you are it may be worth getting a formal tour of some of the historical stuff. We got one from the pavilion on Boston Common (from a man in period dress) which was brilliant. Other than that there are lots of sites dotted all around the city which you can visit yourself and many have free written guides. For more modern history I can say the JFK museum is really brilliant but a bit out of town (though they run free shuttle buses from the T).

Quincy Market is a really cool place to visit, grab a coffee or something and just sit around for a bit. It's right in the middle of town near lots of sights too. There are always good shows and stuff on, stage ones and comedians like any big city.

You can also take loads of good and interesting boat tours and there are little islands with Civil War forts and gardens and stuff that are worth visiting. I actually did a whale watching tour from their once which was surprisingly good.

Finally, I will just say that there is nothing like a night at fenway! I know you may not love baseball but it's definitely worth going to a baseball game at least once if you never have and there is no place better than Fenway to do it!

Hope some of that helps, feel free to ask for any more advice if you want it!

Was there in September .Loved it .All the places mentioned plus Boston Common where there is a memorial to the 54th Massachuesets the soldiers from the film Glory.Go to Sam Adams brewery .Good little tour and a great piss up. If you go on the USS Constitution at the end of the Freedom Trail take ID or they won't let you on.Some great bars in Boston if you like that sort of thing.Luckily I did ,and I found beer in the US pretty good value.

Why don't you go down to the harbour and have a 'Tea Party'?

Seriously have to agree with this. Whatever your perceptions are about baseball from the TV, forget it, it's a very different experience live.

I am not a fan myself, but went to the White Sox game last night and had a very enjoyable evening, baseball is a very interesting experience.

Chicago is amazing too.

London, well... now I'm out of there I can never see myself going back. Most overrated city in the world? Very possibly. (Same for New York.)

(Still a very proud Saaaaf Londoner though.)
