    I went to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park! Fabulous! (for this life-time Sox Fan, who grew up in Cambridge) Don't take a "tour," go to a game!

    Bunker Hill is in a lovely part of Charlestown. The USS Constitution was not easily accessible. The North End church pews and info was interesting. The best part of the Paul Revere house is the info downstairs after the gift shop before you exit. Faneuil Hall neighborhood is a little busy with tourists and the hall was closed for a private event but we went back and it was very pretty.

    In a city where history lives on every block, the Museum of Fine Arts ties the city's different eras together.

    In addition, artworks from, across the world have found their way into the museum's showcases. From ancient Egyptian pharaoh's tombs to modern French Impressionism, the museum is laid for easy walking.

    This production is top notch. As a history minor and retired teacher, I was really impressed! One was made to feel like you were there when the Boston Tea Party happened with actors in costumes, movies, artifacts, reenactments, holograms, and more. I don't want to give away any of the unique surprises.

    Bostons little Italy. Easy to walk but would be difficult to drive with very narrow streets and one ways. Many great Italian restaurants. One of the only place not infiltrated by Dunkin’ Donuts.

    Lighthouse Cruise was fantastic. Captain put boat in perfect position to capture some great shots. Crew was friendly and went out of their way to make everything perfect. Timing of cruise allowed for some nice sunset shots.

    Boston Public Garden is a lovely and vibrant place. I was staying next to the Garden and took advantage of going for a walk every day while I was there. It's a bucolic place, and can also be quite lively, like when there was a relay race event there. I just love the public garden part of the Commons, and the ducks statue is heartwarming.

    Born into a life of luxury derived from a successful New England family, this man instead opted for a life of public service.

    The library set along the scenic Boston harbor shoreline; chronicles the life of the immediate JFK 's generational family.

    The museum docents are more than welcoming and are proud to show off and explain the many facets of the museum.

    We booked onto the Sam Signature experience which included a stop in the active brewing area and then a visit to a sampling room. Beer samples were provided as part of the experience and we were able to keep the glassware on the day. All the staff at Sam Adams were really friendly and engaging. Overall, we enjoyed the experience.

    We especially enjoyed the explanatory boards to better appreciate and understand the art on the ceilings and walls.

    I was surprised how large this museum is. My 4 year old had a blast. We stayed for 4 hours and didn't get to finish the whole museum.

    A lot of comments about homeless people, we went through this park several times over the course of a week and didn't really see any at all. Nobody harassed us, it felt very safe and welcoming. A really pretty park that is worth going through with some sights and activities. My kids loved the little wading pool at the frog pond

    Back in September 2021 I visited on a Monday which is the only day the ship is closed to visitors. Visiting the ship is accessed through the Charlestown visitor center. Only so many visitors are allowed at one time. If four visitors leave the ship, four more will be allowed in. Once aboard the ship a visitor can spend as much as they want.

    First is the upper deck which has about 1/3 the cannns, with a total of 52. I stated at the Bow-from-working my to the Stern-rear- going from side to side. The most difficult part of a tour is going down a level-there are two lower levels. The easiest way down the stairs is to BACK down, hanging onto the two ropes.

    The first level down is much like the main deck, with more cannons. The most notable site will be the captain's quarters-which is not accessible, just able to view, yet has excellent lighting for photos. THis level and the next level down has five sites that are part of daily life which are: Sickbay, Sleeping at Sea-the sailors slept in white hammocks slung between rafters-the Magizine in Battle, the Wardroom-officers quuarters-and the Exercising the Gums. On one table has several difference types of cannon balls and unusual types of weapon a cannon can use in battle.

    There were 4-5 staff-possibly marine/navy-that will answer any questions. One man my qyiestion of what is the reason 'What is the reason for a Blue flag with White stars?' He explaind that the flag represents that the ship-any ship-is at peace during while on duty.

    My tour lasted about 50 minutes. A visit is highly recommended for a history lesson.

    Took the trolley to Beacon Hill and enjoyed the change of scenery. Took a stroll and on the waterway and enjoyed the architecture of the community.
