Jane Powers says: No better place to see the city skyline than from the harbor. Take a low cost cruise on one of the Boston Harbor Island Ferries. You can see the city, picnic, hike some of Boston’s historic outer islands, and ferry between islands. Plan your return for sunset, it’s magic!
Gerri Taylor says: The Boston Pops Orchestra is great fun. Get a table for a group of people and enjoy an evening. The Orchestra is only a few blocks from the Marriott, Westin, and Sheraton hotels.
And who would miss a Red Sox game? See the famous Green Monster!
Also, take a Swan Boat tour for a very short ride on the pond in the Boston Public Garden.
Sharon Yardley says: How about a night out at the Institute of Contemporary Art on the waterfront? It is a great setting with great restaurants nearby and the waterfront is unbelievable.
Martha Farve says: The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is a beautiful Italian villa that was built to hold the family’s personal art collection. It’s a wonderful small museum and is located a block away from the Fine Arts Museum, another city gem.
Leah McKinnon-Howe says: Take advantage of Boston’s many musical and cultural offerings during your stay in Boston by checking out www.artsboston.org. Something for everyone can be found at this site.
