1st time in Boston --need advice

Jump to last reply

We once spent two nights in downtown Philadelphia and took in the historical sites. That was a lot of fun and we'd like to do the same in Boston, except we could stay three or four nights. We liked being in the city and being able to walk to many of the things we wanted to see. Where we stayed seemed safe and we could walk to restaurants at night. Our Boston visit will focus around history, but if there are other things we need to see, we'd love to know about them. An historical hotel would be great, but we'd probably choose a Holiday Inn if there's a significant price difference. We enjoy local eateries and good food. I've been focused on another part of our trip and haven't done any Boston research yet, so any help you can give with what to see or where to stay or eat will be much appreciated. Thanks.
