An alien in Boston

Jump to last reply

after a long time dreaming in know Boston... my chance finally arrived. I already did many research on the web (thank you yk for the money-saving tips topic) and now I have a ton of doubts because I will have only about 8 days to explore and maybe i'm not going to have other chance like this because I live too far away in Brazil. Well, this is also a especial ocasion for me because it will be my Honeymoon travel, so I realy would like to have some personalized tips.

That said, I should point out that I don't want to spend a forttune because I've spent too much with the wedding party, the flights and the accomodations.

I booked a room in Sheraton Back Bay Hotel with check-in in June 28 e check-out in July 6. I'm planning to arrive in Boston at June 28 4:00PM by Amtrak's train after others 8 days in New York City (my first time in NYC too). My departure will be at July 6 5:35PM.

I'm excited in see the july 4th celebrations and the Boston pops fireworks. After viewing John Adams HBO's series grew in me the desire to know more about USA history, so the Freedom trail is a must have tour.

Also, I desire to see a Red Sox game. Definitely I'm not a big fan of baseball... even know the rules, but I want to fell this culture expirience and the Bostonian way of life. Two Cheap seats at Fenway fulfill my expectations. I Need tips in how to buy and related things.

Because of the honeymoon, I'm also looking for some romantic activities. In this matter I'm very insecure of what and when to do. Thinking about a evening dinner in the Top of the Hub, but I'm afraid that it will be much expensive. Others not overpriced restaurants would be good, preference with relaxed enviroments. We like italian food (pizza, pasta), seafood (shrimp), mexican, chinese, american and others.

There are so many things that I want to do... places to visit... tours!!! Fenway Park, TD Garden, Museum of Science, Filenes basement, Museum of Fine Arts, Samuel Adams Brewery, Public Library, North End, Trinity Church, John Hancock building, USS Constitution, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston Public Garden, Boston Common, Holocaust Memorial, Beacon Hill, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Aquarium, Old North Church, Bunker Hill Monument, Granary Burying Ground, Neybury Street, Boston Pops, The Paul Revere House, John Hancock Tower, The Big Dig Tunnels, Pizzeria Regina, Boston Ballet, Museum of Bad Art, Duck Tours, Harvard Campus, MIT and so on.

I don't want to go back with the feeling that it could be better. I beg for advices on how to enjoy the city at maximum.

Pardon for my poor english and thank you for reading til this end.
