Boston in March, 2013

Jump to last reply

I posted a thread before about Boston, but now it looks like Hubby checked his calendar. So we're looking at the end of March 2013. We're hoping to fly into Boston for 4-5 days, train to NYC for 4 days, then fly out of JFK. Or the other way around.

So now I'm looking for hotel ideas in the Boston area. Hubby's hoping for $150 or less per night. I want to be close to a T station. Reading threads and looking at maps, staying outside Boston seems doable with the T. Any ideas?

We're basically into walking around and looking at things. Museums, gardens, stores, buildings, people, etc. We want to see the Freedom Trail, MIT, Harvard, etc. I thought Hubby might enjoy a tour of Fenway Park and I saw that America's Test Kitchen is relatively nearby, so I'd have to check their schedule of tours (Hubby has a crush on Bridget). Maybe a tour of the Revolutionary War sites? Hubby is highly interested in that though I know there was NO WAY his family was in it.

We'll also need suggestions for food. We don't drink alcohol or party late (yeah, bo-ring, I know). I may have a shellfish allergy--I never had it but reacted to a medication. Hubby likes clam chowder.

You all were of great help this year for our DC/NYC vacation. I'm hoping for help with this one.

I've never used priceline. I'm a bit risk-averse for bidding on an unknown, but am willing to try if I actually knew what to do.
