Extremely Quick Tour of Boston

Jump to last reply

We are flying into Boston in a few weeks (noon arrival), and friends suggested taking a water taxi from the airport to downtown, having lunch there, then getting a trolley tour around town for an hour or two. Then we could rent a car downtown and drive out to Springfield,MA, where we need to be by the end of the day (for a family event).
Questions:
Is the Museum of Fine Arts downtown or in an easy-to-get-to area where we could drive on our way out of town?
What casual seafood restaurant would you recommend downtown?
What about the "Duck tour"...anybody ever go on that one?

We are looking to spend about 4 hours doing this and have been to Boston many times growing up and in the college years (but not been back in the past 25 years!)
Your suggestions appreciated...
