First time to Boston - will this work?

Jump to last reply

Hello - my husband and I will be in Boston for 4 nights and Rockport for 2, June 7 - 12. I cannot believe how much there is to do and see in Boston - I had no idea. As I mentioned in another post - my husband had knee replacement surgery in March. This may slow him down slightly. I'm trying not to plan something for every single minute we're gone - but it's very hard because there's so much I want to see. How does this look? How are our restaurant choices - am I leaving anything out that we just have to do?

Day 1
Arrive Sunday late afternoon. Check into hotel (we're staying in Newton at Hotel Indigo). Sunday evening take Boston Harbor Sunset Cruise. Have dinner at Giacomos.

Day 2
Take Beantown Trolley Tour. We want to visit Faneuil Hall, the USS Constitution, Paul Revere House, Old North Church and can hop on and off.
Question: What to do for lunch? I've read that the food at Faneuil Hall isn't that great. I also love old buildings and think the Omni Hotel looks neat. I was thinking perhaps the Last Hurrah would be good for lunch? Looks like they have good sandwiches and appetizers.
Dinner at Atlantic Fish Co. and maybe some shopping in the area - I think this is near Copley Square where there's good shopping?

Day 3
Breakfast at Charlies Sandwich Shoppe because we enjoy diners. Shop at Harvard Square. Maybe go to the MIT Museum. Head over to JFK Library. End with an early dinner at Myers + Chang (we love asian food). Or should we head to Chinatown?

Day 4
Day trip to Plymouth to go to Plimouth Plantation and Mayflower II. Need a suggestion for a light lunch?? How long will this take? Do people spend an entire day at the Plantation? For dinner am thinking about Solstice in Kingston or Fat Cat in Quincy - one of my goals is to have lobster mac and cheese at least once and I hear they have a good version of it.

Day 5
Check out of hotel and head to Rockport, stopping in Salem on the way. VIsit Peabody Essex Museum. We are staying at the Beach and King Street Bed and Breakfast. Need to grab a quick lunch somewhere on the way. Looking for a special place for dinner in/near Rockport because it's my birthday. Am thinking about Franklin Cafe or Duckworth. Duckworth's menu looks limited. But welcome any other suggestions!

Day 6
Relax! Want to go on a whale watching tour. Nothing else planned. Promised my husband good fried seafood - Clam Box or Farnham's for dinner? Suggestions?

Day 7
Check out of B&B and start trip back to Michigan. Thinking about taking a detour to Portland Maine. Or is it pretty much the same feel as Rockport/Gloucester area? If we do stop we will have lunch at Duckfat.

Thanks for you suggestions!
