Hubby wants to see Boston. I know nothing about such a trip.

Jump to last reply

We're just in preliminary stages, like, getting basic information. We're trying to enjoy life more, collecting memories instead of possessions, while still being careful with money. No kids, but we've had a couple of health scares that have fortunately turned out to be, surprisingly, not really anything.

We don't drink alcohol, don't "party hearty," and I'm likely allergic to shellfish. So that info is pretty much wasted on us. We like to walk around and look at things: museums, shopping areas, people. Yeah, we're boring, but we don't mind.

He's thinking October, about 10 days, a Tuesday through the following Thursday. And adding either NYC (because we had only 3.5 days there a few months ago) or maybe elsewhere in New England. I know, pretty vague. He wants to see all the historical stuff. God, you'd think he had family at Lexington and Concord with his fascination of American History!

I'm not sure about driving in Boston. We don't mind sticking to subways, having done okayon NYC and DC. But if we go anywhere else (besides the train to NYC), I assume we'd need to drive.

So, with all that lack of detail, any help on what we should do, see, stay, etc?
