Trip Report My Boston weekend...killing time near MGH

Jump to last reply

My husband is currently at Mass General so I've been hanging out in Boston for the past few days. Some thoughts:

1. Everyone on here is correct when they say no car is needed. The city is so walkable and the T is great. Driving isn't the disaster it's made out to be though. You just need to have fun with and laugh at yourself and your confused GPS. You need to be aggressive, and those taxi drivers are insane.

2. Hotels: I spend one day touring some hotels in the area. The Liberty is great if you have someone staying at Mass General. And it's right on the red line. The whole "old jail" theme is fun. It's right at Charles St which has some really cute shops and antique stores. My favorite hotel I went to was the Fairmont Copley Plaza. Beautiful hotel and great location for walking around the city. Wasn't a fan of the Westin across the street. The Taj was nice, not amazing, but has a wonderful location. I also enjoyed The Lenox.

3. Shopping: Charles St for boutique-y places, Newbury St for high end names.

4. Food: JP Licks on Charles St makes very good ice cream...not the most amazing I've ever had, but very good. Panificio on Charles St looks to have a nice brunch. Wasn't crazy about their sandwiches...the bread is weak. The tomato soup was nice. LA Burdick makes delicious chocolate, thought the hot drinking chocolate is too rich. I need to share it with someone. I also really enjoyed my cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes.

Heading back tomorrow...not sure where I'll go.
