Off the Beaten Path in Boston and Beyond

Jump to last reply

I know most tourists in Boston want to see the typical sights, such as:

Duck Tour
Freedom Trail
Boston Common/Public Gardens
Harvard Sq
Museum of Fine Arts/Gardner Museum
Fenway
Museum of Science

I'm curious if anyone is interested in listing some off-the-beaten-path sites in Boston? Of course, I'm partly doing this for my own interests, but maybe some repeat visitors to Boston may want to know what else they can see?

Please share your hidden gems if you would.

I'll start with a few.
