Trip Report short trip to boston

Jump to last reply

My SO had a conference in Boston and I went along. We stayed at the Westin at the convention center

The airport is very close to town. we took a cab in and it cost $25 with a lot of traffic and $15 with no traffic.

the weather was great. clear and brisk, not too cold. one downside of staying at the convention center is that it is not close to anything. a bit of a walk to south station and the real downtown/financial district. And did i mention that Boston hotels are expensive? the convention rate was over $300./.

the first night we went to legal seafood at the waterfront. It was nice and at 8pm not too crowded on a thursday. but pretty expensive, particularly wine.. .

on first day i wandered around freedom trail. I enjoyed king's chapel (where they have booths instead of another type of seating) , the old burial grounds and the old state house.(where they have an informative tour about the revolution). there also were a number of guides giving guided walks around the area, which seemd informative whenever i ran into one.

the next day was devoted to the museum of fine arts. I got myself to the Park St. T station and got onto the green line to the museum. I always like riding public transit to get another view of the people in a city. the museum was great. and i got in for free for being a patron at my local museum. a large number of paintings by copley and a room devoted to Sargent. it had a large number of varied exhibits-even a display of conservation work going on on some works, also there were numerous contemporary pieces. and a striking sculpture right on front of the museum entitled "the great spirit."

we stayed until the end (5pm) adn got on the T with milions of others to go back into town. we went back to park st, and went to "Petit Robert" right across from macy's. it was very good and hit the spot- i had salmon and enjoyed it.
