Ina: I see. I was mostly interested in learning about public transportation from the airport to city center. Some cities have great public transportation from the airport, and I wanted to know if Boston was part of that club.

Our last vacation was in Vancouver and we stayed downtown near the port. When we disembarked from the ship, the lines for the cabs were outrageous (we later learned that passengers literally stayed in that line for three hours waiting for a cab!) We ended up getting out of the line-to-nowhere and rolled our luggage to our hotel. When it was time to go home, we got a cab to the port and took their train to the airport. Easy peasy. It was something that literally everyone recommended and was a cheap and easy way to get to the airport.

Sounds like Uber/Lyft is the way to go when it comes to Boston. Thanks for that.

Re: Teatro, I saw their menu. It looks good, but we'll have to pass on the duck since I'm a vegetarian and hubby is a vegan. ;-)

"One thing I thought we'd do is visit the Boston Tea Party Museum. Other than that, I haven't made any plans. Thanks for any help you'd like to offer."

Boston has some good museums. The Gardner, the MFA, the ICA, the Harvard art museums, if you like art.
The unique Glass Flowers at Harvard.
Of course, the Freedom Trail is the big attraction.
Take a ride on the iconic swanboats and see the duckling sculptures.
Fanueil Hall is fun for people watching, street performers and an assortment of foods.
There is a quirky glass world map to walk through.
Some of the squares (Harvard, Union, Davis) frequented by students are fun.
Lots of Italian restaurants and pastry shops in the North End.
If you Google for Vegan restaurants Boston, there are over 100 places that come up, in and around Boston, many of which can be reached by the T (public transport).

And the water isn't that dirty anymore. (Although I do remember if the sailboats capsized in the Charles Rive, in the era of that song, we had to wash the sails first---before they took us to get tetanus shots! LOL) "Love that dirty water. Oh, Boston, you're my home."

Have fun.

Samba: haha! Thanks for the advice, especially for vegan food recommendations! I'm going to look into these places you've mentioned.
