Randy--there are TONS of things to see and do in Boston, so please post your interests here so we can further help you. As far as the No-Name is concerned, it has no-frills atmosphere, and the seafood is good and pretty inexpensive and takes CASH only. You sit at long tables w/folding chairs and drink out of plastic cups. I would definatly recommend it if you are looking for a casual, inexpensive seafood dinner, certainly NOT a fine dining experience! Hope this helps!

I wouldn't miss the Public Gardens (even in fall and winter), Louisburg Sq. on Beacon Hill, or Harvard Sq.

Randy--For "T" info, check out www.mbta.com You can buy visitor's passes-A one day pass is $6. Fanieul Hall/Quincy Market is probably what you are thinking as the "wharf". It's a shopping/dining/entertainment complex. There are plenty of bars by Fenway-Cask
'N Flagon, Boston Beer Works, Who's on First, Boston Billiards, Jillians etc. If you're interested in US History, walk the Freedom Trail. It starts right near the state house. Have a great time!
