A travel journal
to Boston by lovetogo
Quote: Boston is one of the most pedestrian friendly places to visit there is. There is so much to see and do. Particulary if you are interested in American History or fine dining or the arts. The "T" (as the locals call the subway) makes the city especially accessible.

There are endless places with international cuisines, getting quickly taken over by chains, so hurry and support its individuality. It is home to a number of universities, most notably Harvard. I love just walking through the gates of Harvard and the tour is well worth the time, plus it is free. Of course, Radcliffe is right across the street and has one of the most beautiful courtyards and architecture to be found.
There are some specialty stores, and funky shops which the last time I looked were not part of a chain. Some are pricey, but window shopping is forever fun.
Strolling towards the famous Harvard News stand at any given time, particularly summer nights, there are protesters of all sorts and some musicians. Who know you may discover the next Joan Boaz or Bob Dylan, they started there ya know. Pick up a local paper and Catch open mic night.
Just soak it up, you'll feel smarter just being there!
