One word: Mmmmm. . . 33 is an elegant restaurant, hidden away in the middle of Boston. I found it on the internet and my friend, who lived in Boston at the time, had never heard of it. A group of four of us decided to go check it out and we certainly did not regret it. We started off with some cocktails. They have a plethora of martinis and I chose the "Elephant Balls" martini mainly for the name, but it was delicious all the same. A sweet martini made with lychee juice and lychee (hence the name), I was a little disappointed to see my martini had been castrated as it only had one Elephant Ball (lychee).

How can you go to Boston and not visit the Green Monster? It's just a must, like walking the Freedom Trail. Being at Fenway Park is like living out your own Field of Dreams. On a game day, the side street (I believe that is Yawkey Way) is open only to foot traffic and turnstiles are placed for fans with tickets only.

If you're going to take a tour in Boston, you must take a DUCK Tour. The tour guides, known as "conDUCKtors" are pretty funny, but the most interesting part is that the tour "bus" is an amphibious vehicle that can go on land and in the water - meaning the tour bus drives into the Charles River and becomes a boat! Our conDUCKtor was Mad Capt, this crusty old seadog with a fake parrot (whose bio you can see on the main site) took us all around the historic points of Boston (Boston Commons, Faneuil Hall, etc.). This is a great tour to take with family in the afternoon a hot day when everyone needs a break anyway.
