Best Way To Get Around:

The "T" which is the subway. It is the oldest one in America. There are four lines that take you almost anywhere you want to go and if it can't get you there a bus can.

Holiday Inn Boston Brookline

Hotel | "Holiday Inn"

Quote:
The accomodations in Boston are very expensive but the Holiday Inn on Beacon Street is in a nice part of Brookline, right off the Subway''s C Line, only one block from Coolidge Corner. Its an ideal location because it is in close proximity to Kenmore Square and Fenway Park. It has lots of ammenities and it actually has an indoor garden feel to it that I can''t quite explain.

Vinny T's of Boston

Restaurant | "Vinny Testa's"

Quote:
Vinny's is my favorite Italian restaurant. Its got lots of food for a great price. You don't have to worry about not getting your money's worth when you eat here. And definitely count on bringing some home. They have several locations to suit you. And they are fun. At the end of the meal they tell you your table number and shake a bottle filled with tons of numbers. If your number comes out your meal is free, excluding drinks, taxes and tip.

Marche Movenpick

Restaurant

Quote:
This place is a great mix of everything. It has a very unique atmosphere in that it mixes foods from many different cultures. When you enter the building you get a passport and as you walk around to the different food stations and ask for varied selections the servers will stamp your passport. You bring your food and beverage to the table and pay on your way out. It helps a lot if you are going Dutch with friends. That way there is no bill to separate out. Its a fun place to go. They have everything from crepes to pasta, a coffee bar to a juice bar. They have salad and soup, meat and potatoes....lots of great food.

Museum of Fine Arts Boston

Attraction | "Museum of Fine Arts"

Quote:
This museum is quite large. There isn't much for kids, besides the gift shop, so I wouldn't advise bringing the younger ones because they will get restless pretty quickly. The museum has many different features, lots of pieces from ancient civilizations (Ancient Roman and Greek times). The part of the museum that is my favorite is the section containing the old musical instruments. Also they have a fashion section with old dresses. I also like the sections of old furniture and those that are set up into old style bedrooms, similar to that of Versailles Palace in France. Looking at exhibits can be fun. For some, however, the museum may get old quickly. It's a little pricey, too, so splurge f...Read More

AMC Fenway 13

Attraction | "General Cinema Fenway 13"

Quote:
I'm not advertizing a movie so much as this brand new theater with stadium seating. Its one of the most expensive in Boston but it has a lot of space and a great snack bar setup. Its a great look for a newly refurbished building.

It's about three floors with different types of fish and aquatic life. There are open tanks and other types of tanks in which to view all these different types of fish. They are very interesting as each one seems to have different characteristics. It's more than enough to entertain one and all for a few hours. By that time you can pretty much be done with all the sites.
