A May 2006 trip to Boston by jcurrent

Quote: Things to do.

Back Bay Hotel

Hotel | "Jurys Boston Hotel"

Quote:
We stayed at the highly recommended Jurys Hotel in Copley Square and it did not disappoint. It was centrally located. On the Movie Tour, we even found out a bunch of movies were filmed right in Copley, like The Firm and Blown Away. http://www.jurys-boston-hotels.com/jurys_boston. We also heard good things about the Boston Park Plaza and may try that next time to mix things up.

Boston Duck Tours. For a ride around Boston, this is a great choice. The guides was really funny and showed us a great time. Saw a ton of Boston. The only problem was ticket availability. Reserve early. http://www.bostonducktours.com

Boston Movie Tours

Attraction

Quote:
A+ for us. Never been on a tour like this, and definitely recommend it, especially for movie fans. We love Boston Legal, and like movies, so hearing all the ins and outs about movies and TV shows and celeb gossip was great. The guide was super and handed out prizes for answering movie trivia correctly. Loved that we ended at Cheers, where we had the famous Norm burger. Probably not ideal for young children, as they may not be as familiar with the movies. http://www.bostonmovietours.net

Fenway Park Tour. How can you go to Boston and not see that big Green Monster? Saw all parts of the park and was a great was to see Boston’s baseball culture without going to a game. Unfortunately, the games were sold out. http://www.bostonredsox.com
