Boston is, in my humble opinion, the best place on earth. I have spent my whole life visiting places around Boston, and I still have a huge list of places I want to go "some day." The first "good" field trip I ever went on included shopping at Quincy Market, performing a reenactment of the meeting leading to the Boston Tea Party in the South Meeting House, and a trip to the Tea Party Ship itself, where we actually got to throw the tea overboard.

As a graduate student in Boston, I am able to go to the MFA for free at any time. I try to take advantage of this perk at least three or four times a year. I love art museums, and I find they are best enjoyed in increments of 2 to 3 hours. After that, I get tired from all the thinking and standing, but it's a good kind of tired. Despite the number of times I have been to the MFA, I still haven't seen all there is to see. I don't even think I have been in all the rooms. The museum continually has fabulous temporary exhibits, which is where you will see most of the contemporary art.
