Boston, MA
Travellers

I am going to be in Boston for work early November and will be spending the weekend of the 10th and 11th there before flying out to NC.

Any recommendations for things to do/see?

The Bruins are not playing at home that weekend so that's out and I am going to check other sport offerings at StubHub, there's the Premium Outlets about 40 mins away so that could be a Saturday day trip.

I am happy wandering around on my own and discovering but wanted to know if there was any must-do's/recommendations from previous visitors.

Thanks

You planned to be there when Bieber was there! LOL

Try other sports...i.e. see if Boston Celtics (basketball) are playing that weekend or do a Boston Red Sox (baseball) tour...

When I was there I just walked and explored the scenary...pretty cool little city...

Rug up...I was there during October and I was freezing my a$$ off

You must hit up Fenway Park if there is a game on - just buy a ticket of a scalper outside , they are good value and you can get some good seats if you haggle - best sporting venue in the USA, and surrounded by pubs and bars.

It'll be cold though in November, I'm going to be there first week of December, staying at a Kimpton hotel. Pretty much going to spend the nights bar hopping and chowder eating.

I was in Atlantic City when beiber was in town ... OMFG the young girls dressed like complete sluts. I felt like pedo bear just walking past them on the boardwalk.

At least Boston is big enough that you can ignore the fact he is there.

Thanks guys, appreciated.

Celtics are playing at TD Garden on the Friday night so am looking at tickets for that now - this far out there are still a few available, should be able to get a decent seat.

And there will be NO Bieber-ing. Unless it's in the form of a run-by-fruiting.

I enjoyed the beer selection here: http://www.bostonmagazine.com/restau...nset_grill_tap

Although got stuck out there due to the bloody public transport finishing at 11 or whenever it was.

You must hit up Fenway Playground if there is a activity title on - just buy a admission of a scalper outside , they are excellent value and you can get some excellent chairs if you deal - best wearing location in the USA, and enclosed by cafes and cafes.

Boom! Finally going to visit Boston next year. Can't wait. Hopefully I'll be able to catch a Sox or 'Tics game. Any other must do's other than eating Chowder?

Check out the Northend for sure, some great little restaurants and bars throughout.

http://www.northendboston.com/

One of my fav places there was 'The Daily Catch', its a tiny little restaurant in the North End. The owners head out each day and create a menu based on waht is caught, so its all really fresh. They cook the food right next to you and then serve it up in the pan they cooked it in. Was delicious and a cool little experience. The guys are really friendly and nice too.

I know your a Pats fan, so probably sussed that one out already. Celtics was one of my favorite nights there - sidenote make sure you take your passport there as they only serve alcohol if you have your passport, Ausse license etc are not valid!

I'll add some other stuff when I think of it. How long you there for and do you plan to stay in the City? Places like Havard are cool to check out as well.
