Going to spend those two days checking out Boston itself. The last time I was there was to see a touring cast of a show, so I was only around the Copley Square/theatre area.

Anybody have any suggestions of things to see/do in the area? My only definite plans are checking out the Adams National Site and one of the Wagamama locations. So I'm definitely open to suggestions!

Freedom Trail in Boston http://www.thefreedomtrail.org/tickets/tours.html

If you don't do the tours it might still give you some ideas.

I definitely want to do the Freedom Trail. I think I might also go and visit Harvard - just for fun.

Even though I've been to Cambridge I've never explored Harvard ... though I've been to Yale in New Haven CT.

We are so excited to be coming out and getting a chance to meet you all. It's always fun when you can finally put a face and real name to a screen name. Haven't even told the kids yet, but they'll be thrilled to see the movie and make some new friends too!

See you all soon!

What hotels have people booked?
We have a son graduating high school here in Nova Scotia on June 29. We are hosting a family dinner and then the kids all night party. At some point on the 30th, we will hit the road and aim to be in Mass the next evening.

Just wanted to say that I stayed at the Courtyard Marriott (with the CocoKey attached) this weekend for a conference and thought the room was very nice. I really liked the decor - had a relaxing Zen type feel. I did the Pete dust check, and there was none. I had food that was catered from the hotel and that was iffy at best.

Also, I went to Panera for dinner right next to the movie theater! Now I know where we'll be going on July 2nd!

Isn't the Panera located near the Entertainment Cinema in Leominster?

Cinema World is on John Fitch Highway further north.

The Wagamama in Quincy Market/Fanuiel Hall is good (there's also a great Irish restaurant there called Ned Devine's---AWESOME fish & chips), and there's plenty of shops in the area.

The Museum of Science is always fun (be sure to see a show in the Omni Theatre), as is the New England Aquarium. But my favorite museums in the city are the Boston Museum of Fine Art and the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, both of which are close to "T" stops. The smaller Isabella Stewart Gardner museum is beautiful as well, and was the site of an infamous art heist.

The most "touristy" thing to do is the Boston Duck Tours (departing from the Museum of Science and the Prudential Center), those are a good time. Some of the guides would make a perfect fit on the Jungle Cruise.

Sorry for going on and on...I love this city...


...GO SOX!!!
