Hi,
I'm planning a trip to Boston with my girlfriend.
We should arrive Tuesday March 1st around 1-2 pm and we have to leave friday March 4th.

I was wondering if anyone have suggestions.
We did not make any hotel reversion yet.
Right now, we are looking at two Bed&Breakfast.
The first one is in Somerville: Morrison house bed and breakfast, 221 Morrison Avenue.
The second one is: John Jeffries House, 14 David G. Mugar Way.
Both are around 100$/nights.

We will buy passes for the subway(T).
We want to see Harvard (free student-led tour, the library, ...), MIT, JFK library, Museum of fine arts, Prudential center skywalk observatory, chinatown, Faneuil market, Cheers!, Comedy connection, fredom trail.

So, if you know something I should do, go or even a good restaurants please tell me.
Thank you!

P.S. I live in Montreal Canada, do anyone know if I'll encounter toll! to get to Boston?

***Hotels in Boston tend to be full most of the time, so you should book something asap.

***Don’t know where the Jeffries House is, but I would try for something more central to the city, so you can walk the sites and be close to things. You might have to lay more $$$ however. See:

***sounds like you have it well covered, but it really depends on what your focus is.


So, if you know something I should do, go or even a good restaurants please tell me.

***For a great view of the city, I highly recommend “Top of the Hub” on top of the Pordential building. Good food, super view. I always bring people there who are visiting the area.See:
