Boston seemed like a nice place to visit, but a tough place to live -- The locals weren't too friendly to outsiders. Maybe it was just me.

Jeff,

I was there two years ago--at Cheers and visiting prospective colleges with my son. Great town, and extremely crowded--seems like lots of people visiting. My son's sailing team partner just started at MIT this year. Are you sure there are fewer people visiting--or just posting about here on this website?

I'll be there in the New Year, right after my visit to Isa Manor

So fire away with the advice there Jeff

I'm coming, I'm coming - we'll be there in May but don't exactly know what to do when we get there! Tells us what not to miss and what definitely not to do. We DO want to go to cheers but are not familiar with what else. We will have about 2 days or so and then onto a wedding. Help us out please. We're in our early 50's but cool!

wow i didnt even check this forum in a while sorry!

heres sonethin i wrote up a while back for nightlife:

The best part of the city i think is Central Sq. in Cambridge (there's a red line stop on the T called aptly, "Central Square")

Its on MAss Ave - the main road thru the city North to South. The Middle East Bar has two floors that has the best music from Local jazz and rock bands upstairs with good veggie food and local beer and downstairs is a great rock venue - check out listings in the Boston Phoenix (www.bostonphoenix.com) for upcoming events. The club is on the corner of Mass Ave and Brookline street - further down Brookline you wil find TT and the Bears - another great place for live music - mainly Indie. Also In central heading north towards Harvard is the Phoenix Landing - irish bar during day and during the week nights great spot for local dance music - last i knew:

Tues - Hip Hop
Wed - House
Thur - DnB

Also behind Starbucks across the steet - the Field Pub is a cool Irish bar - very lively on the weekend. going the other way on Mass ave, towards Boston is Asia - a Indie rocker bar hangout.

Allston is another great spot for bars - over run with students, but if u can wade thru the beer and puke on the streets go to the Model, another indie rocker hangout (on Cambridge Street) right next to a wonderful Vegan restaurant called "the Grasshopper"

ok, Nightclubs
My opinion the best one just closed, Manray, but if u must get ur dance on try Lansdowne Street in Kenmore Sq.
Avalon Club is ur typical superclub, glowstick crowd with world class Djs - www.avalonboston.com
next door to avalon - Axis - bit grungier with a cool saturday nite 80s theme.

DONT go to ROXY! (Theatre District) terrible meat-head crowd equipped with ETards and Girls with fake tans and glitter mess all over their face. the place stinks of sweaty extacy and lost dreams.

Matrix is way to pretentious and Euro trash for me, but to each his own.
