Hey all!

I'm going to be in Boston for the weekend and I a question. Where and what are the main things to see and do in Boston? Any places that we need to see? I've been to Boston before (a few times) but I was younger so I definitely don't know the night spots to hit. Any suggestions?

Check out boston common area. A lot of shopping and people watching. If you go down near fenway, there is a string of bars. It can be a bit crazy. I saw this guy got tossed out the window because he was a yankee fan! A lot of U.S historical landmark if u are into that kind thing. What else(thinking....) If u can afford it, there is lounge called "whiskey park" A lot celebs hangout there. Pretty cool. Seafood is awesome! Best part about Boston..... a good public transportation system. U can crawl your way home, if u get to tipsy! Thats from personal experience If I can think about anything else...I will let u know.

I just loved your post--ha ha ha! I haven't laughed so hard in awhile.

P.S. When that Yankee fan got tossed?--was that after game 3 of the series when Boston got beat 19-8, or was it after they won the championship, had been drinking, and everybody thought tossing him was a good way to celebrate?

P.P.S. Please note that I do not condone violence. It's just the way the item was posted struck me as funny.

Drink more green beer you Boston Irish Catholic fans. Enjoy

Actually, that bar thing happened 4 years ago. I tell ya..I am die hard A's fan. I was afraid to show my colors! Bostonians are cool bunch. Those Irish are some good drinkers though!Just don't mess with politics, sox, and religion!

Some great things to do in Boston just off the top of my head... Walk part of the Freedom Trail, take a duck tour (amphibious truck/boat... very cool), cross the river on the red line subway train over to Cambridge and walk around Harvard Square. Go over to Quincy Market and Fanieul Hall. Plenty to do, and it doesn't have to cost a fortune. Enjoy your trip!
