One Day In Boston
It sounds like the name of a new TV show but it is actually one day in my life. Next month I'll be traveling to Boston for business and since I've never been there I decided to stay through the weekend. I fly in on a Thursday. Work all day Friday and fly out on Sunday. So, that gives me all day Saturday - one day- to see Boston. It's quite overwhelming. I'm starting to look online for things to do because I'm afraid if I don't have a lot of ideas I'll be so overwhelmed that I'll do something lame like go to a movie or hang out at the hotel bar the entire time.
I found this walking tour not far from my hotel. But, it is going to be December so I don't know how long I'll last outside and some of the places along the tour don't appear to be open on Saturdays. Suggestions are welcome. What one thing do you think I must do to get a real taste of Boston?
I've been thinking what I would suggest to someone if they asked me the same thing about Los Angeles. I would have to say Venice Beach for sure. It was one of the first places I had to see when I got here and I still love it. Other, obvious stuff, like Hollywood and all its touristy stuff is way overrated.
