November 2014

The following is what I was able to accomplish during my two days in Boston, having never been there before. After my experience, I would recommend three to four days.

Day 1
Harvard
Massachusetts State House
Boston Common
Day 2
Boston Public Library
Freedom Trail
Quincy Market
This may not seem like much, but it’s easy to spend an entire day walking around Harvard’s campus. It’s a very big, beautiful place, as is the Boston Public Library. There are also many historic things to see along the Freedom Trail. You can see the original Cheers restaurant. I did not eat there, however, because  I found the menu to be too expensive. Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to visit the Paul Revere House or the Boston Tea Party Museum. Quincy Market is all in doors, and contains a large variety of food stalls and souvenir stands.
Also, it should be noted that it was very cold, rainy, and windy my second day in Boston, so I tried to stay in doors as much as possible.
