I'm headed to Boston later next week for a short work trip. Flying in to Boston Wednesday for an afternoon meeting then a different meeting all day Thursday. The bride decided she wanted to fly out Friday to meet me since she's never been to Boston and it's never really been a place we've really looked into going to visit for a regular vacation.

It'll be a short lived trip, but we pretty much have Friday afternoon through Sunday mid-day to do whatever.

Any recommendations on good eats in the area or things to go see and do? The primary things I've found online are walking tours, ghost tours, trolley rides, and sunset cruises. Not knocking those, but curious if any of yall have been to Boston and what was worth seeing.

The lobster is great almost anywhere.

My condolences…spent several weeks there for work. Hated it. Good oysters & lobster rolls. Traffic is “wicked, airport sucks & most locals were clowns.

The U.S.S. Constitution and Battle Road if you like military history.

If you are a baseball fan, take a tour of Fenway park. We took one with the wife and kids, and I loved it. Lots of great baseball history there. We stayed in the Hotel Buckminster, an old school hotel, where they say was the meeting place where the players met to throw the 1919 World Series. I was in awe for the entire ball park tour. I think the hotel is closed now, though.

If you like Italian food then the North End is the place to be.

You could do the Freedom Trail walking tour or go out to Lexington Common (Lexington Battle Green) and see where the Revolution started. If you go to Lexington visit Buckman Tavern, and dine at the Meeting House, Buckman is now a museum, and the Meeting House is located in the Inn at Hastings Park, The patriots that started this country patronized both places.

Regina Pizza on the north side of Boston, Thacher Street. They are a chain now, but the original one is awesome. Beer by the pitcher. We were there in the summer, so the cold beer was a great way to end the hot day.

We walked the Liberty Trail (self guided). Get an Uber to get to the Bunker Hill monument. Walking that hill sucked.

Faneuil Hall is a good place to poke around with the wife. I like the aquarium as well, followed by lunch/dinner at Legal Seafood next door. Sam Adams brewery is worth a visit in Jamaica Plain.

Get a different job so you don't have to partake in short work trips there BUT since we're talking about partaking...

Chad's right with the Fenway tour it's amazing. Our North End favorite restaurant is Giacomo's (Italian) but it's really small and we have waited up to two hours to get in but we think it's worth it. A block away is Mike's Pastries, also normally busy but doesn't take too long. Whale watching boats go out pretty frequently, Quincy Market is a pretty cool really old area you can walk around, Have fun with those Yankees they're not as bad as these codgers say...

Lobster Rolls and strippers were the only things I ever found to my liking but my god were those two things worth the trip flehan

The talk funny and most of the people are rude so I’d stuff my face with lobsters and stay in the hotel room now,

Some good info and is much appreciated. I’ll get to looking into some of these.

Boston is obviously not my first choice of vacation spots but my company is heavily invested in metal 3D printing and the main HQ for that particular company is there.

USS Cassin Young is nearby. He could see that to.

Lobster was awesome!

Lost my mind over the traffic. I won’t complain about Dallas ever again.

We did a private Segway tour. They asked us what we wanted to see. Saved wear and tear on my sore feet.

FWIW, I won’t need to go back.

I enjoyed seeing Boston. If you like American history there's plenty to see and do. The seafood is great. I'd hit the harbor too, always wanted to go to Gloucester and check that out.

Some good ones mentioned, will add Wayside Inn, a little bit out of town but how often do you eat at a place from the 1600s. The company we were there with took us there for dinner.

Food was good and something about the Inn Longfellow wrote of in Tales of the Wayside Inn.
