@candy11:  If you like Italian food/desserts, definitely visit the North End!  If the weather is nice, head over to the Esplanade and walk along the Charles River – you’ll get a great view from the Longfellow Bridge.  If you’re into sports (and they don’t have a game) Fenway does a great tour. It’s also fun to have a drink in the Top of the Hub, the restaurant in the top of the Prudential Center because again, a great view.  Newbury Street is fun for shopping/window shopping and has a mix of local boutiques and more standard offerins like Anthro, etc.  If you’re a history buff, the Freedom trail is fun, an easy walk, takes you through a lot of the city including the Commons, and is free!  Let me know if you need more advice!

@candy11:  Other really fun places to try to see/stop in at:

The Liberty Hotel, which used to be a jail, has a cool bar and restaurant (Alibi & Clink)

Toro is an amazing restaurant for dinner; there are usually long lines but it is totally worth it.

A duck tour is fun for first time visitors, a little cheesy, but some of the tour guides can be really fun.

Stop in Faneuil Hall for lunch/dessert – there are tons of cute food vendors.

@candy11:  The Head of the Charles is this weekend- huge event for Boston. I always like the tours that @RobinBananas mentioned and there are a ton downtown in faniuel hall.

If you have a car, take a trip to go apple picking– there are so many orchards in driving distant from Boston. Salem, MA is also adorable this time of year and has so much going on.

The Seaport area is all new with great places for dinner. If you like Seafood, Legal’s is great, just stay on the first floor for more affordable pricing. North End does have amazing food. Top of the Hub– stop and get a drink. You can always pay for a drink and get a table on the lounge side of the place.

There is so much to do! I love it here, enjoy!
