seeking travel suggestions...

I'm heading to Boston for a few days on Saturday. If you had ONE DAY free to play in Boston, what would you recommend? It will be a Sunday...

Quilty stuff to follow soon!

I would check with the half-priced tickets kiosk in Copley Square and buy tickets for a matinee performance of something ... if you like that sort of thing. You could end up with a nice seat at the Boston Symphony or a Pre-Broadway run of some interesting theatre. And if you don't find anything that interests you there, you are close enough for a walk through the Boston Garden and Common and high tea at the hotel (that used to be the Ritz Carlton) that is across the street from the Garden.

Walking the Freedom Trail.

Freedom Trail is good. Also Isabelle Stewart Gardiner house/museum. Top of the Hancock building if it's a clear day.

Giant chocolate cannoli at Mike's Pastries in the North End. Totally worth the wait and the crowd! Very near the old North church, which is interesting as well (but the cannoli are better!).

Totally the ISGM, like Kay said. I went to college next door to there, and would have had my wedding there if we could have afforded it. Harvard Square is fun but used to be more unique. Walk Newbury St- window shop funky cool AND expensive designer stuff. Touristy but still fun is Fanueil Hall (loads of food- the chowder place is GREAT), and you can walk over to the NE Aquarium from there- the seals are outside and free for viewing, which is nice.
Upstairs on the Square in harvard square is my fave place for brunch- soooo yummy and cool to look at as well.

Gah, I'm homesick now.
