This Boston girl is more than pleased to tell you about a great free guide to the city I love, Boston Tourism Essentials: The Must-See Sights You'll Love. Whether you're just beginning to think about visiting or already bought your plane tickets, print out a copy of this fun guide and get your highlighters ready!
Boston Tourism Essentials: The Must-See Sights You'll Love covers some of the old faithful (The Freedom Trail, Fenway Park, Boston Common/The Public Garden), as well as many of our fabulous museums (Children's Museum, Museum of Science, Museum of Fine Arts, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, etc.).
It seemed slightly odd to me that one of my absolute favorite places, The New England Aquarium, was included in the museum section, but I'll let that slide. There is also a bonus - and very helpful for anyone trying to understand our complex color coded maps - section on Boston Public Transportation. Study this section well, remember it's called the "T" and make sure you've got your CharlieCard loaded at all times (trust me, this saves time and aggrevasion galore, especially during busy times).
