Best of both worlds Mar 13, 2008
If you're headed to Boston, there is something for everyone here. If shopping is on your mind, visit Quincy Market in Faneuil Hall, the center of the city (for discount coupons go to www.faneuilhallmarketplace.com). During the warm weather months, there is always some form of entertainment being performed in the square i.e. dancing groups, various artists, and musicians. My favorite market in this district is called Exotic Flowers. It's right smack in the middle of everything and it showcases the most beautiful flowers I've ever seen through its huge glass windows. Even if I'm not planning on buying something, I take a walk through the greenhouse just as well. It's so warm in there and it has a pleasant flowery smell with the sound of running water baths in the background.
The rest of this district is lined with big name shops along with unique one-of-a-kind boutiques. Faneuil Hall is also a great place to find unique and great-tasting foods. Dine outside right in the middle of the hustle and bustle life of Boston at The Rack, frequented by numerous celebrities. Awesome food and decently priced, The Rack is my all-time favorite place to eat in the big city.
Lastly, on to the Boston Commons. It is surprising to see such a large park in the middle of a large city. It could be compared to Central Park in NYC. I love visiting the gardens in the summer to see the sun shimmering off of the sea and to walk through the trees with the wind blowing in my hair. It is so relaxing and provides an escape from reality. Definitely put this on your list of "things to see."
Hope I could provide you with enough information so you can have an enjoyable time here. It is very easy to just jump into Boston and find something interesting to get yourself involved in. You won't be disappointed!
