Our first day of site-seeing consisted of taking a hop-on, hop-off tour (similar to what I had done in NYC about a year and a half ago). We booked it the night before, and got on at North Station, which was Stop 4 on the route. We decided against riding all the way back to see Stops 1-3 at the end of things, but that was mostly because we were anxious to get out and see more of the city. See my review for more info on the company and the tour itself.
We saw a little of everything in the city via that tour bus, and when it ended, we walked across the street to Quincy Market. Being tourists, we decided to have lunch at the Cheers "replica" bar, then stumbled across the Freedom Trail at Faneuil Hall. This was listed as a must-see in our guidebook, so we thought we'd walk it for a little while until we got tired of it, then strike off on our own. It took us all through the historic district of the city, and we enjoyed ourselves so much that before we knew it, we had walked the whole 2.5 miles of it! By the time we were finished with that we were exhausted. You can see so much of the city in such a short period of time, but we just couldn't bring ourselves to keep up with the site-seeing...that's what the rest of the trip was for.
