What seafood experience in Boston lingers in your mind?

Quincy Market offers a long avenue of food stalls. Amongst them you can find several selling lobster tail roll. I went for the daily special at the Boston Chowda Co. - a lobster tail roll with a side of soup or chowda. I can definitely recommend their New England Clam Chowda. I went back on my last day for seconds it was that good. Further afield in the North End you can find a host of Italian restaurants serving up seafood. I took the guide book's recommendation and tried Giacomo's on Hanover Street: busy, tightly packed tables, yet incredibly friendly and offering generous portions (albeit standard by America measures) of some lovely pasta with your choice of seafood and sauce. Expect to queue, but its worth it. Decent price too.

    Where Everybody Knows Your Name

    One of the oldest and most historic US cities, Boston is known as ‘America’s Walking City’. In its heart, next to 18th-century Faneuil Hall, is Quince Market - a food haven. The nearby seaport offers whalewatching trips and restaurants serving a Boston speciality: lobster with melted butter.

    The streets south of the peaceful Charles River in Back Bay are lined with Victorian brownstone houses. At the downtown end of one – Beacon Street – is the Cheers bar, modelled on the 80s sitcom. Opposite is Boston Common, a large park with a bronze sculpture celebrating the book ‘Make Way for Ducklings’. The golden dome of the House of Representatives is by the other end.

    The oldest part is Charlestown and streets around the Bunker Hill obelisk still feature old-style gas lamps, though now they are electric. Over in Cambridge, Harvard is the USA’s oldest and most prestigious university. The campus is open to the public, as is Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), whose central point is an emblematic, Pantheon-like building.

    Sport in Boston is also a big thing, with the Celtics and Red Sox among the city’s big name teams.

    The largest New England city, Boston has the perfect size for walking and cycling. Logan International Airport is connected by public transport to Boston hotels, motels, apartments and B&Bs.

    Hotels that guests love in Boston

    • The customer service was outstanding. My boyfriend and I enjoy traveling and this was our first time in Boston. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting. They offer free parking and shuttle service to the subway/airport. Both ways! :) very convenient if you do not wish to spend money downtown with parking. Will definitely be planning another trip soon!

    • The hotel is in the center of Boston, in the Back Bay district, at a better rate than the other hotels in the area. Rooms are nice and wide, even though they are less luxurious than other venues in the Back Bay. This is a really great place to stay in

    • Hotel Boston Marriott Long Wharf is great spot to be in Boston. We stayed 4 nights with view direction to waterfront. Room was spacious, like the design. Very spacious areas, good hotel reastaurant.

    • It is a very nice hotel, close to Fenway Park & Back Bay. Train is literally 1 min away. We got a complimentary upgrade to a very nice room and we found everything we needed for a brief stay (gym, good breakfast, free wifi...). It is certainly a very good hotel to explore this part of Boston (or any part, if you use the train).
