What seafood experience in Boston is still on 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. In the nearby seaport, you can take a whale-watching trip or dine at one of the many restaurants serving a Boston specialty: 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, modeled on the 80's 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.
