On Sunday's Memorial Drive is shut down to all cars.

This is by The JFK Street intersection. It is very nice to walk here and enjoy everything going on.

Fresh Pond is a nice escape. Harvard Square is easily an all day adventure.

It's very difficult to get Red Sox tickets unless you are willing to pay a premium at stubhub or ace tickets.

Scroll down and look for the post entiled "What do I ahve to do to get Red Sox tickets". Lots of info and reality there ...

And while you are doing that, check out some other basic information about what to do, restaurants, etc. Your questions (?) are too broad to answer as they are.

You can find lots of information here:


You can try Craig's list for tickets too.

Faneuil Hall in Boston is a great place for food - you will find every sort of food imagineable at ok prices. And it is fun for the kids since there are often street performers, you can sit outside, you can go down to the water front.

Oh, and you can go and look at the seals for free outside the aquarium!

Have fun!

If you're staying in Cambridge, Harvard Square is a great place to find food. Like Faneuil, Harvard Sq. has street performers, lots of shops, and is a great place to walk around and take in the atmosphere. Have fun!!
