Sadly, we can only have a day trip into Boston. It's on a Sunday in June. We're staying in Plymouth, MA, and some have suggested we drive to Quincy Adams, park, and get the Subway from there into the city centre, getting off at Park Street. Is this a sensible travel plan?
But even after reading a fair amount about Boston, I'm stuck on how best to fill our day. We can't do everything, but I can't decide what we should do to get a nice 'taste' of the city.
I like the idea of a Duck Tour, but with such limited time I'm not sure how sensible it would be walking over there, buying a ticket and possibly having to come back again at a later time. Do people think it's also a bit expensive? (as an alternative, it did cross my mind to do a short trip on the inner harbour ferry).
So we could walk round the gardens and some (or all?) of the Freedom Trail, but I'm not sure how much is sensible/feasible for a leisurely day (including a stop for lunch) presuming we'll be heading home around 5pm or so.
How would YOU plan a day trip for new visitors to the city?
Many thanks, in advance, for any help and advice. All is gratefully received.
