FABULOUS. They have a great website:
maps, route planners, service advisories.
Also, I found it very helpful to print out google maps
...for the various areas (such as Museum of Fine Arts). Zoom in so you can see the T (subway) stops in the map and the street names.
I already had a Charlie Card so I just added $20...otherwise I would have gotten the weekly pass for $15. If you take more than 10 rides its definitely worth it.
I've been here since Monday 2/14. Leaving 11am.
Museum of Fine Arts
Science museum (and Imax movie on whales)
JFK Museum (been there before)
walked thru the Prudential center shopping "mall" . Resisted temptations....I did get a Boston mug in Starbucks.
Meals were hit and miss -- in no particular order
Lunch - Cheesecake Factory (very good)
Lunch: Bertuccis (very good steak sandwich)
Lunch: MFA (not cheap but delicious)
Dinner: Le Petit Robert Bistro (good)
Dinner: Bertucci's (just a salad with chicken - ok)
Dinner: G'vannis (I had a coupon. it was just ok...but they sent a car for me and drove me back to hotel!!!)
Dinner last night: I actually went to Wagamama and got takeout - chicken dumplings and RIBS. It was DELICIOUS.
