Hi all, I know itinerary questions are a dime a dozen at the moment, but I was hoping the experts can have a look over mine and see is it optimal with regards timing, and layout of what we want to see.
We have two and a bit days in Boston, arriving at about 5pm Sat Sept 3rd and collecting our car at the aiport in the morning of Tue Sept 6th. We like walking around historic sites, nice shops, great photo ops.
Sat 9/3: Arrive Sheraton Hotel @ 16.00 approx, we expect to be pretty tired after our flight, so just planning to walk up Newbury St, have a look around Copley Square area, grab a bite to eat and have an early night.
Sun 9/4: Up early and up to Boston Common, have a look round there.
- Lunch North End (probably a deli sandwich or something takeaway)
- Take the T over to Harvard Square, explore that area, visit Harvard Yard.
- Head back to hotel for shower and change, eat dinner North End
Mon 9/5 : Up Early and take T to USS Constitution. Hopefully get to do the first tour of the day on the USS Constitution (I have checked, they are open today as it is Labor Day) Visit USS Constitution Museum
- Lunch Quincy Market, tour the Market area
- Take the T back to Boston Common, do the other part of the Freedom Trail to Beacon Hill
- Explore Beacon Hill area
- Back to hotel for change, eat Back Bay Area
So, what do you think of this Itinerary? Is it doable time wise? Anything we should add or take out?
I know there are no museums or art galleries, we have decided not to visit any as we have such limited time and they do take a good chunk of the day to visit. Also, we are lucky enough to have visited some amazing museums and galleries in the past.
We have also decided to skip Fenway, I know a lot of people reccommend it, but we have zero interest (or knowledge) in baseball.
