I wanted to lay out my plan and see if anyone had ideas, suggestions, etc. Also I am planning on purchasing the gobostoncard for 3-5 days. One other point my husband and I are young and very fit.
Day 1 - arrive app 12:40 to airport, take green line to our hotel - harborside inn (res already made). I gave us several hours to get from airport to hotel and settle in. I am planning a duck tour at 3:30 - I will order tickets in advance. We will be done at 5:00 (app) and I was planning on a nice meal - also w/ res :)(i know totally ocd). I would assume dinner done at 6ish (we are not lingerers) and at that point I planned for us to go to the museum of fine art as it is open until 9:45 on friday on the website.
Day 2 - light meal at the hotel or nearby, T to fenway park for fenway park tour 9-10, I would like to eat a nice meal near fenway - elephant walk or citizen's public house and oyster bar (we both eat very healthy, I am a fishy vegan), I want to be at the trinity church by 12:15 for the organ concert (we may fit a quick visit to the boston public library in before the concert). Then the Freedom Trail - probably self-guided we rarely have the patience to wait in a huge group. We may not be able to finish it all. I particularly want to see the inside of mass state house, old granary cemetery, possibly king's chapel, paul revere's house, old north church and uss constitution w/ museum. At that point we may eat again or go straight to fenway park where we have tickets for the 7:10 game and eat there - my husband probably wants to do this (bleck - try being a fishy vegan at a baseball game).
day 3 - we are huge american history buffs so I was thinking a lexington/concord trip would be nice, we are happily debating whether a car will be a good idea, but after reading all the options I think that is the only way. If a car is a no go we are considering plymouth or salem. Back to boston for dinner - probably peach farm and then the ghost tour at 8
Day 4 - Harvard - I was thinking about henrietta's table for brunch, doing the harvard walk described in frommer's and then (shockingly enough) I don't have any plans (anybody think fitting in plymouth is feasible?) - thinking of a nice dinner and possible sheer madness to end.
I know this sounds like a lot but we recently had to walk 20 miles in the andean mountains in one day and did just fine. We like to keep very busy, we dislike waiting and we don't loiter EVER
