I am already very excited to see both the Isabella Steward-Gardner Museum, the Museum of fine art, the Boston public library, the Old South, and First Churches (not religiously just because they may be beautiful). I plan to walk the freedom trail on my own. What other delights of the city should I not miss? I will be there for a week as my husband attends a conference.
Also if there is anywhere to get a good traditional (not frilly) English afternoon tea, (or a pub with a good cucumber and smoked salmon sandwich) that would be lovely.
I am a lady who has already had plenty of clubs/excitement/shopping to fill a lifetime and so hope when I visit a someplace new to see what is unique about it, rather than what is the same everywhere in the English-speaking world (I dislike national and multinational chains just on general principles). Living in the west I am weary of sports (unless I am playing them) and sick to death of the entertainment industry and everyone in it as it passes for news here to speculate on their personal lives. Additionally I don’t really wish to be sold anything (yes and I watch PBS too).
