August 11- 15

Okay, so tickets are booked with Jetblue airlines (never flown with them before) and will be staying at Boston Plaza Park from August 11-15th. Soooo excited to be back! I have had unsuccessful attempts on Google to these questions...please help!

Whats the best way to get to Fenway Park from Boston Plaza Park without having to walk about 2 miles?

Best way to get to Provincetown, besides using a car...if so, is it expensive?

What local restaurants in Back Bay/Beacon Hill that are affordable and yummy??

Is going to Cheers worth the trip?

Will TB win his 4th ring this season, given the upgrade in defense??!!

From the Park Plaza, you can take the green line to get from Arlington Station to Kenmore Square to get to Fenway Park.

There is ferry service from Boston to Provincetown. Surely you can google what it would cost!

I've heard good things about Number 9 Park.

Is going to Cheers worth the trip? If you went to Westeros would you stop at King's Landing?

Yes, he will.

Green Line Arlington station to Kenmore station (do NOT get on the E line, that branches off before Kenmore). Short walk from there to Fenway Park. If you're able to walk back to the hotel it's worth it in my opinion to avoid the crush on the subway post-game. www.mbta.com

Provincetown Ferry is $88 r/t per adult, discounts for senior and kids. I know it's a lot of money but I took it a few years back with about 6 other people and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again, great ride on the ocean. www.bostonharborcruises.com

Atlantic Fish Company on Boylston St near Prudential is good if you want seafood.

Cheers is fine if you're a fan of the show, it's obviously a major tourist spot. The staff has been friendly anytime I've been in there, which has only been when out of town friends or family visit.

Patriots over Cowboys 36-21 in the Super Bowl (had to take that shot since I see in your profile where you're from.)

1) The B, C or D train of the Green line to Kenmore

2)Ferry; as McT says, the fare sounds $$$ but the ride is part of the fun.

3)What do you like to eat and what is your idea of affordable (give us an idea of what you would like to pay

for a meal, tax and drinks excluded);

4) Good Lord no!

5) LOL.

Thanks Thomas G.

LOL MccTripper!! I googled the price for the ferry after Thomas suggested, and it seems that it would be my best option, and since you say its a great ride on the ocean...I'll take it!

I had Atlantic Fish Co. my last trip there October 2013. I love the service, food was alright. I guess I am looking for suggestions to eat at daily for my whole week there, something that doesnt cost the price of a dinner.

Although I am from Dallas, Cowboys are definitely not my team. And if miraculously, they somehow make it TO the playoffs and TO the SB, score against the Patriots wont be 36-21....something more like 36-6, if Romo the Choker even scores. I cant wait for 2015 season when the Patriots play in Dallas.

Try out the Summer Shack one night. Great fish tacos if you like them.
