I'm looking for some itinerary feedback and suggestions. My husband and I are visiting Boston, staying at the Boston Park Plaza, and are history nerds as well as beer aficionados (him more than me, but I'll never say no to a good brew!) Also, we are very active and don't mind walking - we walked 4 miles to the next town and back over during our Maui honeymoon...multiple times! That said, here's what we have so far:
Arrive Sat. Oct. 4 at 2:45 p.m.
Check in at Hotel
Explore area around hotel including Boston Common, sites around the Common (maybe the first 2 or 3 stops on the Freedom trail?) and grab a bite to eat and some brews (Jacob Wirth, Parish Cafe, Green Dragon, Union Oyster House and Bell in Hand are all on our list to visit at some point).
Sunday Oct. 5
Grab breakfast at the hotel (plan on stashing some breakfast items in the room)
Take the T to the JFK Museum for spend 2-3 hours (is this too little? too much?)
Take the T back to Boston Common to start Freedom Trail
Monday Oct. 6
Walk to Fenway (my calculations have it around 2 miles from our hotel) Grab a bite to eat on the way. Take a tour of ballpark
After tour, visit Boston Beer Works and/or Dugout Cafe.
Walk to Cambridge (another 2 miles I believe, correct me if I'm wrong).
Explore Harvard Campus/Harvard Square (any recommended Brew pubs!?)
Tuesday Oct. 7
Take the T to Sam Adams Brewery for a Tour
Stop by Doyle's Cafe in Jamaica Plain
Any other suggestions??
Wednesday Oct. 8
Open for any remaining items that are left to do. I somewhat left it open as a contingency plan if the weather messed up our plans for the other days. Suggestions are welcome.
Thursday, Oct. 9
Leave early A.M.
Two things that we would like to fit in if there is time would be a preseason Bruins game (obviously the schedule is not out yet, but husband is a Bruins and Celtics fan...although I much prefer NHL to NBA) and the Harpoon Brewing Company Tour (which is 2 miles from our hotel from what I can tell... walkable? worth it?)
Any and all suggestions or tips would be great! Thank you!!
