Itinerary possible?

Hi all,

Due to fly into boston on a Friday at 6pm, Monday 9:30pm. Haven't booked hotel yet but will be booking somewhere central.

Wondering if this is enough time to see the JFK museum, Quincey market, walk around Harvard and see cheers bar? Would also maybe do duck tour time permitting?

Would appreciate your input as could possibly fly in on Thursday instead (same time 6pm) but this is not a cert.

Thanks in advance.

Didn't even know there was a Museum for JFK in Boston. Learned something new.

I assume you are arriving Friday @6 and leaving Monday @ 9:30pm

So you have all day Sat, Sun and most on Mon. You can do all that you have planned and more.

On Friday you can do Quincy market and have dinner there or in the North End (Italian restaurant near Quincy market. on Saturday morning I would start with a duck tour to get your bearings. On Sunday you could go to the JFK library and museum then maybe to Harvard as it is on the same subway line but opposite side of the city. (But you could also do JFK & Harvard on separate days, too

It's actually the JFK Library. But what about the Freedom Trail?

The JFK Library will take you about 20-25 minutes by T to get to (more or less depending on your connections). Take that into consideration when planning. The Library has a lot going for it. It's also in a gorgeous spot, right on the water overlooking the Harbor on one side and Dorchester Bay on the other. It is a bit of a trek, if you're trying to fit a lot into one day. You could to that and something else like Harvard or Quincy Market, but not everything you listed.
