Things to do in Boston


If you buy ticket for the T (the name of Boston's subway system) from the machine in the station, you will pay 50 cents more per ride than if you get a reloadable plastic Charlie Card.

Tried to get one, but the station that i enter do not have it. The station attendant said that not all station have it. So i ended up buying a 1-day pass which is around $12. if you are planning on riding on less than 5, maybe its better for you to buy a ride ticket instead.


Marijuana is now legal in Boston. I don't use drug. But they said that using the drug in public place is still prohibited, but people can now legally purchase and possess cannabis in Massachusetts. Quoting from a travel note from a magazine, it said that the closest recreational marijuana dispensary to Boston is NETA in Brookline Village. It is also prohibited to try bring it across state lines.


Several shopping places in the city are: Downtown Crossing shopping center; Faneuil Hall Marketplace & Quincy Market; shops at Prudential Center; Newbury Street, SoWa Open Market; CambridgeSide Galeria; and Outlets at Assembly Row.


There are many restaurants at Downtown/Financial District (Sam LaGrassa, Mike & Patty, Grainmaker, Sterlings); South End (Beehive, Cinquecento, Boston Chops, Orinoco); Beacon Hill (Mooo, Cheers); Theatre District (Legal Sea Foods, Maggiano); Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market (many food shops), Newbury Street; Boylton Street; Copley Square; Fenway/Kenmore Square; North End/Little Italy (Mike's pastry, Giacomo); Chinatown (Pho Pasteur, Shabu Zen, Peach Farm).

The city also offers a variety of historical sites on the Freedom Trail - a walking tour starting at the Boston Common leading to the Bunker Hill Monument. You can explore sites such as the Old South Meeting House.
