where is the downtown crossing? I've been to boston once but only spent very little time there. I've been to Pru loved it By T do u mean the bus or train? for some weird reason someone told me that the buses and trains are called T?Newbury Street for GREAT shopping (and food), Fanuel Hall (for more shopping) and you MUST go to Durgin Park Restraunt (famous for the prime rib) which is in Fanuel Hall, it wouldnt be a trip to boston with out it! Downtown Crossing for - you guessed it- shopping. Also Go to the Pru (Prudential Center) and do the sky walk, its about 50 (i think) stories up and you can see the entire city from a 360 degree birds eye view. The Aquarium and Mueseaum of Science (need to see an Omni Theater show!) are a blast, Museum of Fine Arts is always classic - if you like museums take the T to Harvard University and check out the Fogg Museum. So much more but those are my favorite things to do there!!
i really hope the weather won't be as bad as it is here. Oooh that fugakyu sounds good..saw really good reviews on it. I just read about Mike's pastry. I guess it is a must to go to. I will definitely check that out, I love pastry. thanks!definitely newbury street for shops and restaurants. the pru and copley for more high end shopping.
downtown crossing is near the common. it is a t (subway) stop. has H&M among other stores. www.mbta.com has all the info you need for traveling by subway/bus.
two really good japanese restaurants imo are ginza and fugakyu....which are both near the boston univ. campus. they are very close to t stops on the green line on the C line part of the green going outbound.
december it gets pretty cold....but i don't think its as severe as midwest weather?
mike's pastry in the north end always gets rave reviews. haven't been there myself (i don't know what i was thinking). www.mikespastry.com
how's the weather in Boston during december? I'm going mid december. I hope its not worse than midwest weather.
Oh and any suggestions for a really good Japanese restaurant in Boston? I'd love to splurge on dinner for one night. And also recommendations for good bakeries. thanks!
