I'll spend about 5 days in Boston for a US trip ill make down in April.
What activities/places should I do/visit?
Find your wooden leg!
If it were me I'd definitely consider all of the revolutionary war landmarks, you know, Boston Tea Party Museum!
As a Fallout 4 fan, this pleases me
go have a wicked pissah and check out the local bubbler
Even if it's not in Brooklyn.
I may go to Brooklyn. I'll spend a few days in New York.
Brooklyn is a cool neighborhood, lots of good bars. Go to Chinatown in Boston while you're there, it's an awesome area and the community there is wicked vibrant.
Brooklyn = Park Slope
Be sure to legally smoke some pot during your stay
Boylston St (I think) and Newbury St have good food
Hang out with fast boi
Eat some of their pizza
come see me get upset at our shithat twist rinser at Harpoon
if you're into streetwear at all there's this spot called Bodega I really enjoyed
looks like a tiny, literal bodega, then you walk up to a vending machine and the whole front slides open and it's a doorway to a big ass room full of clothing and shoes
also a sick burger spot nearby, boston burger co.
I also remember there being a cool record store called Nuggets off of Commonwealth. lots to walk around and see around there.
check out the nice park in the center of the city too.
was only there for a weekend so that's all I really know, hope you have fun.
as a fallout 4 fan beantown brewery is harpoon and I refuse to accept otherwise and I can't delete that quote on mobile so I had to write a reply
Speaking of record stores, there's a place called In Your Ear, there's one in Allston, and one in Harvard Square, but the Harvard Square one has super flaky hours so if you want to check it out, go to the Allston one. Tapes, video cassettes, 8tracks, vinyl, CDs, you name it. They're fucking awesome and a total gem if you're an audiophile.
-The aquarium is very cool, it can be crowded certain periods, but from my experience they move through at a decent pace.
-The Museum of science has plenty of amazing stuff to see, especially the Tesla coil exhibit.
-The Museum of fine arts, beautiful galleries and exhibits, it also has some collections of ancient Egyptian and Greco-Roman sculptures and artifacts.
-You might also want to explore Fort Warren on Georges island, the real Fort Independence "the castle" from FO4.
It has a nice indoor museum, and they let you explore almost all of the fort, the place is absolutely huge and has some incredible architecture in places.
Just be careful not to disturb the seabird nests around certain areas.
The ferry ride over to Fort Warren is also cool, it passes the end of the runway at Logan airport and let's you view planes taking off up close. Be sure to dress warm!
-Codzilla is a speed boat tour "2,800 HP fukin thing" that docks close to the aquarium. I wasn't sure what to think of it when I was on it,
but expect to get a little wet, and don't bring anything you'd easily lose.
-The subway is a decent way of getting around quickly, I'm a bit of a Metro nerd, so I thought seeing the subway for the first time was very cool,
mainly on the Blue line as it has newer, cleaner trains.
do the Museum of Science and Museum of Fine Arts if that's your thing. weather should hopefully be alright in April for you. check out downtown Cambridge, which is literally just across the river - the subway will take you everywhere. go to Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage. go down to the seaport and get some fresh fahkin oysters kid
Go on a DUCK tour, or if they're not running, steal one. The drivers of those thigns make the best worst jokes. Some of them do full city tour, then drive off into the water.
Pretty much everything's already been said. Landmarks, Museums, Food, and Duck Tours are the best parts of Boston, there's not much I can think of unless I've been living under a rock for the past 20 years.
taylor egg and ham sandwiches and some fukin gorilla biscuits
Play this on loop the entire time:
I did that on my trip there and the redsocks won some stuff. Coincidence? I think not.
So, Facepunch Boston meetup?
The Boston accent is among my favourite English accents
see you in april
Well, I don't know yet. :V
