Top things to do in Boston Itinerary
Top things to do in Boston Itinerary. Boston in my opinion is one of the most amazing cities in the United States. Graduate school introduced me to Boston,MA, I’ve been once before on a school trip, but didn’t really have time to roam the city. It was a debate between staying in Connecticut where tuition would be less costly or attending a prestigious university where the tuition was much more expensive. Finally, I decided to take a chance on the University located in Boston. Now every time I look at my student loans, I cry, however, I don’t regret attending school in Boston because it introduced me to an amazing city and great people. If you only have a weekend to explore, here is a list of top things to do in Boston.

The Museum of Fine Arts has an excellent selection. You can spend hours at the museum and still not see all the art it has to offer. There is a little bit of something for everyone at MOFA. Also, the museum is located across from Northeastern, so feel free to tour the campus.
8:00 P.M- North End
The North end is known as “Little Italy” and is the oldest neighborhood in Boston. “Little Italy” has an abundance of restaurants and people usually flock there for the food. You may feel overwhelmed by the amount of restaurants that are in this area, so here is a list you to guide you. Before or after you have had your meal, tour the area.
9:00 A.M– Faneuil Hall Market Place
Fanueil Hall is a dining center with a number of shops and stores.Boston in my opinion should be known for its food in addition to the rich history because food is everywhere you turn. Right behind Fanueil Hall is Quincy Market. In the same area is the New England Holocaust Memorial and Rose Kennedy Green-way, where you can view the most recent public art pieces.
