Hi ladies. There are 2 new and excellent resources posted that discuss things to do and places to stay while visiting Boston. A large majority of patients come in from out of town and choose to visit Boston during their trip as it is only an hour south of Manchester.
Visiting Boston Part I
Visiting Boston Part I discusses popular attractions, such as: The Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market, Harvard Square, Newbury Street, The North End, and Beacon Hill areas.
Visiting Boston Part II
Visiting Boston Part II discusses accommodations, such as: hotels close to Logan Airport (Hilton) and hotels in Boston (Omni Parker House and Boston Harbor Hotel). It further discusses Things to do in Boston, including: horse-drawn carriage rides; Spirit of Boston cruises; dinner in the North End, Durgin Park in Faneuil Hall, or at the Top of the Hop in the Prudential Center; shopping on Newbury Street; or even warming up with some hot cocoa at Burdick Café in Harvard Square.
Also, for those patients with upcoming procedures during the holiday season, there is a wonderful display of lights in sync with the sounds of the Boston Pops (Blink!) right in the center of Faneuil Hall.
“Blink! featuring the music of the Holiday Pops, is a 6-week state-of-the-art light and sound extravaganza that has transformed every inch of America’s first open marketplace. This magical and unforgettable new holiday tradition uses over 350,000 LED lights to illuminate Boston’s skyline. Blink! is a must-see holiday show, perfect for all ages.”
For the veterans who have had their procedures and visited Boston, do you have any further suggestions or particular things you did/places you stayed that you would recommend to others??March 3, 2014 at 9:47 am #12577Heather34Moderator
Hi ladies. In an excellent post, a treated patient wrote the following recommendation for accommodations in Boston:
“The hotel we stayed at was the Hyatt Regency — http://regencyboston.hyatt.com/en/hotel/home.html
It looked like a pretty fancy place, so I’m not sure how expensive it would be to pay full price for, like I said we got a great deal through hotwire. 🙂 It was the PERFECT location, my hubby and I were so pleased about it! Also, they allowed us to check in around 11:45am when check in time wasn’t until 4, and with no extra charge.”
