Boston (Massachusetts) Reviews
Newest Review: ... defended by John Adams, later, President John Adams. Given the location, and a trial by local jurymen, this was no mean feat. Even the guilty were punished by branding on their thumbs, not the death sentence. It has to be said in hindsight that maybe the way to keep 16,000 riot-prone settlers (they were British after all!) happy, and with it, a huge New World colony was NOT to send 4,000 troops to 'defend' them, billeting them on luckless householders in some cases. It goes part-way to explaining the tinder-box nature of Boston vis-à-vis the American independence movement. As for the tax on tea, well, that was just asking for trouble........ more

Sorry couldn't resist the title. Boston Manor is (nearly) my nearest Piccadilly Line station! FROM ONE EX-COUNTY OF MIDDLESEX TO ANOTHER Where do you start with describing an entire city; particularly one like Boston where I've recently spent 8 highly-enjoyable days? When my wife first announced that we were going there, I must admit I did have some trepidation. After all, more than a week in a busy city didn't sound like a formula for a relaxing break. However, factor in the means by which we went there, already documented in another opinion on Amtrak, and also the nature of our accommodation and you'll see why maybe it wasn't the ...

*** I've finally solved the mystery of why the links I've posted are not working. For some reason dooyoo decides to add a space in between year_book and 08 which completely messes up the link. If you are interested in seeing the photos you just need to remove the space that dooyoo have added*** There's one point I always fear when about to go on holiday and that's my dad at airports. He's usually quite a strong minded person and an aggressive driver but mention that we're en-route to Heathrow airport and he will go weak in the knees and be so awkward and paranoid and be such a difficult man to be around. I feel sorry for the check-in lady who had to put up ... Read the complete review

Boston is one of my favourite cities for many reasons. I first went there last summer and can't wait to go back. I love Boston because there is so much to do, when I was there I went to Quincy market which i right in the centre of town and has such a mix of different shops and stalls. Its also brimming with street entertainers, all of whom were actually very talented and great to watch. (Although it was the summer holidays, this might not be the case all year round). I also spent a lot of time at the harbour side, which is so beautiful and some of the yachts there were about 6 times the size of my house, they were incredible and apparently one was owned by ...

Last summer, well in terms of years because we all know about Britain's weather, was really special as i took a trip to the states and visited New England taking the lovely city of Boston. I stayed in a hotel on the very edge of the centre, very close to the two biggest buildings in MAS. The Prudential Tower and The John Hancock Building. A trip to the top during the day and at night is most reccommended as you get to thw hole of Boston if the whether is fine. The centre of Boston is brilliant, with shopping areas, bars, restaurants and cafes as well as quincy market, a food court lasting the length of the old building with multi-cultural food on offer. Also the ... Read the complete review

Boston is a truly wonderful place. It's a city but it doesn't feel like your typical American city such as New York. It's almost like a big town. Most of the people are friendly, their isn't much pollution about. It's not your biggest city which is a plus point and I didn't have too much finding my way around. Another plus point about this place is that it isn't too overcrowded so walking about and window shopping ins't too difficult. Becuase this is America EVERYTHING is cheap. Especially in this city. you can get clothes, electronics, etc, etc for almost HALF the price! These prices were outrages and they aren't blackmarket products. Read the complete review
