Besides seeing the greatest wedding ever, the Boston area has a lot of things you can do with your free time while in town:New England Aquarium
-This a great place to see aquatic life from all around the world as well as native New England species. This is also the place where you can take a charter boat out for whale watching. (Not recommended for those who aren't sea dogs).Freedom Trail
-This is the best way to see Boston I think. You start in the beautiful Boston Common and follow a red brick path through Boston and through history. Along the way you see such notable sites as Bunker Hill, Faneuil Hall, USS Constitution and much more. Plan about 3 hours of walking. Eat in the North End (Italian section) while traveling.Sam Adams Brewery
-Close to Brinda's house is the Sam Adams Brewery. The brewery gives several tours of the facility with free beer samples at the end. I can't wait until I'm old enough. Doyle's Cafe
-John's second home! Come here for the best beer and food in all of Boston. This is the best place to people watch too. Many celebrities as well as former and current mayors dine and drink here. Very family friendly.Charles River
-The "Dirty Water" as it is lovingly referred to here. Actually, it is much cleaner than it was several years ago. A beautiful place to walk. You can even catch a concert at the Haf Shell.Museum of Science
-This is a great place for kids and adults alike. Very interactive. Amazing displays. Plan on several hours.Museum of Fine Arts
-John thinks that "Monet" is something you buy things with. Please go here and tell him what it really is.
