When we went to Boston we went down into the downtown area (we were just there for the day) and found this little spot to eat. Very interesting food. It was this little takeout place. It was right down in the business area and it had a huge lineup of business people waiting to get food. We just had to try it. I forget what exactly they were called but they were like these massive burritos. They were delicious! mmmmm.... I wish I had one right now. If I had a map of the city I could tell you where it was (it was just a couple of blocks from the big park in the downtown area).

If I were there, I'd go check the University areas. They looked like they had some potential to be interesting (we just drove by MIT and Harvard and didn't get much of a chance to stop).

OH YES! And Cape COD!!! So much fun. That's where we spent most of our time (2 or 3 days). Went swimming. Went to Provincetown (a must). BEAUTIFUL!

there's only four things to do in Boston:

- go to Cheers (mentioned already)
- go to Gary's Olde Town Tavern
- go to Fenway Park
- have a tea party

i just remembered.....

we are thinking about crossing the border by montreal, but i heard that travelling to boston that way is slow because the roads are not as big that way, so it can get crowded. however, i think that by going via niagara, we'd get stuck in some major traffic at that border (esp. since its a long weekend), and that would take a lot of time too...

whadya think, is the fastest route to boston through Montreal or Niagara?


ps. which route do you think has less dogs sniffing around at the border? (<---is that even a question that can be answered factually? i don't know. just thought i'd ask anyway
;) )
