|Subject: RE: Boston recommendations|
Hi Guillermo -
I live in Boston (originally from NY, too) and agree with all information that was given to you, except one! Forget Mike's Pastry in the North End. It is very touristy and should be missed - Also, the pastry is not very good anymore. Also, I would recommend the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (across from Northeastern University) It has one of the the finest Egyptian exhibits in the world and the special exhibits are outstanding! They also have a fine collection of Impressionists. The new wing to the museum was designed by I.M.Pei (as is the Hancock Tower Bldg. in Copley Square - Boston) All of the major temporary exhibits are in that wing and they usually are outstanding, too. By the way, when you do go to visit Harvard Square, and if you like museums, visit the Fogg Museum at the University - It's a small gem!
If you tell me the ages of your children and when you plan to be in Boston, I will be able to help you out in greater detail.
I would also recommend the Science Museum in Boston - one of the best we've ever been to in the USA - also if you have time while you visit, get tickets for and take in whatever is playing at the Omnimax cinema. It will be an extraordinary experience. Let me know how else I can help and what kind of food (or food experience) you are looking for. Susie (Newton, MA - suburb of Boston)
