I have done a bit of traveling but I have never been to northeastern parts of the U.S. I would very much like to tour Boston and see all the sights, historic and otherwise. I would love to take one of those self-guided audio tours, so I can walk around at my own speed and hear the stories as I go. I also love the idea of sailing ships and harbor activities, and at least in my mind (which I will admit has limited geographic knowledge) that is also a big part of Boston.
Mostly it is a city I'd like to see because I would like to know what else it is ... I am feeling really stupid, like I'd better do some googling before I publish this post, since I can't really list anything else about Boston. The Red Sox are there...Harvard is there (I only know this thanks to Good Will Hunting, thank Matt and Ben)...people talk funny (I can say this because you all remember the movie Fargo and how everyone in your movie theater laughed at everyone's accent? Yeah, that's how I talk - seriously)...what else is notable to Boston?
