Boston, Massachusetts

I’m not that good at writing, so I’ll keep it to bulleted points with ratings and short notes where applicable.

Background: This was a short weekend trip in July 2018.

Hotel:
•   Hilton Boston Back Bay- 4/5
  • Cash Booking
  • This hotel is not very close to Boston Commons, where we wanted to spend our Shabbos downtime,  but it is close to Chabad so that made the decision for us.

Food:
•   We ate Shabbos meals at the wonderful Chabad on Commonwealth Ave- 4/5
•   The Kosher Wok- 3/5

Activities:
•   We purchased a 3-day Boston GoCard
•   Hop on Hop Off- 4/5
  • Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the history of Boston and kept us all entertained.
•   New England Aquarium- 3/5
•   Freedom Trail Walking Tour- 4/5
•   Museum of Science- 3/5
•   Skywalk Observatory 4/5
  • They had an interesting film about immigration to Boston, and how the various neighborhoods developed.
•   MIT Museum- 3/5
  • The museum itself is rather boring. A lot of scrap robots…but there was a little gem at the back of the museum. Tiny little art sculptures that are set up as perpetual machines- words can’t really describe it, but it was fascinating.
•   Boston Commons & Boston Public Gardens - 3/5
  • We walked around here for hours on Shabbos afternoon
