Seems it is travel week on the ACJ blog. So, I'll tell you about my all time favorite place to visit, Boston, MA!
One place not to be missed and my favorite aquarium is the New England Aquarium. http://www.neaq.org is their official website. Stop by and just look at some of the displays, I love the touch tanks! And I could watch the penguins forever!
Another thing I can do for hours is people watch! Best place for that is Faneuil Hall Marketplace. This is a place you can spend days exploring, great shops, eateries and historic events. You might just see Ben Franklin milling about! http://www.faneuilhallmarketplace.com/?q=node
While there, make sure you eat at Durgin Park, known for their rude wait staff! The food is excellent and it's a fun place to eat: http://www.arkrestaurants.com/durgin_park.html Get there on off hours if you want a table to yourself or you might have to sit at a large table with others and eat family style. Either way, it's a hoot!
There is so much to see and do right in Boston that I'd recommend at least 7 days just for that but there's also so much to do in the surrounding areas. Salem, known for the witch hunts, is nearby and visit some famous authors houses and such. One place I have not had the pleasure of seeing is the Public Garden and have always regretted that. Don't forget to visit Cheers while there!

Have a great day!
