Re: Boston in the fall - suggestions please!

HistoryDigger ·
Glad you're traveling again, Mac. Boston is my home town, and October is THE BEST MONTH. Where are you staying in the city? I'd walk the Freedom Trail if you're feeling up to it. Go down to the waterfront. Boston Common and Charles Street are fun places to hang out. Newbury Street is fancy shopping and also has a few fun bistros and coffee shops. The Science Museum is excellent. Plenty of seafood to be had. New England clam chowder is great if you have sweater-weather. Go whale-watching...

Re: Is Porto worth the trip?

PHeymont ·
Much as I loved my time in Porto...it's NOT a day trip. Much too much to do there, including evening stroll along the Douro, port-wine tasting across the river in Vila Nova de Gaia and more. I'd say take the advice above and save Porto for another trip. Of the recommended day trips above, I'd vote for Sintra. It's an easy trip--trains run about every 30 minutes, more frequently in rush hours, The town itself is interesting, the Moorish Castle up on the mountain and the Pena Palace above that...

Re: Visiting great places -- before they're gone

Former Member ·
TB, I have been up the Amazon River as far as Manaus. There were bugs but they were extra rad Brazilian bugs so I did not care. Should we strive to get to places before they are gone ? It is an oxymoron. In the getting there, we make the place disappear. The very fact that a new element - the visitor - is there changes the place. Margaret Mead And David Livingstone each noted that phenomenon. Anthropology is the science which tells us that people are the same the whole world over - except...
