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...

Just as some people plan scaling a peak, or skiing a famous trail or some other peak experience, we always plan a splurge meal or two into our itineraries—especially in cities like Paris and Bologna that are especially famed for food. On the one hand, the price is sometimes out of our comfort zone (please don't ask what we spent on our 35th anniversary!), but on the other, we are fairly frugal travelers otherwise, opting for comfortable apartments over luxury hotels, etc. It almost feels as...
