I could not have had the marvellous holiday I had without this book's guidance. Only one single dislike: the edition I got showed a "hidden alleyway and garden" on the cover - it looked like the entry to heaven - but it was not even mentioned in the contents and could not be found. However, all the historic and ground-breaking buildings were made easily accessible, and very importantly to me, the restaurant guide was excellent. Very highly recommended. You must know where to go when you arrive or you will be robbed right, left and center. This book guides you in all the ways you need.

Don't leave home without it 17 Jun. 2008
By E. Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We used Frommer's in a recent train trip, and this was the first major city we visited on the trip. And it made me thankful that I purchased the editions for the other cities we later visited. I had visited Boston once before a decade and a half ago, but this time I had three children in tow. I wanted to make sure that we paced ourselves for the three days that we were there, and the book allowed me to do so. I was able to pick activities that the kids would like--including the Freedom Trail, a short 1-hour cruise to the USS Constitution, and Fenway Park. Frommer's has an excellent Freedom Trail section that you will want to keep your finger in as you walk along site by site. There were many excellent suggestions the book made about a number of things, including a short (positive) review about our hotel (the Midtown Hotel, which we were extremely pleased with in regards to location and price). Except for being wrong on some of the admission prices to some of the sites--just a buck or two--the book was fairly accurate in everything else we looked up, which I thought was pretty impressive. In addition, I recommend picking up an Entertainment book for your city--they're only $10 after the spring--as we used food and entertainment coupons in Boston that saved us more than $100. Two-fer-ones and excellent discounted fares made it more bearable to do a few extras, especially for us on a limited budget. Whether or not you've been to Boston before, I highly recommend Frommer's for getting around with the best possible information at your fingertips.

We loved Boston and this book helped a lot!! 12 Jun. 2008

We went to Boston in April of 2008. It was a beautiful time to go. I know most people go to the Northeast in the fall for the leaves, but I had never been anywhere in the Northeast before, so we went in April. There are less people there than leaf time, from what I have read. The book helped us with all of our planning. My favorite part is the hours of operation listed for the attractions. That helps you plan ahead so you do not miss something because it is closed on Monday and you waited until Monday to go. I recommend this book, I used this publisher for our San Francisco trip too.

Fine overview, but not enough detail. 13 Aug. 2008
By H. Rhoades - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for a week of solo sightseeing before a friend's wedding. The walking tours looked great on the page, but were difficult to follow in reality and had very little information about each sight (luckily the most famous walking tour in Boston, The Freedom Trail, is marked by a red or brick line throughout the city so no directions are needed). I never found any incorrect information, but it all felt very cursory and left me looking online or calling locations for more detail. My primary problem with the book was the lack of dining information - it listed so few restaurants that it was nearly impossible to find one in my area and my price range at any given time. The best tip from the book was one that even my friends who visit Boston frequently didn't know about - the 7-day T-Pass sold at any ticketing kiosk offered huge savings for all public transport - only $15. I'm not sure there are a lot of better options out there for Boston guidebooks, so just make sure to gather some extra information before you go and avoid relying solely on this book.
