is a fun town to visit, especially if you get the chance during St. Patrick's
Day. The aquarium and Rowe's Wharf are great places to walk around
and see the city. The Sheraton and Fairmont are good places to stay.
If you stay at the Sheraton make sure you walk over to the Prudential building
and have a drink at the bar at the top, which gives you great views of
back bay and the Charles rivers. Make sure you hit Beacon Hill area,
Boston Common and Copley Plaza on your trip. Boston has some great
food and awesome bars, some of my favorite bars are Whiskey's, the Black
Rose and the Purple Shamrock. You can't go wrong with any restaurant
or bar you find on Boylston or Beacon Street. If you have time walk
around the campuses of BU and Boston College hit Harvard square.
New York, NY:
York is my kind of town, no pun intended. It definitely does not
sleep as I have seen the sunshine many times in the early morning;-)
While it does have a great nightlife the culture, museums and attractions
are fantastic. Must visits include the Met (Metropolitan Museum of
Art), the Gugg (Guggenheim Museum) and St. Patrick's Cathedral to name
a few. A stroll through Central Park and hitting the zoo is a great
way to enjoy a nice NY weekend. You can't go wrong with hotels in
NY, some of my favorites are the Waldorf Astoria, any of the W's, the Plaza
and the Hyatt at Union Square. The new W's have some good restaurants
and bars, I like the Wetbar (E39th) and Whiskey Blue's (Lexington).
You have to hit Soho and the Village to people watch. If you have
time check out Rockefeller Center (especially during Christmas with the
tree) and Union Square. Have a drink in the back bar at the Hyatt
at Union Square (tell Ulysses hi) and the lobby bar at my favorite hotel
the Plaza. Make sure you hit the best bar ever Doc Holiday's (9th/Ave
A) and order the chili with a PBR (tell the lovely Joanna and Valerie hello!!).
A ferry ride by the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is a spectator thing
to complete your visit. Enjoy....
is a nice small town. Staying at the Sheraton on Waterside is the
best. It is close to the bars and restaurants and gives you a beautiful
view of the waterway and the boats. Make sure you stroll through
town and venture into some of the nice little stores. Bodega's has
some great dishes and is a nice quiet bar.
