From Socal to NYC & BOSTON <HELP>

OK Guys,

Help a fellow TW Socal guy out.

I'll be arriving in Boston w/the GF on Friday (4/29).
Driving from Boston to NYC on Saturday (4/30)
Back to Boston on Monday (5/1).
Flying back out on Tuesday (5/2)

So my question is for all the locals. Where to go, where to eat, what to do. This is something I'd like to know. Any helpful tips on what not to do, where not to go. etc.

We plan to drive up the coast on Boston to Maine perhaps.

I'm looking for the BEST Clam Chowder & Seafood also. I've been craving a darn good Clam Chowder. I need to know this!


If you're heading to Socal, I can point you to all the local places most don't know of.



Thanks in Advance

Not a fan of clam chowder myself but if you go to some good seafood restaurants like legal seafood, you sbould be satisfied. Me personally, id recommend anna''s taqueria for mexican, its like chipotle only smaller. Also there are a few "wings over (framingham for example)" and they have outstanding wings obviously, and they are open till 4 am lol... my personal favorite are alot of the local pubs, and a small chain called british beer company. Check it out if you like beer, their pizza is awesome. These are all metro or suburban boston, easily found with google. As for in town, definitely go to quincy market in fanueil(?) Market... a ton of small shops to buy food, pastries, and clothing or souvenirs. If you love pastries, you NEED to go to mikes pastries in the north end. Its within walking distance of quincy market and just about anyone should be able to give you directions. Any otber questions ill try to belp you out! Oh yeah and nyc try katz deli... best pastrami sandwich ive ever had

Oh yeah if there is time, do the freedom trail with your girl, the history in boston is unmatched, and that will give you a brief overview on alot of important things that happened during the revolution.

I wouldnt recommend Legal seafood as a must go-to place while visiting. Been there, done that and I think its much more of a name thing than it is a quality seafood place...I just dont find anything special about it honestly.

Boston to Maine might be too much in short period of time, but if you wind up in Portland, fivefiftyfive restaurant was outstanding.

Agreed on Freedom Trail. If its a nice day out, the trail is fun to walk and you'll see some cool historical locations. http://thefreedomtrail.org/visitor/visitor.html

Whats your interests? Have you ever been here before? That helps to narrow down places to see and things to do.

When you get the Boston, you definitely want to hit the Union Oyster House. I love the place! Its right in Faneuil Hall. . Really good seafood and one of the oldest restaurants in America. Maybe not the best Chowda but pretty damn good!

Faneuil Hall area is a good place to visit as well... Little Italy is right there and you cant go wrong with most of the resuarants there

Mike's Pasteries in Boston's North End! There's usually a line but it's worth it. I'd stay away from Legal Seafood as BlueT said. It's got great food, but nothing spectacular. British Beer Company is alright, if you like beer visit the Sunset Grille in Allston. They have a full menu of beers, something like 200+ beers on tap and lots more in bottles. The food is pretty decent also but it can get crowded on the weekends. I'd look up Phantom Gourmet, they do ratings on a bunch of little hole in the wall places in New England and the food at some of them is incredible and cheap! They're on TV on the weekends but have a website with their reviews of various places in MA, CT, RI, NH and ME.

And, as others have mentioned, Quincy Market in Faneul Hall is worth the trip.

Dude , you guys are AWESOME.

We've gathered a ton of info and we're just about off. I'm really excited and NO, i've never been to the east coast.

Yes, I will not be having Mexican, Chinese, Thai, Peruvian, Indian food while I'm out there. Why? I've had the best out here in Socal. That is coming from people I know that lived IN NY that no resides out here.

So I will be taking your other quality advice and working with it.


Thanks so much guys!

If you got more help, tips,advice, I'm all EARS!


CHEEERRRS!
