We spent a very happy couple of hours in this pub which appeared to be full of locals enjoying themselves. There were not too many tourists. The choice of ale was impressive. We also ate here and enjoyed fish and chips and rich, buttery lobster...More

Best meal we had in Boston. I had the mayflower beef sandwich and it was great. Truffle fries are tasty. My husband had a burger made just the way he like it. Very satisfied.

Nice cool and dim pub to duck into during the heat of the afternoon. I had the fish and chips and enjoyed a couple Sebago run about red ales. This afternoon just got better! The freedom trail takes you right by their front door!

We were hot and hungry and randomly stumbled in to this restaurant. Little did we know this would be our BEST meal in Boston! Great atmosphere, clean, and friendly staff. But the food is what knocked the ball out of the park. "The Mayflower" sliced...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
