Let us face it, this place is out of the way, and you kind of stumble upon it, and are intrigued by its name, so you go inside. A small bar greets you, with some fantastic and talkative bartenders, who can pour a good pint...More

We stopped here for a drink. The bartender said the area begin the bar (now a street) used to be water with a port. Durty nelly's was a brothel back in the day. Just a small dive bar with unique history.

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
