Wicked Good Guides / Boston for Visitors / What to see


Museums - Boston has more museums than you can shake a stick at, from art (several) to the Children's Museum.

Guidebooks - Sure, online guides are great, but you can't really lug 'em around Beacon Hill...

More tourism resources

I want to visit Boston. How can I get some tourist brochures mailed to me?

Visit the state tourism office at www.mass-vacation.com or call
it (in the U.S. or Canada) at (800) 227-6277.

I'm coming to Boston soon. Where can I find out what plays are showing and who's playing in the clubs?

TheaterMirror has listings for current and opening plays in Boston. The Boston Phoenix's Listings page lets you search by club or band. Unfortunately, it's only for the current week.

We have a camper and we want to see Boston. Where are the campgrounds?

Boston has many attractions, but campgrounds aren't among them. The nearest ones are 30 to 45 minutes away, in such places as Plymouth, Scituate, Wrentham and Gloucester.

Plymouth (south of the city on I-93) and Gloucester (north of the city at the end of Rte. 128) are tourist attractions in their own right; Scituate and Wrentham are mainly places to stay to get to someplace else (if you come in the fall and decide to stay in Wrenthm, check first to make sure the Patriots aren't playing at home; else you might get stuck in some horrendous traffic jams on Sunday). Here's a listing of Massachusetts campgrounds (as noted above, look for Plymouth, Scituate, Wrentham and Gloucester).

I want to take a Duck Tour.

You'll get all the info you need on these unusual tours (in which you're driven around the city for a tour and then into the Charles River for a cruise) at their Web site


you web page is too sterile. it needs more pictures. It dow not make you want to hang out in Boston at all.
