Dropped in for dinner with another couple, staying at Omni Parker Hotel. The food was good, we had the Triple Irish, the Irish Stew and the Shepard's Pie, quite large meals. The service was excellent, the prices not too bad. Excellent desserts as well.

We loved this authentic Irish pub, everything from the food to the live music! They have the best hot cider ever. It can get very busy, but worth the wait.

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
