Perfect spot for some cheap beers and cool bartenders. Stop here for a couple with my daughter, although she wasn't thrilled, turned out to be a good time. If your in the area definitely stop in. Boston at it finest... Well for a dive bar....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.

Next to open Boston open air Market. Small with very few tables and probably 15 bar stools. About 8 beers on tap. Old feel and look bar/pub. One small M/F washroom. You can enter from an alley in the back also.

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
