Going to Boston tomorrow - advice?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm taking the train down with DH and my inlaws and we are staying in the North End for the day. Does anyone have an awesome shops that we can go to? I love jewelry, fun artsy stuff, toys, mac, stuff like that - food! We are definitely going to Mike's Pastry (yum) I just don't want to spend the entire day walking and doing nothing.

I always love to go to Quincy Marketplace and Fanueil Hall. The Aquarium is also really cool. I'm not too sure how close that is to the North End though.

Check out some of the posts here about the North End. They may help:

Here's a store list:

Wander outside the area a bit as well. If I remember right there are also some nice shops and restaurants on the streets nearby.

My husband traveled to Boston and when he came home he also said the same thing. It was neat to look at, but overall he didn't really like it.
