What to see?

I hadn’t planned to book my flight to Boston for another month or two, but snapped up an insanely low airfare offer today – round-trip travel to the East Coast for only $330, including tax! That’s unbelievable. (I paid more than that twenty years ago!)

So anyway, I’ll be flying to Boston on April 2nd, and flying back home from New York City on April 9. (Mike is staying home with The Fuzz.)  My current plan is to spend April 2-5 in the Boston area, and April 6-9 in the NYC area. In addition to meeting several new weaving friends, I’m also going to be visiting some dear, dear friends that I haven’t seen in ages, and seeing family (my sister-in-law, mom, and possibly others who are coming up for the exhibit opening). It’s going to be awesome. I’m totally jazzed.

And, of course, I plan to see the sights (fibery and otherwise) while I’m there.

So…if I have a day or two to spend sightseeing in Boston and in NYC…what is a must-see?

    For the history stuff, walk the Freedom Trail in Boston, with friends or on a tour.  Eat at Legal Seafoods.  Take a Duck Boat tour.  For museums – the MFA, the Science Museum, and the Aquarium are all world-class.  (P.S. I’ve lived outside of Boston for 21 years.)

    The Gardner Museum–used to be a rich woman’s private collection, so it has a bit of *everything* (including Vermeer and Rembrandt) and great tapestries.
