Wonderful, Walkable Boston
I had never been to Boston, but I had my chance recently. I was pleasantly surprised to find most of the historical sites I was interested in and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFAB) were within walking distance of my hotel in the North End. After a day of walking, I took a cab back to my hotel.
On the Freedom Trail, I especially like the Massachusetts State House and Boston Common. Since the legislators were not in session, I was able to see both the House of Representatives and Senate Chambers.
If given another opportunity, I would return to Boston just to see the MFAB for a third time. Every painting and artifact has its place; the collection is so good I couldn't believe it. Perfect choices and just the right number of objects. I would highly recommend the John Singer Sargent works.
I remember I was walking, almost running, from one wing to another along a long corridor when I stopped suddenly because of the beautiful display of Iranian pottery in the corridor. I have never done that before anywhere, even at the Louvre!
