Okay - back from Austin, and while I was there, I tried to make a list of the stuff I did last time I was in Boston (2013):
We also stayed at the Sheraton on Dalton! So I did a bunch of strolling along Newberry Street. Had lunch at La Voile (261 Newberry), a cute French Bistro with good food and lovely wine. Also had lunch at Trident Books Cafe (338 Newberry) and enjoyed that - plus it's a bookstore!
There's a beautiful church at 67 Newberry - Church of the Covenant, that's open to walk through during the day. Got some great photos.
Did a tour of Fenway (and a game), went to MFA (they had a great costume/fashion exhibit at the time) and took a walking tour of the North End (sorry, don't remember which company, but it was inexpensive and very interesting). I also saw Robert Plant at the outdoor concert venue, but that was time-specific 🙂
I walked through Cambridge one day looking for a restaurant that was closed. And, I walked around the theatre district since this trip was for a stagehands convention and figured I'd see how the neighborhood was looking after not having been there for a long time. It's still the same.
I've been to Boston a bunch of times before. The Freedom Trail is great if the weather is good. Toured city hall. There's always the JFK Library. And have I mentioned the Saux?
I just wish I'd been better about keeping a record of places we went for dinner. If I think of some, I'll post.
Have fun - I like Boston a lot!
