Top Ten places to avoid in Boston
Aug 28, 2013
About the Guidebook
Coming to Boston for the first time, there's a plethora of stuff to see. From historical sites, to museums and famous roads traveled by some of the earliest pioneers of America. Having lived in a few famous and historic parts of the city, I know that these sites aren't all they're cracked up to be.
You'll thank me when you leave for avoiding the crowds of tourists that flock to this city. You'll also be thankful that this travel guide will give you back some time on your trip here to not waste spending time, money and effort seeing places that aren't worthwhile. I'll make some alternative suggestions and also tips on better spots to best take in the city.
Local Knowledge & Cool Perks
Boston, don't get me wrong, is a wonderful city; that's why I live here. It's also very narrowly followed by tourists in a straight line - See the 10 things that are on every guide book or the internet and leave with a bunch of pictures that you could get on Google.
I want you to walk away with a much richer understanding of these sites and places. I'll make some suggestions that are worth the detours and time and push you past the traps the tourism bureau has laid out.
Feel free to see what you want, but I'm looking out for you - I hope you would do the same if I came to where you lived!
