It's an upscale bar / restaurant with a unique and cozy, intimate downstairs level. Sometimes a long wait, prices are a bit high for a small town, but it's busy and popular if you like a bustling atmosphere.

It has the best Greek-style pizza in town and it's just a 10 minute walk from our home. They also have a good Greek salad. There is seating inside but we always get it to go.

Farmland is a small grocery/butcher shop/bakery run by an Italian family. They have the best cold cuts, home-made salads and sides, fresh fruit and vegetables. Also very good is their bakery and butcher shop. You can't beat their marinated meats for the grill, our favorite is the lemon-pepper chicken and beef teriyaki.

Sightseeing
The Boston Duck Tours are by far the best way to see Boston and cover a lot of ground without exhaustion. It's the best 90 min tour you can take. The guides are very knowledgeable and comical, very engaging with tourists, and they let you drive the vehicle when it plunges into the Charles River. Very fun for kids and adults alike, worth the price. Buy tickets online ahead of time, they sell out quickly. You can depart from Copley Place, the Aquarium, or the Museum of Science.

Parks & Nature
There is always plenty in bloom throughout the spring, summer and fall at the Boston Public Gardens. Close to Newbury Street where tourists love to shop and dine, these gardens offer beauty and peace among the busy streets of Boston. Take a gentle ride on the Swan Boats while you are there and admire the huge willow trees.
