This is a very well prepared book, where the writers and the editor did a magnificent job putting together this wonderful guide, with full description of places, that should be able to fulfill all your needs for information on that to do, how to do, where to go, how much it will cost, etc... when you are in Boston.

This guide is fully illustrated with beautiful photos and maps (including an "On the Go Map" attached on the last page of the guide) and they go deep in details on every attraction that you can find in the city and its vicinity.

They start the guide with a section named Experience Boston, orienting you on when to go, giving you some important events that happen annually (Marathon, Harborfest etc...) and Top Attractions. Then they propose some great itineraries that you can do in four days, if you are lost and have no clue from where to start during your visit to Boston. Finally they describe some of Family Favorite Programs and programs you can do for free or almost free.

After this introductory chapter, they go into details on some of top attractions, dedicating full chapters to Beacon Hill, Boston Common, and the Old West End (chapter 2), then Government Center and the North End (chapter 3), Charlestown (chapter 4), Downtown Boston (chapter 5), Back Bay and the South End (chapter 6), The Fenway (chapter 7), Boston Outskirts (chapter 8), and Cambridge (chapter 9).

Following the sequence, they start discussing Where to Eat (chapter 10) where you have a vast list of places to eat with range of price and a quick description on what the place has to offer. then we have a Boston Dining and Lodging Atlas (chapter 11) with a similar approach with descriptions on where to stay. Next is a chapter on Nightlife and Arts (chapter 12) followed by Sports and Outdoors (chapter 13), and Shopping (chapter 14). The guide finishes with suggestions for Side Trips (chapter 15).

So, overall a superb job done by the writers and editor and all people involved on producing such masterpiece. It is a must book if you have any plans to visit Boston!

Amazon.com was kind enough to provide this book for me through their Vine Program for reviewing and I was not request to provide a positive review. Opinions expressed here are my own. ( )
