After a good night sleep, we headed for breakfast @ Dunkin' Donut. I thought Starbucks in New York was excessive, but Dunkin' Donuts is on every corner. The Canadian Tim Horton’s is slowly moving in.
Arriving downtown Boston, parking is $$ and I recommends to using the mbta.com in and out of downtown. We end up parking behind Lowes Theater off Boylston and Tremont. With new iphone 3GS and its navigation tool we were off and walking. The Boston Common is the oldest park in the country and a breathtaking area to relax. The activities going on are for the young and old. The game plan was to walk to Boston Duck Tour @ The Prudential Center. We followed the navigation tool and walked around, up, down, and across Charles Street. It took us 3.5 hours to get Center, only to miss the last tour of the day. During lunch inside the Prudential Center, we laughed and just remember the pictures, area tourism sites and people we bump into. For example, we meet a couple going into their apartment with Bernese mountain dog, state house and churches.
With the new iphones, we visit the Apple Store across from the Prudential Center. The store is 4 levels and as always customer services is first-rate. The next purchase will be Mac Pro.
We took a taxi down to the Wharf’s to see the Sail Boston (Tall Ships). The architect and grace of the ships in the water are amazing.
We found out that Boston Duck tour was available and the tour was leaving in 15 minutes. This tour was shorter than Prudential Center but not much of differences. Our driver had Boston sport theme outfit and was very colorful. The driver knew a lot of Boston and took his job earnestly.
We ate some the street vendor’s food and headed back to car for the hotel.
