In July I will be visiting Boston and I need some advice. First off, let me say that I will be staying at the Red Roof Inn Southborough. I am staying there because the soldier that I had taken care of while he was deployed is in the area of Southborough and it's easy for him to visit me when he gets off work and I am staying at the RRI because I work for the company so my room will only cost $25. Since I am staying in Southborough what is the best way to get to downtown Boston to see the sights? I really don't want to drive into the city even though I am driving to Southborough. I know I can take a taxi but is there any other options? Also, I was thinking about doing the Boston by Foot sightseeing tour. Is anyone familiar with that type of sightseeing option? I know there are those trollies where one can hop on and off and I was thinking about those but I was also thinking about the walking tour since it would be good exercise. I am into history so I want to see a lot of historical places but I'm not against seeing something that is not historical. I do know I want to do the whale watching tour. I will be by myself during the day if that matters. Sorry if this has been asked before but I am having an issue logging in and using the search function.
