... that crisscrossed the city. The space above, where the freeways used to be, have been converted into parks with fountains, statues and playgrounds. The longest stretch is called the Rose Kennedy Park. Senator Ted Kennedy was involved in raising a large portion of the initial funding required so the park was named after his mother. Additional taxes and tolls were imposed to cover the remaining cost and commuters are still paying these today. Driving south it is easy to ...
... then featured shops and rooms done up in the 1960s style during Kennedy's campaign. The only thing it was missing was a typical Irish home in the sixties which all had a photo of JFK up on the wall!!!! The museum included TV sets for the first American televised debates. Because John Kennedy's father had worked in Hollywood and had ties John Kennedy was very. Comfortable on TV and knew how to 'work a camera' which came in his advantage during his campaign. There was one clip ...

However I followed the instructions from the hostel's website and was able to take the Metro to the door, which was good. Also a kind man lifted my bag on and off the terminal shuttle bus. He was there with his children and wife and I was very thankful. I can lift my own bag,but it was a busy bus and being ...
... night. The following day, Diny took me to the museum of fine art. Really random exhibitions about quilts and the colour pink. We learnt all about how men used to wear dresses and that oasis is really bad for the flowers in an arrangement (take note all your florists out there!). Look out for the photo of the bouquet that a woman made in the flower arranging masterclass...it is probably one of the best bouquets I have ever seen. The Asian art is very intricate and I took a photo ...
... snooze, by blazing the Freedom Trail. It starts in Boston Common, the first public park commissioned in America in 1634. In its time it has been used for cattle grazing, military staging and the site of the stocks in Puritan society; now, locals and tourists relax by the pond and the trees show all the vivid colours of the New England autumn.
The trail takes you through the heart of the city via various state houses and chapels from ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Appleton Street - Herbst Haus Boston
Very nice typical Boston house
We enjoyed our stay in Boston in this Country Inn very much. We felt like 'at home'. Breakfast was very nice (fresh fruit salad, muffins, toast, juice, marmelade....) We had nice discussions with the owner and got good recommendations for the town.
After our trip through Maine and Vermont we even returned to the HerbstHaus in Boston for our last night before departing.
My husband and I visited Boston in the fall of 2003 and had a great stay at Herbst Haus. We were doing a lot of sightseeing while we were there and the location of the inn can't be beat. It was really conveniently located near a "T" stop and a lot of cross-town buses - very important to the budget traveler or certainly anyone who doesn't want to drive in Boston.
For my first visit to Boston I was attending a continuing education course and I wanted to stay somewhere more personal and quiet compared to a larger hotel. After searching the internet I located Herbst Haus and contacted Kay Herbst. I spoke with her several times before I made my trip since I was travelling alone and I was a bit nervous. I was elated when the trip from the airport to Herbst Haus was rather easy.
Herbst Haus Bed and Breakfast
Herbst Haus has a great location. Very safe and easy access to the subway, siteseeing, shopping and downtown in general. It is in a quiet neighborhood that is safe. The owner Kaye is very friendly and accomodating. You can come and go as you please.
For a lovely location and comfortable amenities Herbst Haus is an ideal Bed and Breakfast location to stay in while in Boston.
We stayed at Herbst Haus during our visit to Boston in September 2004. We found the B&B on the internet, and the lovely welcoming site with pleasing pictures of the two bedrooms available appealed as we didn't want to stay in "just another hotel".
HERBSTHAUS, AT HOME IN BOSTON
Imagine attending a professional conference away from home and wanting some time for yourself to relax. Well, while I attended my medical conference in Boston I made the best decision in staying at Kay's B&B HerbstHaus. It was just perfectly located close to shops, restaurants and transportation. The neighborhood this B&B is located in lends itself for nice walks any time of day and night. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were cozy, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nutritious and healthy and Kay, the innkeeper, was the most resourceful person you'll ever want to meet when visiting a new city. No doubt I would stay here again and again...
The most amazing place to stay in Boston is the Herbst Haus!!
From the moment I arrived, I knew that I would never stay in any other hotel in Boston again! Kay Herbst has created a charming, comfortable, and warm inn, where one can get to know new people and/or enjoy a nice conversation with Kay. The Herbst Haus is located in the perfect spot: the South End of Boston within walking distance of Copley Square and all of its excitement. One can also be at the public transportation within minutes, which takes one to all the sights and sounds of historical and modern Boston!! The rooms are big, but cozy...and very clean. The breakfast Kay offers is generous and delicious, and comes fresh with a smile. Herbst Haus is reasonable, convenient, and a wonderful place to spend an evening while in Boston.
Charming, friendly, affordable, convenient
We stayed at Herbst Haus for 2 nights in early November 2004 and found it quiet, extremely comfortable, and very convenient. Kay Herbst, the owner/host, made us feel so welcome and helped with recommendations and reservations for restaurants, neighborhood places to park, directions and maps--both driving and walking--to our favorite places like Symphony Hall and the Museum of Fine Arts. Breakfasts were excellent--good coffee; healthful and delicious fruits, nuts, yoghurt, plus excellent coffeecakes or rolls. We look forward to returning in the spring.
