So the wife and I closing in on 10 years of marriage. June 28th to be precise. We're trying to come up with a good domestic place to go for a vacation. We're looking for somewhere we haven't already been (Hawaii, most of the west coast and Arizona) and are strongly considering Boston.
Can anyone familiar with the city provide insight into this destination as a vacation spot? The pluses for me is that it's an old city with a lot of history that I've never been to, the minus is that I heard it's pretty hard to get around and I don't know if I can tolerate being surrounded by Irish heathens. I do want to catch a game at Fenway if that works out. Anyone with actual knowledge of the city would be welcome to offer their opinion of places to visit, etc, if they think it's a good idea. Another reason we're not 100% convinced on Boston is that we'd like the trip to be somewhat relaxing and I'm not sure Boston is a good destination for that.
I'd also welcome suggestions for other destinations and what they have to offer that would be better than Boston. I'll add that we've ruled out New York City because we think it would be too expensive with all of the things we'd like to do there.
