This past Sunday you may have seen my story on a Boston staycation. A couple of readers wrote with some interesting tips that I had missed and so I'm posting them you to enjoy. (Or add your own suggestions!)
A tour guide from Fenway Park wrote to say that even though the Sox won't be back till spring, you can still visit the park:
"...we do conduct tours all year...even tomorrow on Martin Luther King Day with fresh snow on our Kentucky Blue Grass field. With construction and renovations currently going on, we have modified our normal walk-around the Park in-season tour with a video/slide presentation in one of our luxury suites. The modified tour is entitled 'Building Fenway Park.' It is still a very popular tourist destination. In fact, last week, I had tour visitors from Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Colombia, Mexico, and yes even Portland, Maine."
Another reader wrote:
"We are a group of Boston lovers who are trying to be sure that Boston's women are mentioned in its travel articles (and its school curriculum etc). I urge you to refer to our web site or our guidebook, Boston Women's Heritage Trail. ...For instance, your sentence about Faneuil Hall could read, 'where John Hancock, Frederick Douglass and Lucy Stone spoke about issues of their day.' (Lucy's bust is up there right near Frederick's.)"
Thanks for sharing!
