About the Book

bbfebook "This e-book is a new approach to travel guides: it’s a very subjective take on the question I get the most on the blog “What can I do in Boston?” Directly linking to my way of guiding people in Boston, it’s fun and serious, colourful and precise, and offers 50 activities to do in Boston all year long, as well as suggestions of how to spend 3 days to see the town." - Mathilde Piton
