Resturants that deliver to the Boston Logan Hilton

We are staying two nights at the Boston Logan Hilton Hotel (the one attached to the airport), one on each end of a long trip. Can you recommend any places that will deliver dinner to us at the hotel (lobby or out front is fine)? Kid-friendly a must, something like decent pizza would be fine. [more inside]

Please help find a hotel with great bathtub in Boston area

I would like to find a hotel in the greater Boston area that has a wonderful bathtub. It would be great if the other aspects of the hotel are on par with the tub, but the tub experience is the focus. Adequate depth and decent width/length are the main factors - bubbles and other features are nice, but not critical. I'm having trouble coming up with a search query that returns relevant results, and I'm ready to throw in the towel. [more inside]

birthday dinner in Seaport?

hello! My birthday is this Friday and my family wants to celebrate together tomorrow evening. We’re planning on going to Seaport because my parents love the waterfront. We are ovo-lacto-vegetarian, and I’ve been struggling to find birthday-worthy restaurants (ie not sweetgreen) that have more than one app and entree option. [more inside]

Boston today

I'm staying in Waltham through Monday helping out with a family situation, and I'm trying to do one or two things a day that are renewing and soothing for me. Stuff I like: Being outdoors/nature, art galleries* and art performances, vegetarian food, neighborhood 'ethnic' restaurants, cafes I can sit and draw for a while and eat some kind of hippy food, special magical places. I have a car and I've been to Boston a number of times so have a basic understanding of the city and the central tourist spots - but that would not be my focus this time. [more inside]

What is the best indoor pool (at a hotel) for a kid in the Boston area?

What is the best indoor pool at a hotel near Boston for a 5 year-old? The hotel doesn't need to be fancy. A Hampton Inn would feel luxurious. There are only two features we care about: Great pool for a kid to chill and easy commute into Boston for touristy activities. [more inside]

Boston Suggestions

I will be traveling to Boston soon, and am looking for some more out of the way things to see. In previous trips, I've mostly been to Camberville things, so I'm looking for things in Boston or other areas to look at. No day trips though, I'll only have a day or two to explore wherever and then will be in Cambridge area for the rest of the time. [more inside]

Most convenient Park and Ride options to Boston on I-90

Hi everybody. I have to pick up a laptop on St. James Avenue in Boston for a temp assignment on Monday the 25th, and ideally I'm supposed to be there in the AM, though I've advised them that I'm not entirely sure when I'll get there. I live in Essex County, NY, which isn't exactly next door, and I hate driving in large cities as it makes me very tense and uncomfortable. [more inside]

What's happening Boston?!

Hi Boston, what should I do with you? My family is a teen and two middle aged queer women. Some or all of us like nerdy stuff, art museums, live music, science, nature, weird underground art, bookstores, history, activism, and eating really tasty food. We'll be in Boston (and Western Mass - mostly around Amherst/North Hampton) in mid-May. We don't have a big agenda, just want to relax and explore. I'm mostly looking for Boston suggestions but feel free to chime in with your favorite Western Mass suggestions too. Thank you!

Running loons on the Cape

So, on a whim, I signed up for the Cape Cod Ragnar relay. I have experience of road races and of the East Coast, but not of Ragnars and not of Massachusetts. Help me minimize my rookie far, the office Race Bible only covers so many questions (and anyway, the founders are flyover-country yokels like me). [more inside]
