THE NEWCOMER

As a newcomer to Boston, I have one recommendation: pack a pair of comfortable walking shoes.

My favourite part of the city is the Esplanade, a 4.5 kilometre path along the Charles River between Boston University Bridge and the Museum of Science (also a great place to visit). Although the Esplanade is well known for 4 July fireworks, there’s lots to do there during the summer, from running to renting sail boats and concerts to my personal favourite: taking my family to the Free Friday Flicks outdoor movie screenings. The shows begin at sundown, but arrive early to grab a good spot.

For shopping, I recommend Newbury Street in Back Bay. The strip stretches between Massachusetts Avenue and Arlington Street. As you move east you’ll notice the progression towards higher-end stores, with great cafés along the way.

新居民

作為波士頓的新居民,我只有一個建議:帶一雙既舒適適又 合步行的鞋。

我最愛在城裡的Esplanade河濱公園散步。公園沿著查爾斯河綿延4.5公里,波從 士頓大學橋延伸至科物學博 館(也是一個好去處)。這個公園除了以74月的日 煙花匯演聞名外,夏天更可在這裡進行多姿多采的,活動例如日步、租艇遊河、參加音樂會等等,令你樂在其中。而我則喜歡在星期五與家人看Free Friday Flicks露天影院放映的免費電。影電影要天黑後才開放始 映,但早點到可找個好位置。

購物的話我, 建議去Back Bay區的Newbury Street街,條這 街介於Massachusetts Avenue大及道 Arlington Street街之間。在街上由西向東慢慢逛,你會發現店舖的檔次愈來愈高級,沿路還有很多不錯的咖啡店。

THE EXPLORER

This city holds a special place in American history: learn more by following the four-kilometre-long Freedom Trail that visits important sites connected to the American Revolution. Or walk through the beautiful Public Garden – the first of its kind in the US – and around Beacon Hill and Newbury Street.

The best way to experience Boston’s passion for sports is to attend a Red Sox game at Fenway Park, America’s oldest baseball park (and to join in when the crowd starts singing Sweet Caroline).

Boston is in the heart of New England, which has big mountain views, whitepine forests and old mill towns – and Mount Washington, the highest peak in the northeast. Visits to Cape Cod and the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are family favourites: find beaches with rolling dunes, great seafood and homemade ice cream. 探

索者

這座城市美在 國歷史上有舉足輕重的,地位沿著全長約四公里的自由之路而行,可參觀多個與美國獨立革命有關的重要景點。美國史上第一座公眾植物園Public Garden也是好去處此; 外, Beacon Hill區與Newbury Street街一帶也不容錯過。

要體驗波士頓對體育的狂熱,就要在美國最古老的棒球場Fenway Park觀一賞場紅襪隊賽事。當球迷一起合唱《Sweet Caroline》時,你當然也要加入一起引吭高歌。

波頓士 位處新英格蘭中心,有崇山峻嶺、白森及老磨小松林古 的 坊鎮,美國東北部最高峰的Mount Washington亦在這裡。Cape Cod岬角、Mar tha’s Vineyard和Nantucket這兩個小島有沙丘起伏有致的漂亮沙灘、美味海鮮與自家製雪糕,最宜家庭樂。

THE FOODIE

Boston has a lot of charm but what I love most when I visit is the food.

You have to have a lobster roll from Legal Sea Foods – or splash out on its baked lobster stuffed with seafood. Make sure to try a bowl of its creamy clam chowder, too. The Liberty Wharf branch has great views over the bay.

For fresh oysters, my favourite place is the popular Neptune Oyster, in the North End, the Italian district of Boston. Just be ready to queue.

There are plenty of other places in the North End, where the aromas of roasting coffee, baked bread and garlic linger in the air. It’s pretty hard to get a bad meal there, but I keep going back to Vinoteca di Monica, a trattoria and wine bar.

And leave some room for dessert at Mike’s Pastry, on Hanover Street; for a creamy cannoli, biscotti or macaroons.

美食家

波士頓的迷人之處數之不盡,但最吸引我的始終是美。食

不在妨 Legal Sea Foods餐廳品嚐龍蝦 ,或是大啖釀滿海鮮的焗龍蝦。千萬別錯過他們香濃的打周 蜆湯。位於Liberty Wharf碼頭的分店還有波頓美士 灣 景為伴。

想吃新鮮生蠔的,話於位 North End區的Neptune Oyster餐我廳是 的。首選 請做好要排隊的心理準備。波士頓的小意大利區North End區有很多好去處,空氣中瀰漫著烘焙咖啡豆、烘麵 及大蒜的。的香氣 這裡 餐廳極少令饕客們失望,而令我再三光顧的則是餐廳兼葡萄酒吧Vinoteca di Monica。

至於飯後甜品,可到Hanover Street街的Mike’s Pastry餅店一嚐cannoli忌廉卷、意式脆餅或馬卡龍,相亦 當不俗。
