Drinking In Boston
Not a great city if you want to go out partying to the early hours, it's possible but this is very much a drinking culture based around bars not clubs. There are plenty of bars to visit. For the most touristy experience you can visit the original inspiration for the TV show Cheers; or visit a working recreation of the bar from said show. If you want a more raucous time head for South Boston for a little local flavour but do watch out as your leaving the safety net of the Touristy downtown area.
Insider Tip:Head out to the Sam Adams Brewery. You take a 10 minute drive or get the Orange Line Metro which won't cost you more than $5.30 return. You can go on a free tour complete with free beer. Yes. FREE BEER
