I'll be staying on for the weekend after Sibos. Thinking of hiring a car and taking off to Cape Cod for a bit of R&R.

From Wikipedia: "East of America, there stands in the open Atlantic the last fragment of an ancient and vanished land. Worn by the breakers and the rains, and disintegrated by the wind, it still stands bold." - Henry Beston, from his book The Outermost House

More prosaically: "(Cape Cod is)... a vast morgue, where famished dogs may range in packs - the most uninviting landscape on earth." - Henry David Thoreau

Should be just the ticket!

Some recommendations:

  • The best restaurants: Great Bay, Azure, Om, Mantra, The Metropolitan Club 
  • The best chill out (also dine): Radius
  • Boston is very walkable - take advantage of that. Walk from downtown to Boston Commons, Copley Square, see architecture in Beacon Hill, Back Bay and Brookline.
  • Take the red line (subway) and visit Harvard (Cambridge).
  • There are troleys that go around and show the city - special for tourists.
  • Shop at Prudential Center (next to the convention center, you won't miss it), cross the bridge to Copley Place - upscale shopping (if you come from Europe, you'll probably get very good deals).

Ah, yes. I've been to the exhibition halls too

Too late - missed it.
