There are in fact several marinas on Boston’s “downtown” waterfront but we have stayed only at the Consitution Marina. If you want to stay here, you should definitely make a reservation.

Just “up the steps” from the marina is the Sorelle Bakery & Cafe on Chelsea Street, a pleasant place that serves good coffee, croissants and bagel-sandwiches.

Ten minutes walk up Charlestown Main Street brings you to the Warren Tavern, built in the 1700’s. This is a pleasing, appropriately old fashioned place that served us an excellent plate of large, juicy chicken wings (and a nice bottle of wine). A couple of blocks further brings you to a small convenience store.

It is very easy to walk across the bridge to the North End and from there into Boston. On a previous visit, we walked to Cambridge. If you want to do this, it is wise to study the map in advance and/or take a detailed map with you. With a bit of planning, you can do most of this walk in parkland. Without planning, you may find yourself on endless bridges over highways and railway lines.
