As you might have gleaned, the OnMilwaukee.com editorial staff is in jet-set mode this summer. As part of our Free Recession Buster Getaways blog contest -- with AirTran and OnMilwaukee.com giving away two tickets and a netbook -- we’re checking out some major U.S. cities for two days of fun-filled article research.
Drew Olson went to St. Louis, Julie Lawrence went to Los Angeles, Andy Tarnoff went to Washington D.C., Bobby Tanzilo went to San Diego and on Monday, I’m going to Boston. I have never been there and I’m really looking forward to exploring the city and meeting up with a couple of former Milwaukeeans who are going to show me around the Hub.
Now, I’m compiling my itinerary and trying to load up as many experiences as I can during my short stay. So far, I have the Freedom Trail, a Harpoon or Sam Adams Brewery Tour, the Gardner Museum and Harvard Square on the list. But where else should I go?
There’s no way I will be able to see all -- or even a portion -- of what this amazing city has to offer in my 48-hour time frame, but I’m going to try.
