I'm finishing up at my conference at noon on Wednesday (staying at the Seaport) and want to pick one great neighborhood to visit (maybe do some Christmas shopping at unique shops) and have a good snack in early afternoon and dinner in early evening. I'm relying on my feet/public transportation to get me there, but will plan to take a cab back to my hotel after dark. I'm alone, so want to go somewhere that I will enjoy dining alone and will feel comfortable walking around around dusk.
Is Back Bay where I should go? How about Harvard Square? And where shall I eat when I get there?
I like all foods, but would prefer a place that is casual and comfortable this time around.
Today I walked to Quincy Sq/Faneuil Hall/North End, so I'd like to see a different neighborhood during my free time on Wednesday.
Thanks in advance
