[QUOTE]Thanks for the ticket info, Duinne. Not sure yet where we'll stay. We usually prefer B & Bs over big hotels. I know the city has a rich military history. I've heard very nice things about Boston. I think we'll enjoy it a great deal. And it'll be nice to have other people around me cheering when the Bruins score for a change. Usually when I see them it's in Toronto and I'm surrounded by Leafs fans. Do you know of any good restaurants or must-see sights for tourists? Cheers.

We usually go the B&B route as well. I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding a good spot in Boston.
There are a ton of must-see sights, of course, though a lot depends on what interests you. Boston is certainly chockful of history, and being a history buff myself, I'd recommend walking the Freedom Trail (Paul Revere's house, Old North Church, the USS Constitution, etc.). But be warned - it's long and can be tiring, and the weather certainly could be a factor that time of year.
There are, of course, plenty of museums - art, science, etc. - if that's more your thing.
I'd recommend a Duck Tour but alas I think the boats are shut down in the winter. :-(
If you really want to do the geeky touristy thing, visit the Prudential Center and check out the view from the observation deck (hope for a clear day!).
The North End (conveniently, the Garden location) is restaurant heaven, with a heavy emphasis on Italian. Some other folks can probably help you more in that department - we usually just go the pizza route when we're in the city. ;-)
