Go by the water, there is an aquarium there and the Mayflower replica, among many other things to see.

These is also the Quincy Market.

Harvard Square

Hell, I would want to check out the new highway construction that will go right through downtown Boston, it's supposed to be awesome.

Definitely have some clam chowder, not as good as in Maine, but better than anything here in the Midwest.

I didn't have the time when I was there, but I wanted to have a beer at Cheers http://www.cheersboston.com/

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
