got maps?Reviewed in the United States on 30 January 2022
i am used to Frommers or Rick Steves guide books. This book " Only in Boston" has no walking tour maps. So for example, as you are walking around in Chinatown, you have find the three words in pages fill with words where you should be walking next. Not really practical. " Only in Boston" is more a book to have on a shelf than a guide book. However, a lot of good, interesting info in it. I wish it had been presented in a Frommer's/Rick Steves walking tour guidebook style.
A voracious reader
Very informative and interestingReviewed in the United States on 24 May 2020
I went to college in Boston (eons ago) and returned a few times over the years, but this book makes me want to return for an in-depth visit. I really like the author's writing style and the photos are nice, plus the various places are not "touristic" and I never would have heard about them without this book.
