I just saw the Celtics win against the Lakers!
Best sports moment of my life because i was there!

I'm looking forward to the next 2 games against the Nuggets and Bulls. But those results can't compare to the Lakers game!

CELTICS!

Enjoy. Enjoy it a lot. GO TO THE AQUARIUM!!!!

And don't get suckered into paying for an IMAX movie. Not worth it. Drink lots of chowder, eat lots of seafood. Always ask if it is or was frozen. If you can get legitimately fresh fish, eat the crap out it.

Hi there fellow Celtics fans,

On February 6 me and my brother will fly from the Netherlands (Europe) to Boston to see the Celtics play against the Lakers, Bulls and Nuggets.

A dream of me is to see the Celtics win against the Lakers.

I was wondering if you guys have some advice for thinks to do in Boston? Freedom Trail, New England Aquarium, Fenway Park Tour, Sports Museum (TD Garden) are already planned.

Also do you guys have some advice for good affordable places to eat?

I'm also looking for a sports store with Air Jordans and a lot of Boston sport teams clothing. Also what's a great shopping mall?

I'll be very grateful if any one could give me some advice/tips!

Hope you have a great time. I just got back yesterday from an 18 day trip to Detroit, Cleveland, Atlanta and Boston. Saw all 8 Celtics games played in that time - 4 straight losses followed by 4 straight wins!

I would definitely recommend buying a ticket for the Old Town Trolley Tour, $37 for 7 days of riding it as many times as you like between 9am-4pm. It goes to all those places you mentioned. I even used it to get to and from the Clippers game last Sunday afternoon.

I went to the Aquarium and it is probably a little pricey but still good fun. Not as good as the Georgia Aquarium but wasn't expecting it to be! Unfortunately I didn't get to see the New England Sports Museum as it was closed for an ice hockey tournament the day I went. Still had a great time at everything else though.

Also if you have time, going to the Skywalk at the Prudential Center gives you a fantastic view of the city, you can get a $2 discount with a coupon from the Trolley Tour as well.

Thanks for the advice! TP!

A snowstorm of historic proportions is coming to Boston. I'll be part of history :o

First i witnessed the Celtics win in a 21 point blowout against the Lakers. Then i spent 2 days in my hotel because of the snowstorm. And now i witnessed the Celtics win in triple overtime against the Nuggets. This is the best vacation of my life!

I'm putting my game tickets in a frame on the wall back home in the Netherlands!

Wauw it's actually hard to say which was a better win. Beating the Lakers was fantastic, third quarter must have been fantastic to witniss in real life. But then, yesterday that was SOME GAME! I survived 7 heartattacks just watching with the League Pass.

Seems like Dutch guys are getting triple overtime games ;) the only time I went to a NBA game was in London and saw the Nets / Raptors go into a triple overtime game thriller. In a couple of years I'll visit Boston as well!!

Lekkere wedstrijdjes hoor!!! ;)

I can tell you, you caught a real piece of New England there. Makes for a very authentic experience :)
