I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

Museum of Fine Arts and Isabelle Stewart Gardner Museum if you're looking for some art.

Really just walking around the commons, Charles street,backbay Kenmore...

I'm with Redz.  About the only thing I really like to do in Boston is walk the Commons / Public Gardens, Charles St., Back Bay and North End.  Walk from there down to Newbury and Boylston Streets -- stores that real humans can't afford, but interesting.  Hopefully you get nice weather.

The Boston Public Library on Boylston is an interesting take (tourists walk through it all day) -- just down the road from the Commons.   Theater district is nearby too.

North end has lots of great Italian food, though I'm not in town enough in recent years to recommend anything specific.    Near The Garden.

Freedom Trail tour, which links all the historic sites from the Revolutionary War. Don't pay for a tour; the National Park Service runs them for free.

Oh yeah. I forgot about Bunker Hill and Old Ironsides. Right next to each other.

One reason I started doing more of these things in the past is because the TV broadcasts frequently show these things in between the commercials.

Despite the errors of out-of-towners, the Boston Common is singular (not the "commons"), and the Public Garden is singular (not the "gardens"). Avoid the phony plural.
