Be careful the Charles River seems to mess up peoples mind.  Not so much on the south side but the north side for sure.

Both Tom Shaw and Bernard Francis Law have had offices on the South side of the Charles.  The Jesuits at Boston College are decidedly on the South side.  I don’t think that Harvard and MIT have anything to offer that you cannot find represented (both positively and negatively) in Boston itself.

I’ll be there in June. Any suggestions of what to see/do? But no Sox games. Hate ‘em.

What to see/do? Depends on what you enjoy. You may want to catch a whale watch. The one from the Aquarium is nice but pricey. I prefer to take a ride out of P-Town, but that’s not a place for the faint of heart or necessarily easy to get to; I think there are several out of the North Shore as well. The Mugar Imax at the Museum of Science may have a good movie or two showing. The MFA and Gardner Museum (with the empty spots on the wall) have incredible art - I always felt the Monets at the MFA appeared 3-dimensional, something I never got out of a book. If music is to your liking there are the the BSO, Pops, and free (or cheap) music at any number of churches and venues. You can also catch the latest and greatest bands at the clubs. Then there is the history…

Ah, a stroll along the Charles, when the crews are out.  The flower boxes of Beacon Hill.  Tea at the MFA.  Chess in Harvard Square. A cannoli in North End.  A picnic out in the Harbor Islands.  I wonder if that little nautical antique store across from South Station is still there.  I had some rough times there, most of the memories are bittersweet, but Boston still charms my heart just a bit.
