We bought on line our parking fee, added two hours on line while we were finishing our lunch and got and parking ticket. Reason is that you can not stay at the same spot while their web site allow it. Total scam.

I really enjoyed visiting the City Hall in Boston. Parking is really hard, but is worth to expend the sunset around the hall.

We stumbled upon the City Hall plaza here with the cool BOSTON sign and took photos, hung out, watched people, laughed, sat on the walls/benches, and just enjoyed ourselves.

It's sometimes called a monstrosity and an eye-sore, but I think it's a great focal point for downtown. The city recently added colored lights to illumine City Hall to celebrate different events. I wish it was a bit more approachable but the city is doing...More

children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
