Spring break's usually when the tourists start marching in, but there's still a bunch of non-touristy things to do.Shopping-Newbury St. For shopping (Chanel, Sonya Rykiel, etc..) Stretches really far, don't try to do it all in one sitting(your feet will kill you)Faneuil Hall Has shops, a really cool food hall, and historical-ish things if you're into it.Prudential Center connects to various places, like Copley Place (shopping center for the posh.) and some blah hotels. Has a nice food court.Museums-Institute of Contemporary Art is a good one, Museum of Science is really fun. Museum of Fine Arts is really nice, and has cool galleries.Flea Markets...This is a stretch. SOWA starts in May, but the Cambridge Antique Market Building has 5 floors, and is within 2 minutes from the Lechmere T station.Cafes- The good ones are out of Boston, IMO, near the college areas. Every other corner in Boston is a Starbucks, Dunkin's, or some weird business cafe that caters to boring businessmen/women. Eating-Seeing as you're a high schooler, eateries around Chinatown, Downtown Crossing will satisfy your hunger. (And budget.)All in all, if you're clueless in general, take a Duck Tour. (Little bus things that tour you around Boston, can go in the water.)Walk in the Common, take the T somewhere and see where you end up, and never refer to Boston as Beantown unless your very life depends on it. =)Enjoy your visit
