Hello everyone. I am going to Boston for a day and I've been trying to find out where the best spot to view is. I have come up empty handed and turn to you all for help. If anyone can supply any info I would appreciate it greatly

it all comes down what you want to do. Watching or photographing airplanes?
Watching airplanes can be done pretty much from everywhere in and around the airport. Photographing a whole different story. Do you have access to a car? You might want to try Castle Island (South Boston) good for Rwy 4R and RWY4L landings. Around East Boston Orient Heights is a beach forgot it's name though, another good spot to watch planes take off Rwy 4R and L.
Winthrop might be an alternative if they come in to land on RWY27.
If I were still living in BOS, I would take you around.

Vasco gives good advice in reply #3, as a matter of fact he is 100 percent correct. I really can't say too much, but pointing a camera at an airplane anywhere around BOS in not a good idea anymore, for many obvious reasons.
Good luck Kevin
