Thanks so much Jerry!   bummer you were there this weekend when im out of town.  I hope the rest of the trip is a blast!
Forgot the pics.  I had 2 slices when Fritzy came over to the table to talk.   After he left I turned back to eat and they was only 1 slice left. My sister and bro in law devoured the 2 pizzas.   They really loved it

First time to Boston so I have no idea where we'll be.  Sightseeing and some food is planned by my wife and sister.  My brother in law and I just pay and say ok dear whatever you want. :)

All I know is we are touring fenway Park and Harvard. Doing the freedom trail and walking tour.  We are staying in Salem and might do I day trip north

So any must try food places, pizza, seafood etc would go on our list

Mike's cannolis is the only place I've been told we're going to

Get up early and walk through Beacon hill before you start the freedom trail.  Awesome neighborhood.  USS Constitution is cool.

Aquarium, Gloucester.  Boston Public Library.

EDIT:  Late to the thread.

I live in Salem, welcome! 

Pizza at Bambolina is usually solid.  If you do head north up near Gloucester, Short and Main is very good.  Not pizza, but Settler here in Salem is really nice (self-described as “New American”).  A&J King bakery has great bread, sandwiches, pastry/treats, and good coffee.  Lastly, Melt is a good local ice cream shop that just opened back up for the season.  Enjoy!
We at Bambolina now in salem.  Hope it's as good as Scott's pizza. Nice wfo

Bambolina was very good. I talked to the cook. He said they ferment the dough for 3 days and use 255 gram dough balls. Sauce was chunky and sweet.  This pizza was similar to what I make

It was a different pizza than Scott's at "Stoked Pizza"   both were very good. The group concensus was we preferred Scott's pizza.  Just a better tastier sauce

Jerry,

I grew up in Salem and lived in a famous home that was originally built around 1770. When my parents bought the home, for $15,000, it had previously been remodeled to be a rooming house. They later sold it for $45,000. The new owner’s plan was to restore the home to its prior condition. The home has been written about many times over the years. This article provides some of the details along with some photos:

https://www.preservingsalem.com/grimshawe-house

The article in incorrect about the home being used for a barber shop. My father was a barber and he set up a “barber shop” in the basement where he gave me and my brothers haircuts. A later article said that the barbering equipment was still in the basement.

Nathaniel Hawthorne married one of three sisters, Sophia Peabody, who lived in the home. There have been several books written about Nathaniel Hawthorne and the three Peabody sisters.

There is also a famous burial ground next to the home where famous people at the time who died were buried. My brothers and I would hit fly balls to each other in the cemetary and hop over tombstones :-D. No respect!

While in grammar school, I would daily pass the Nathaniel Hawthorne statue on the way to school. And I often passed by the Customs house where he worked at one time.

Living in that home, and being exposed to roomers of all stripes for many years, I came to understand the human condition early on. It was a great and valuable experience. We could have written a book or started a TV series on the things that went on in that home. :-D

As can be seen by this Zillow piece, the home has a modern price value:

https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/53-Charter-St-Salem-MA-01970/56124234_zpid/

There were a few pizza places at the time in Salem, owned and run mostly by Greeks. That is where we went.

Interesting info Pete.  The history in Salem and Boston is Incredible.  We've really enjoyed this trip.  We have walked so many miles and ate some great food.   Tomorrow is our last day and we're heading back I to Boston to see the constitution and finish the freedom trail

If you are looking for something other than pizza, a couple places we always enjoy

Toro for Spanish tapas
The Fox & the Knife for Italian

Both are fairly small places with great food and a relaxed environment.

We keep getting drawn to the north side for food.   Union oyster house, AL dente, and now carmelinas. After lunch we will hit up Paul revere stuff and the uss constitution

So much good food

My niece was a professor in Waltham.  It was nice having a free place to stay when visiting Boston. It's a great walkable city.

Well the trip is done. Finished the freedom trail and had our best meal of the trip.  We head to the airport at 6am tomorrow  I think  it will take a week to recuperate

It was an exhausting trip but a very good trip

Thanks Scott for the kind hospitality and everyone for food suggestions

That was nice to say, thank you!  Bambolina is awesome, so that is very flattering.  They bake their pizza a lot faster than I do.  I definitely think their pizzas look better than mine. Im really glad you enjoyed Boston.

In Boston now and just made a res for the Union Oyster House. We were at the MFA today and will go there again before the week is out. MFA is on the Green Line E. Scott you are on the C branch; maybe I'll find my way there. Or maybe the Harvard location if we visit the Fogg. This is our third trip to Boston in five years in which time we've seen more of it than when we lived five years just over the state line in NH.

Made it to Cambridge and visited Scott's between visits to Harvard museums. Scott is in person the nice and helpful guy he seems to be online. Great pizza.

And Scott thanks, you shouldn't have.
