It may be the home of Heartbreak Hill, the legendary slope that challenges runners during the final stretch of the Boston Marathon, but don't let that discourage you. Boston's rich and famous shack up in this suburb just west of Beantown, and you might spot some young hunks like "The Office's" John Krasinski, who frequents his hometown for a weekend visit to his parents' house. Keep your night casual with pizza and beer as you cheer on the Red Sox or the Celtics at a local bar -- or head to Boston and tour the historic city on the Old Town Trolley. --H.Y.
