Boston for a dayHello
I shall be in Boston on 14 February with my husband and 9yr old son. We only have the one day. Can you recommend what to do during the day.
In addition, any cheap but cheerful restaurants in town?
I realise it will be cold, but really want to see as much of the city as possible - harbour tour?

Self-guided walking tour through the city. Just follow the lines.

3I don't know if they run boat tours of the harbor in February, but if they do it's not what I will do. You won't see Boston (except from a distance); you'll see the water that surrounds it and the islands in that water. And it will be colder than on land. If you five or six days there in a warmer season, it can be worth doing.

7Walk the Freedom Trail. It weaves through several interesting and vibrant neighborhoods.
A harbor cruise is not possible in February. They all shut down for the winter. So does the duck tour.
There are lots of cheap and cheerful restaurants in town. What type of cuisine would you like? The North End has some great reasonably priced Italian restaurants. Pizzeria Regina is a favorite (but only the North End location), but there are other good choices. Chinatown is also fun. Lots of other options as well. Maybe twin lobsters or comfort food at an Irish Pub?
How cheap is cheap?

8Freedom Trail. Maybe the Science Museum or Aquarium for the kid.
On/near the Freedom Trail is Legal Seafood and lots of good North End Italian restaurants. Also the food court at Quincy Market for lots of variety in a small space.
