We're generally not big on over hyped tourist attractions, but sometimes you just have to say "Cheers" to some of these popular spots. Case in point: Cheers Boston, the inspiration for the hit TV series "Cheers" and where exterior shots were filmed for the show.
From the crowds to the souvenirs, Cheers Boston indeed has tourist attraction written all over it. On the other hand, it's a very well run bar/restaurant with friendly service (including the bartenders) and a casual, comfortable atmosphere. For a burger and brew -- or other bar food basics and drinks -- Cheers is a perfectly acceptable restaurant to dine. I think if it wasn't a tourist attraction, some of media hipsters and various elitists would like this restaurant. I like to look beyond the obvious. In this case, I really see Cheers not only as a tourist destination but also a very solid restaurant. Plus, what would a visit to Boston be without doing the time-honored and tested "tourist" thing?
