Boston -- help??

My friend and I will be leaving for Boston early Friday morning. I'm taking her up for her 18th birthday to see Dropkick Murphys on St. Patrick's Day. We're both pretty excited seeing as how it's our first trip that isn't just a one-day thing. Anyways, we've already made hotel reservations at the Boston Park Plaza and Towers. Now I'm looking for [CHEAP] things to keep us occupied as we'll be up there all weekend. I know that we'll unfortunately be missing the St. Patty's Day Parade, but... what are some good, cheap places to check out? Anything, really; shopping, restaurants, places that are pretty at night, historic sites, etc? We're on a relatively tight budget after buying tickets, needing gas money, making hotel reservations, and so on.
By the way, how easy is it to get around by public transit up there? Would public transit be easier than driving if you don't know the area too well? Thanks for any help :)
