Boston is a city of enormous charm and unrivalled beauty. It is one of the most historic, wealthy and influential cities in the USA. You will find modern skyscraper mixed with eighteenth century townhouses.
Boston is a city that is guaranteed to be a pleasure to visit whatever season you choose to travel in. If you are travelling in the spring you will see the city’s parks and greenways at their best. Visit Rose Kennedy Greenway as the trees bud and the flowers are plentiful. The pedestrian areas in the Summer come to life, visit Faneuil Hall Marketplace which is full of excitement and life. Autumn, or should we call it Fall, is a one of the most picturesque times as the leaves change colour and fall to the ground. Then we have winter. Enjoy Boston as you wander around the cobblestone pathways and the romantically lamplit streets of Beacon Hill. And of course there is Christmas, the Holiday season, where Boston come to life and is filled with celebration and joy. Any shopping experience is made a joyful experience as the celebrations and festivals are abundant.
Boston Common Public Gardens was the first public botanical garden in the USA. Take a walk through, or maybe a Swan Boat Ride. Visit the George Washington and the Make Way for Ducklings statues.
Could you go to Boston without a visit to Fenway Park. Take in a game of Baseball and see the Boston Red Sox play, if you are out of season you can still take a stadium tour. Fenway Park is the oldest baseball stadium still in use.
An enjoyable trip to see the sites of Boston is on a Boston Duck Tour. This is a World War II Amphibious Vehicle which will travel on land and water.
Shopping is a must in Boston. Shop on Newbury Street, Boylston Street and the prudential center. Also worth visiting is the Museum of Fine Arts and the Christian Science Center. Another shopping experience is Faneuil Hall Marketplace or Haymarket, on a Friday and Saturday which have more outdoor vendors and activities. Try your luck and haggle with the vendors.
You must Walk the Freedom Trail and take in the 16 significant historical sites. It is a 2.5 mile walk from Boston Common to the Bunker Hill Monument. Stop off at the oldest bar in Boston, the Bell in Hand Tavern, for refreshments.
Visit Bunker Hill Monument, the first public obelisk erected in the United States and catch a muskat practice.
