Marvel at Massachusetts' capital city, where super-swanky skyscrapers soar confidently over cobbled streets, on city breaks to Boston.
Located on the US east coast, the city of Boston is a cool and cultured destination. It's often used as a gateway to the natural vistas of New England, especially during the autumn, or “fall”, when the trees of this glorious region take the landscape from green and lush to red, gold and orange - an utterly spectacular sight.
But don't go anywhere before you've got to grips with Boston. Walk the Freedom Trail, visit the Cheers bar, shop in Faneuil Hall, tuck into fresh-from-the-sea lobster or crab, or join the locals as they cheer on one of their teams.
With its waterside café scene, sculpture-strewn parks and showy architecture, Boston is a city that mesmerises. The cobbled streets lying neatly behind the shiny yachts of Charlestown harbour give a sense of the city's colonial history. Triple decker townhouses tower over the web of wide avenues in Mission Hill and a collection of trendy art venues define nearby Roxbury. Cool bistros tempt in the Leather District and haute couture beckons in the boutique-lined avenues of Back Bay.
Flights to the city land at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS). It's easy to get into Boston from Logan airport. The MBTA Silver Line fast transit service whisks you from the airport to downtown Boston in around 10 minutes. The MBTA Blue Line subway, the speedy underground system, also connects the airport with central Boston. Most hotels provide a free shuttle bus for guests or you can take a taxi outside the terminal.
It's also easy to get around once you've checked into your Boston hotel. Dedicated cycling lanes make it easy and safe to sightsee by bicycle on short breaks in Boston, while trains, buses and the subway are inexpensive and efficient ways to travel around the city. Trip planner guides are available at all stations.
