Renowned for its Red Sox baseball team, its legendary clam chowder, the historic Freedom Trail and world-leading educational institution, Harvard, Boston has a wealth of fascinating sights and experiences waiting to be discovered by the 12 million visitors it welcomes every year.
Boston is a major US city on the north-east coast in the stunning state of Massachusetts. Home to the location of the hit TV show 'Cheers', other highlights include the historic Faneuil Hall and Boston Harbour Islands National Park.
Get a breath-taking overview of the city from the towering Prudential Skywalk or enjoy the city's skyscrapers from an entirely different perspective on a Charles River cruise by day or at sunset.
Boston has museums to satisfy historians, art lovers and culture vultures, such as Boston Fire Museum, Science Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Children's Museum and the incredible JFK Museum. It is also home to the USA's first public library.
As a city break destination it is ideal. Additional attractions include Kenmore Square, the Aquarium, Fenway, its many connections to the War of Independence, its eclectic downtown shopping district and abundance of Irish bars and amazing seafood restaurants. Visitors may also be interested by the Big Dig, which is the world's longest road building project.
With each passing season Boston adapts and showcases a different feature of the city. Famed for its spectacular fall foliage, autumn in Boston is the best time to experience its walking tours, particularly the historic Freedom Trail, which usually features a glorious autumnal backdrop. In winter, join in the holiday festivities and shop till you drop in the fabulous stores and markets. The Rose Kennedy Greenway is abundant in new buds and blooms in the spring and summer sees the pedestrian areas of Faneuil Hall Marketplace teeming with activity and life. A seasonal highlight is the 4th of July celebrations on the Charles River Esplanade, but if you plan to be there for this you will need to book your Boston Hotel with plenty of time to spare in order to secure accommodation.
North of the city is Cape Cod, the delightful New England colonial towns and stunning beaches.
There are few cities willing to entertain and accommodate visitors in the style that Boston can, which guarantees an exciting and memorable trip for all.
