Boston is the largest city in New England and to travel to Boston is to immerse yourself in the unique history of America’s oldest city, a key center during the American Revolution. In fact, Boston tourism centers around the city’s famed Freedom Trail where you’ll find national treasures like the Boston Common, USS Constitution, the home of Paul Revere, and the Old North Church.
But Boston isn't just about history; it’s a thriving modern metropolis and regional hub of art and culture. During your Boston holiday, explore the Theater District and the gorgeous Boston Opera House or spend the day marveling at the collections of world-class museums like the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston or the Boston Museum of Science.
You can’t visit Boston, though, without paying homage to one of the city’s biggest pastimes: sports. If your trip to Boston is in April, you can see the Boston Marathon, but you can also catch a Red Sox game at the legendary Fenway Park or root for the Celtics and Bruins at the TD Bank Gardens. If your idea of tourism in Boston is more about shopping, make sure to pay a visit to The Shops at Prudential Center.
If you’re starting your Boston vacation at Logan Airport, your best bet for moving around is to catch one the Silver Line buses to South Station and take the subway (the first in the nation) to downtown.
