At a Glance
Boston, founded in 1630, it’s one of the oldest cities in the U.S., and a treasure trove of Americana. Its key role in the American Revolution is highlighted on the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile walking route of historic sites, ending at the ever-popular, 18th-century meeting and market place Faneuil Hall. Stroll neighborhoods such as Little Italy, admire the Victorian row houses and English gardens in the South End; saunter charming cobblestones of Beacon Hill; or lose yourself in the vibrant arts district of SoWa (South of Washington). Taste famous lobster rolls and clam chowder at Fisherman’s Wharf. See a game at Fenway Park. Run the Boston Marathon. Bicycle along the Charles River Esplanade. Explore Boston Common including the Massachusetts State House. Join the New England Aquarium Whale Watch. Visit one of 50 universities such as Harvard and MIT. So much to see and do!
There are chic boutiques and luxury malls, exciting performing arts, and galleries galore… and of course, the bar from Cheers!
