As the largest city in New England, Boston is best known for its sports, its seafood, and its wealth of history. Boston was founded in 1630 by Puritans settlers from England and was the site of several historical events during the American Revolution. Today, the small waterfront city is home to around 700,000 people and boasts renowned colleges such as Harvard University, Berklee College of Music, the University of Massachusetts, and more.
No trip to Boston is complete without a visit to the oldest Major League Baseball stadium in the U.S. Home of the Boston Red Sox, Fenway Park opened in 1912 and was the location of that year’s World Series. Visitors can take a one-hour tour of the park to experience Pesky’s Pole, view “the triangle,” and sit atop the famous Green Monster.
This historic building served as a meeting hall beginning in 1743 and is one of the most visited tourist sites in the U.S. The building was the site of several speeches by Samuel Adams, James Otis, Dr. Joseph Warren, and other patriots. Today, visitors can tour the building and explore the large Faneuil Hall Marketplace that sits behind the site.
For history in the form of art, head to the fourth largest museum in the U.S. This fine arts museum boasts more than one million visitors every year and contains more than 450,000 paintings, drawings, sculptures, antiquities, jewelry, and more from a variety of cultures. The museum is open seven days a week to art and history lovers of all ages.
During the American Revolution, several historic events took place in Boston including the Boston Tea Party, the Boston Massacre, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and more. Follow the 2.5 mile-long paved red trail that winds through the city to learn more about these events and to view other historical monuments such as Paul Revere’s House and the Old South Meeting House. Best of all, the Freedom Trail is free to walk.
For a dose of relaxation, head to the Public Garden, where you can stroll through endless botanicals, huge weeping willows and elm trees, and a variety of shrubs and bushes. You can even float your way along the pond in a Swan Boat or admire the many statues and structures, including an equestrian statue of George Washington.
Because Boston is such a small city, it’s easy to walk or bike to wherever you’d like to go. The city’s MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority) system also makes it easy to get to places faster or further away. Visitors can hop on one of the many bus routes, commuter rails, subway trains, or even boats to explore the heart of Boston or any and all of its popular neighborhoods.Bus information Subway information Commuter Rail information Boat information System map
Unlike many other major city airports, Boston Logan Airport is located inside the city (more precisely, in East Boston), which means it’s very convenient to get to and from the airport. Visitors from all terminals can easily hop on the Blue Line, which travels into the heart of downtown and leads to a variety of other public transportation options.
