Whether you are delving into the foundations of the USA or want to visit a modern and effervescent city, Boston is a great location to visit.
Things to Do in Boston
During the American Revolution, Boston was home to many key events and there are museums scattered around the city that are dedicated to the critical stages of the movement. For a more general sense of the events that happened there is the famous route known as the Freedom Trail. The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile brick road that leads tourists through Boston. Part walking tour, part history lesson, the Freedom Trail explores 16 important buildings and sites, including taverns, churches and museums.

However, Boston has much more to offer than historical monuments. The Boston harbour contains a number of islands which can be easily accessed by boat and offer activities such as hiking, kayaking, fishing, camping and exploring. Finally, enjoy a walk through the 600 varieties of trees in the Boston public garden, officially the first of its kind in the USA.
Drive Around Boston
Although many of Boston’s central attractions can be accessed using public transport, many tourists prefer to rent a car to fully and independently explore the astounding natural beauty of the surrounding areas. The Skywalk Observatory is a 10 minute drive from the centre of Boston and the 360° views offer a stunning view of Greater Boston as well as many of the landmarks of the city. For sports fans, the well known Fenway baseball park, home to the Boston Red Sox, is merely 15 minutes by car from the centre. For those who desire a more educational trip, the town of Cambridge offers two of the most successful universities in the USA, as well as a range of shops and cafes to enjoy. Cambridge and the other nearby towns are very easy to visit by car, as are the national parks.
