Boston, USA


Boston is one of those cities that encompasses everything across the board with nary a lack of things to do in the bustling city. Often referred to as the "cradle of liberty" Boston Massachusetts is characterized by a combination of skyscrapers, beautifully manicured parks, early-American churches, laid-back college campuses, a variety of residential neighborhoods and lots of inner-city activity. Recently landscaped and re-groomed, Boston Massachusetts is putting its best face forward keeping in tune with the city's vibrant past while moving forward with modern growth for the best of both worlds. The best time to visit the city is in spring or early fall when the days are warm but not too hot and the nights are cool yet not too cold. Summer can be blistering in Boston and winter is cold and snowy...

Boston attractions and events can seem never-ending and the city offers up a buffet of things to do and see. One of the most popular Boston attractions leading a tour into history is the Boston Freedom Trail. This 2.5 mile trail is a really great way to see the city and the sights within it. Boston attractions also includes Newbury Street which is Boston's version of Rodeo Drive and offers a wealth of shopping that spans eight city blocks! Great shopping can also be found at Harvard Square, Downtown Crossing and Copley Place. Back Bay is a beautiful area worth taking a walk through as well the Financial District, Chinatown and the harbor front which is great for harbor cruises or a base from which to go whale watching.

Dining is dotted along the way incase shoppers need a bite in between marathon shopping. Faneuil Hall Marketplace has existed for over 250 years and as for Boston attractions it's top-rated. Everything from shopping and dining to entertainment and events can be found in this "Gateway to the City'. Boston has some very distinct and charming neighborhoods and a walking tour through them is a favored activity. North End is Boston's oldest neighborhood and is a "little Italy" full of historic sights and only a 10 minute walk from the marketplace. Boston subway system is a convenient and affordable mode of transportation and a quick way to get around. Driving can be inconvenient as many streets are narrow and lots fill up fast. Taxis are every where as well.
