When it comes to a buzzing atmosphere, old-world charm, and cultural landmarks, the “City on the Hill” of Boston can’t be beat.
Orient yourself to the city’s most historical landmark with a walk along the Freedom Trail. This brick-lined, 2.5 mile trail winds visitors past 16 integral sights and touchstones of American history. Join a tour, gawk at actors in historic dress, or even run--yes, run--to stops such as Paul Revere House, the Bunker Hill Monument, and the ancient graves of the King’s Chapel Burial Ground. Stop and smell the roses or paddle a swan boat at the Olmsted-designed Boston Public Gardens. Stroll through the immense collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, or get a taste of the Ivy League in adjoining Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Tried-and-true baseball fans won’t want to miss the opening pitch at Fenway Park, the oldest major league stadium in the country. For a selection of bustling restaurants and a peek into the red brick of Boston’s oldest neighborhood, spend an evening wandering the cobblestones of the North End, or take a jaunt along the Charles River. The Beacon Hill neighborhood also proves a captivating destination to discover under the glow of gas street lamps. After a long day of cultural immersion, treat yourself to a brew at the Samuel Adams Brew House, a mecca for beer-lovers.
