Head to Boston, the capital of Massachusetts and gateway to New England, and enjoy one of America’s oldest cities full of history and scattered with heritage sites for you to explore.
A great destination to visit all year round with the spectacular changing seasons you’ll find here with pretty blossoms in Spring, amphibious vehicle tours in Summer to explore the city on land and water. Autumn brings an incredible colour palette to the tree lined streets and parklands making it a spectacular time of year to visit. Winter usually brings snow and the city is decorated in festive lights making Christmas a magical time to see the sights.
The Freedom Trail is a must do while you’re here. This 2.5 mile route connects 16 historical sites to explore including the first public school in America, King’s Chapel and the Bunker Hill Monument with each having major influence over future generations.
Boston locals are serious about their teams, so any sports fans will enjoy the vibe here. Catch a baseball game at the famous Fenway Park Stadium, home to the Boston Red Sox or watch some slam dunks courtside at a Celtics game. There is also the country’s oldest and popular Boston Marathon that takes place in April and if you’re planning to visit during late October you can watch the Head of the Charles Regatta boat race.
Foodies will enjoy the plentiful seafood in Boston so make sure you sample the famous steamed lobster. Admire the views of the harbour as you delight in the flavours that await you.
