Boston and its surrounding areas are full of history. Whether it is the first public park in the United States, the first public school, or the first University, there is plenty to experience. A great way to see the highlights is by walking the red line of the Freedom Trail. If you prefer to ride rather than walk, you can’t beat a Duck Tour or Trolley Tour.
There are plenty of museums to explore in the area. If you enjoy art, the must-sees are the Museum of Fine Arts and the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA). Try the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum for a unique experience which combines virtual exhibits and historic artifacts. Family friendly museums also include the Boston Science Museum, Boston Children’s Museum and the New England Aquarium.
A favorite spot for visitors and locals alike are the homes of Boston’s beloved sports teams. Fenway Park is America’s oldest operating baseball park and home to Boston Red Sox. If basketball or hockey are your sports, stop by the Garden to catch a Celtics or Bruins game.
One of the most popular stops in Boston is the famous Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. Street performers can be found year-round in this outdoor hot spot of shops and restaurants.
