One of America's oldest cities, the New England conurbation of Boston has played a key part in US history since 1630. Its plethora of museums, grand historic landmarks, variety of cultural events, and great choice of hotels make for an enjoyable visit.

Where do you want to stay?


Famous for its association with the first Puritan colonisers, the Battle of Bunker Hill, the Boston Tea Party, and the Siege of Boston, the city has always been an important hub for shipping. Nowadays, it's a major center for innovation, higher education, and medicine. Its rich history attracts many millions of visitors every year, and its Emerald Necklace string of parks, lakes, and ponds are the lungs of the city. The famed Beacon Hill district, once the haunt of the Boston Brahmin elite, boasts gas lanterns in its streets, and upscale Back Bay lies along the Charles River.

Key attractions

Boston's massive collection of museums and art galleries covers the American centuries and displays artefacts from across the world. If you've time for only one, the Museum of Fine Arts is your best choice for its Impressionist paintings, stunning Japanese art collection, and Greek and Roman artifacts. The Museum of Science and the Children's Museum are great for family visits. Boston Common and Public Garden with its lake and swan boats are a summer and fall delight, and the Freedom Trail takes in Boston's Old State House, Paul Revere's House, Boston Harbour, and a dozen more heritage sites.  

Having fun 

Cultural entertainment here ranges from opera, ballet, and classical concerts to the preview shows in the Theater District, which is well-known as a tryout base for a Broadway run. Boston is famous for its Sam Adams and Harper breweries, both of which offer tasting tours, and the Hotel 140 hosts the Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Show, giving a fun evening including a four-course gourmet meal. Sports are huge here, with the Red Sox baseball team, the Celtics basketball team, and the New England Patriots American football team all based in the city. Atlantic seafood and ice-cream are Bostonians' favorite culinary delights, and the city's Chinatown and the Italian enclave in North End district are crammed with excellent ethnic eateries.

Shopping

Back Bay and Downtown Crossing are ideals destinations for shopaholics, with malls including the Cambridgeshire Galleria and Copley Place holding everything from department stores to individual boutiques. Newbury Street in Back Bay is nicknamed Rodeo Drive by the locals for its upscale stores and restaurants set in historic brownstones. Charles Street, set off Boston Common, is quaint and informal, and great for window-shopping as well as maxing out your credit card.

Nearby

Boston is the perfect base for touring picturesque New England and its charming port towns. Hyannis Port on Cape Cod is just 1 hour, 30 minutes away with its glorious summer beaches and links with the Kennedy family. Providence and Rhode Island's unique culture and choice of Italian cuisine make them well worth the trip, and Martha's Vineyard is quaint, peaceful, and set on its own island. In the opposite direction from Cape Cod are the North Hampshire Seacoast and southern Maine, again about 1 hour, 30 minutes by car from Boston.
