Every town has their attractions and landmarks, but few have so many packed in as small of an area as Boston. The city is known for its attitude and accent, but there’s far more to this city than meets the eye, so let’s dive in and learn more about what Boston has to offer:
Freedom Trail- If you’re looking for a place to explore history and understand more about the birth of America, then the Freedom trail is for you. The trail is made up of sixteen different sights that meander their way through Downtown Boston and across the Charles River over to Charlestown, and overall the trail is two and a half miles long. If you have plenty of energy at the end of the trail, be sure to climb the 294 steps to the top of the Bunker Hill Monument to enjoy a scenic view of the Boston skyline.
Fenway Park- The home of the Boston Red Sox since 1912 and the oldest stadium in Major League Baseball, Fenway Park has plenty of baseball history and charm to offer. Be sure to take in a game and a tour so you can see the stadium in action and soak in its rich history.
Boston Public Garden- Started in 1837 and located in the former mudflats of Boston’s Back Bay, the Boston Public Garden provides beautiful scenery and a peaceful atmosphere in the heart of downtown Boston. The Public Garden also has a pond that is often frequented by both ducks and swans, and when they’re not around you can jump on a swan boat ride for a small fee. Once you’re ready to sit down for a pint after strolling through the garden, head across the street to Cheers, the bar that was the inspiration behind the 1980s TV show that shares its name.
The North End- Nestled in the northeast corner of downtown Boston, The North End is rich with Italian culture and restaurants. From the pasta and sauce at Antico Forno, to the pizza at Regina Pizzeria and the cannolis at Mike’s Pastry, The North End has all of the Italian favorites you’ve grown to love.
