My Favourite Things to see and do in Boston:
Boston is one of my favourite cities in the world! It is so friendly, easy to walk around and really pretty. These are my top things to see and top tips to help you make the most of your visit.
You can’t go to Boston without walking the ‘Freedom Trail’. Boston is where the Declaration of Independence was signed and the city is full of history for this reason. The Freedom Trail takes you around the most important sites in the city including the balcony of the Old State House where the declaration of independence was read out.
Fanueil Hall and Quincy Market are full of quirky stalls and both have a bustling atmosphere, well worth spending an afternoon wandering around the stalls before stopping in one of the many cafes and coffee shops.
Boston is probably best known as the location of ‘Cheers’ and you can visit both the bar that was used as the film set and the bar that was the inspiration for the show. There is plenty of merchandise to buy in both places and you can’t leave without paying a bit more to keep your own ‘Cheers’ pint or cocktail glass!!! (As we did!!)
The famous Harvard university is just across the river from Boston in Cambridge. Easily accessible via the ‘T’ subway service you can take tours of the university site and spend time wandering round the many book shops and craft shops in this student area. It’s a very different feel to Boston and is very quirky and because of this is well worth a visit.
One thing I loved the most about Boston is the amount of green space in the city. Boston Common and Public Gardens are in the middle of the city and tourists and locals alike can be found picnicking in the summer sunshine or enjoying a spot of people watching! The swan boats on the lake are very popular aswell!
The Back Bay area of Boston is beautiful in that it is full of old Victorian houses and buildings and is now an exclusive shopping area filled with designer shops and boutiques. Walking down Newbury Street and Boylston Street doing a spot of window shopping (or purchasing if you have the funds!) is a very enjoyable way to spend some time in Boston. There are some fantastic restaurants and hotels in that area aswell. We stayed at the Hotel Lenox which is a 4* Hotel that I can highly recommend for its service and comfort aswell as its location.
Boston is known as the Walking City as its so compact but if you’ve had a long day its worth using the ‘T’. The subway system in Boston is excellent and very cheap. We purchased a 7 day pass for the 4 days we were there as it was cheaper than paying each time we used the service. You can even get the ‘T’ from the airport which is only 4 miles from downtown Boston if you want to save the taxi fares.
Boston can also be used as a starting point to a fly drive of New England, please give me a call if you want any more info on Boston or New England fly drives!
