Boston is an American history treasure trove, and there is simply no better place to learn about the fascinating stories surrounding the nation's founding and fight for independence. Emblems from the city's illustrious past can be found everywhere. Keep an eye out for the nation's first college (Harvard University), first public school, oldest public library, first subway system, and first public park while touring the city.

First-time visitors should start with the Freedom Trail, a sightseeing route that connects sixteen of the city's most important historical sites, including The Old State House, Faneuil Hall, and the Paul Revere House, as well as Copp's Hill Burial Ground, Bunker Hill Monument, and the USS Constitution. Wind your way through the city's atmospheric cobblestone streets, paying homage to one dramatic landmark after another, and marveling at the downtown area's striking blend of old and new architecture. You'll pass through the North End district, a little slice of Italy with authentic cafes that are the perfect excuse to refuel with coffee and pastries.

Suggested holidays:

  • There are plenty of direct flights to enjoy a few days in this charming city where you have a lovely choice of hotels. Alternatively combine a stay in Boston with New York or hire a car and get out into the beautiful New England countryside on one of self-drive itineraries. Or you’ll find Boston featured on several of escorted tours including this gorgeous one Boston, Cape Cod & the Islands.
