Boston is a charming city that offers something for everyone
Boston is steeped in history, so if you're something of a culture vulture this is one place that will definitely appeal to you. One of the things the city is best known for is the Boston Tea Party, an event that took place in 1773 and saw American colonists oppose British rule helping to spark the start of the American Revolutionary War. Head to Fort Point Channel and you'll get to see life-size replicas of the ships that were involved in the uprising.
Following the famous Freedom Trail will guide you past 16 of the city's most historic landmarks, including the site of the Boston Massacre and the Park Street Church, with the latter building playing a key role in the anti-slavery movement.
Alternatively, you can visit the Institute of Contemporary Art to see works by the likes of Picasso and Warhol, among others. Head to the Museum of Fine Arts, meanwhile, and you will see Renaissance-era paintings and one of the largest collections of Asian art in the world.
Boston is also home to one of the country's most famous baseball sides – the Red Sox. Heading to the team's Fenway Park stadium to take in a game will be a memorable way to get a slice of American sporting action. The TD Garden arena, meanwhile, is used by the Celtics and Bruins, the city's basketball and ice hockey teams respectively.
Shopaholics will also find plenty to keep them occupied, with the Prudential Center mall featuring dozens of well-known brands. While here, make sure you check out the Skywalk Observatory, the only high-level vantage point in the city that offers 360 degree views of the metropolis. The city's Newbury Street district, meanwhile, is home to designer boutiques and independent stores. You'll also find restaurants that serve a wide range of cuisine, including Spanish, Indian and French.
