Visit Boston.

While it’s known for its delicious baked beans, there are many other fantastic reasons to put this city at the top of your list of travel destinations. Prepare to find yourself in one of the most walkable and bike-friendly cities in the U.S. with countless enriching cultural attractions to explore.

When you visit Boston, you’d better make time for historical sightseeing. Visit Freedom Trail, a two-and-a-half-mile long path located downtown that passes by 16 locations significant to the country’s history. Visit famous locations such as Boston Common (one of the oldest city parks in the United States) and the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown. Adjacent to Boston Common you’ll find the Boston Public Garden, a large park in the heart of the city. Watch street musicians, enjoy a picnic of takeaway street food, or relax in this tranquil public botanical garden.

Once you’ve spent some time walking or biking through the city’s green spaces, take a trip to Newbury Street, a mile-long stretch lined with 19th-century brownstones and full of several restaurants and shops to explore. Eat and drink your way through local favorites and catch a live music performance in the area, if you have time. Finally, if you enjoy taste testing local goods and supporting small local businesses, take a trip to Boston Public Market. This indoor market boasts farm-fresh goods year round, including coffee, chocolate, cheese, and poultry. While the Boston Public Market has a year-round location, you can find several other farmers’ markets all over the city. Before you depart, spend time in the city’s renowned cultural attractions such as the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, watch live theatre performances, or visit the Boston Center for the Arts, which features works from local artists that aim to be a catalyst for social change.
