Boston, the capital of Massachusetts and the largest city in New England, is one of the oldest cities in the United States and is known for its history, culture and charm. The storied metropolitan city features acclaimed museums, numerous historic sites, world-class dining and shopping plus over 100 colleges and universities. Public transportation is convenient and available throughout Boston via the “T” and buses. The beloved Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox and the oldest stadium in Major League Baseball, is located in the city’s Fenway-Kenmore district. In total, Boston is divided into 23 neighborhoods, each with distinct characteristics and personality.
The Back Bay neighborhood is famous for its rows upon rows of Victorian brownstones, as well as cultural institutions, shopping destinations and high-rise office buildings. Shop or hit up a café on Newbury Street, read a book in Copley Square or visit the Boston Public Library.
Downtown Boston is a vibrant business and financial hub with department stores, boutiques, restaurants and gorgeous views of scenic Boston Harbor. Explore the charming Boston Common, America’s oldest park, and the Boston Public Garden, America’s first public garden. Take a peaceful ride on a Swan Boat, a Boston tradition, in the public lagoon. Visit Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market for entertainment, shopping and famous restaurants such as Cheers. The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway provides 27 acres of open space in the center of the district. Take a walk on the Freedom Trail with colonials in character and see historic sites and landmarks from the American Revolution, including the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill and more.
The Seaport District, located on the South Boston waterfront facing Boston Harbor, is the city’s hottest new neighborhood. After a massive redevelopment, the district is crawling with places to live, work and play, with many mixed-use buildings dedicated to all three. An incredible community of artists, innovators and entrepreneurs inhabit this emerging neighborhood, with many technology startups calling it home. The Seaport’s dining scene is also burgeoning, with world-class restaurants popping up in the area seemingly every week. Have a stroll along the Harborwalk, take in the Boston skyline at Fan Pier Park, visit the Institute of Contemporary Art, enjoy a waterside seafood meal, drink craft beers at a local brewery or shop on Seaport Boulevard.
