Things to Do in Boston

Top activities in the city of Boston include catching a baseball game at the legendary Fenway Park, exploring the New England Aquarium, walking the Liberty Trail (a route through the city that shows you 16 sites that were critical in the days of the Revolution) and touring the Museum of Fine Arts. The Boston area is also home to some of the greatest universities in the world and many visitors tour the campuses of Harvard and MIT.

Back Bay is excellent for doing a little shopping and dining out. The North End is home to narrow old streets, hidden alleys and delicious Italian food and pastry food shops. The South End is a hip area that gives visitors easy access to many of the downtown attractions. Downtown is bustling and offers plenty of hotel options.
