Boston is the largest city in New England and one of the most historic, influential and interesting in the United States. Attracting over 12 million visitors a year, Boston is renowned for its range of cultures, its vibrant atmosphere and its diverse, ever changing cityscape where tall skyscrapers and charming Georgian buildings stand proudly alongside each other on the banks of the iconic Charles River.
The city is divided into a number of neighbourhoods and each has their own unique style and culture, so there’s something to suit every taste.[ReadMoreMob] Back Bay, Downtown and the Financial District are alive with activity and are where you’ll find large shopping malls, stylish modern buildings and fine restaurants. In contrast, Charlestown, South End, Roxbury and Beacon Hill offer a more traditional, historic experience and are home to some of Boston’s most famous sites, including the Bunker Hill Monument and Massachusetts State House.
The best of Boston is easy to discover on a walk along the city’s ‘Freedom Trail’ - one of America’s first historic walking tours. Simply follow the red brick and painted lines that connect 16 of Boston’s most important historic sites to explore two and a half centuries of incredible history.
