Boston is where the American Revolution and modern democracy got their start. And these things didn't take place in just any old building. No, Boston has some beautiful architecture, and just as in many European cities some of the best is crowded into the historic centre. It's also always been a city of great intellectual influence - home to prestigious institutions like Harvard, MIT and Boston University.
With its smart surrounds, great sporting teams, a buzzy atmosphere and plenty of culture to get stuck into, you'll be sure to leave having completely fallen in love with the place.
What not to miss:
- Beacon Hill is an area worth exploring. Home to the majority of the city's greatest dignitaries - many of their homes have been turned into museums - it also has great antique shops.
- You should also make time for Faneuil Hall - 'The Cradle of Liberty'.
- Despite being founded by Puritans, Boston is now one of America's most politically forward thinking cities. A shift influenced by the artists and creatives who have made this city their own. The opening of the Institute of Contemporary Arts means that it's not just Grand Masters that you'll find in the many museums and art galleries. Make time for the Museum of Fine Arts.
- If you've got the little ones in tow, then head for the Children's Museum. This is a haven from "Don't touch!", where everything is at child-height - and if it's not you're welcome to climb up to view it. Or touch it!
- The Science Museum is another family friendly perennial, as is the New England Aquarium.
- If you're visiting in summer you'll want to visit the Public Garden for a go on the famous Swan Boats of Boston. These lake paddlers are educational, as well as fun, having been around since the 1870s.
Intermingling some of America's finest historical monuments with a busy metropolitan city, Boston is a great place to explore. Our selection of the best places to stay in Boston serve to accentuate the city's rich history and culture.
