About Boston

Boston is 'The Athens of America'. Birthplace of the nation. Home of architectural and cultural treasures, Ivy League universities and the added bonus of beautiful New England surrounds. This is a great town for a city break and the majority of the best places to stay in Boston are ideally located for making the most of its varied highlights.

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.

Where To Stay - Which neighbourhood?

  • West End - the area has undergone a dramatic transformation in recent years. With high-rise condos and plenty of parks, it's a lovely place to stay, and also closely located to Boston's sports stadiums.
  • Downtown - if you don't mind spending a bit more then this is the perfect place to base yourself. There's a wonderful blend of old and new, whilst you're also only 20 minutes form the airport.
  • Beacon Hill - home to many of the city's members of Congress, this smart area has plenty of stately homes and enjoys an enviably central location overlooking the Massachusetts State House.
  • Back Bay - this upscale area boasts a number of elegant churches and smart Victorian brownstones. There are plenty of lovely shopping spots, as well as a number of glitzy restaurants.
  • South End - slightly further out, this neighbourhood is home to a number of lovely parks, trendy boutiques and buzzy bars. Perfect for the classy traveller who likes to surround themselves with like-minded people.
  • Fenway/Kenmore - the area is littered with contrasts: located close enough to the city's universities to be home to plenty of intellectuals, yet also brimming with basement beer bars and raucous Red Sox fans. A fun spot!

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.
