    Fenway Park

    4.5
    89 reviews

    As a place, interesting for sure. As a event space, really a great slice of local culture. Not so sure I'd want to visit if there wasn't a game on (unless for one of the rare concerts :) )

    Boston Common

    4.5
    85 reviews

    Best spot to relax in Boston! The park is a sanctuary and absolutely beautiful in the summer. It's sizable with plenty of places to picnic, have some casual fun with the family, and read. Entertainment, shopping and good food are just minutes away with the theater district, North End, Chinatown. Shakespear on the Commons (free) during the summer days is ...

    Freedom Trail

    4.5
    61 reviews

    If it's not an incredibly blistering hot Boston day, I would recommend following the Freedom Trail for an adventure through history. If possible, get a guide or use your smartphone to look up each of the stops so you can really get a sense of how important each attraction is.

    Newbury Street

    4.5
    49 reviews

    My two favorite things about Newbury Street are the buildings--beautiful old brownstones with bay windows and charming front stoops, and its plethora of outdoor dining patios--there's just nothing like dining alfresco while watching the hoards of shoppers make their way down the street. And while it can be difficult not to spend tons of money here, it is possible to ...

    44 reviews

    This is one of my favorite aquariums, especially the huge central tank with everything from sharks to turtles. Keep your eyes open for the unique events that take place here quite often.

    Museum of Fine Arts

    4.5
    38 reviews

    One of several top museums in Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts is a world class art museum. Spend a couple of hours seeing the highlights or spend the entire day. The collection is impressive.

    USS Constitution Museum

    4.5
    39 reviews

    The USS Constitution is one of the oldest commissioned ships in the US. On this tour you'll get to tour the ship itself on the inside as well as see the museum. It's pretty cool as a relic of the US in the past, and you get some rich history. Must-see.

    Faneuil Hall Marketplace

    4
    47 reviews

    I'd say this is the best place for souvenir shopping. Too bad I didn't have the time to shop around here :( There's a food court inside and it's close to North end. The street performers reminded me a lot of Santa Monica third Street promenade. Where they try to get a crowd before they perform and peer pressure you ...

    North End

    4.5
    35 reviews

    This is a slice of Italy, right in Boston! Great cafes and restaurants. Hannover Street is the main tourist draw, but you will find better, less expensive and more authentic food on one of the many side streets. After dinner, don't forget your pastries from Mike's (if you're willing to wait in line) or Modern.

    Public Garden

    4.5
    32 reviews

    Such an incredible public space. This place is almost like a painting from a few hundred years ago. There are lakes with bridges, swan boats, statues and plenty of benches facing the water. A perfect place to walk, reflect or have a picnic.

    Faneuil Hall

    4
    34 reviews

    On my first visit to Boston as a high school student, this place was heaven to me. Today, I mostly avoid it, although it has good shopping, and a great European style food market with some excellent choices. It's worth seeing, if you've never been.

    This is the place for the whole family to spend a day. There is a large parking garage and the cost is reasonable. Whether you are interested in engineering, math, astronomy, biology, archeology, medicine, or nature, there is an exhibit for you. Check out the live animal exhibit, too. There is also a food court and a shop with all ...

    4.5
    23 reviews

    We love things that float so of course we are huge fans of these reconditioned amphibious World War II landing crafts! There is no better way to tour the city than on a Duck Boat! Hop on board at any one of the following locations: Huntington Ave. near the Prudential Center, Museum of Science, or New England Aquarium. You won't ...

    Old North Church

    4.5
    23 reviews

    This colonial church was very insightful. I hadnt been in one like this before.It is set up in a completely different style than I had been used to. However, it was extremely common for its time. It was very interesting to see how the pews were set up by family boxes and non members were not really welcomed as they ...

    Boston's library is amazingly beautiful. The courtyard is home to concerts in the summer and other artistic exhibitions are hosted year round. Definitely worth popping in to see if you love old buildings! Also it's free!

At the top, there is a nice restaurant and an observation deck with a 360 degree view of Boston. The Prudential Center has offices, apartments, restaurants, a work out facility, a super market, ...

    The Esplanade has beautiful views of the Boston skyline across the water, and is a great place for running (there are plenty of water fountains along the route). You can get a nice view of all the crew houses along the water as well, and if you're ever in Boston during The Head of the Charles Regatta, be sure to ...

    20 reviews

    The outside is modest, but when you enter, there is understanding as to why it's listed on the "1000 places to go before you die" book. It's a gem in between the medical campuses and downtown boston. Lovely visit!
