You will need at least 3 days to make a short trip of highlights of national Parks Historical Sites in the downtown Boston. For more sights outside of the downtown Boston it would be easier to move to outside area of Boston to cut down on hotel cost plus avoiding traffic jams.

Rent a car and explore this fascinating region! It seems like everything historical is not farther that an hour and a half away. After you've done the suburbs hit the Cape for beautiful views and lobster rolls.

Boston is a perfect blend of history and modernity. In the same harbor that the first settlers threw tea in protest of British rule, one can now see beautifully sleek power boats and luxury yachts. There are modern skyscrapers built right next to old brick buildings, and graveyards of some of the best-known patriots lie a stone's throw from the hippest restaurants in town. Boston is heavy on old New England charm, but its streets do not accommodate modern traffic very well at all. Prepare to get frustrated if you drive anywhere in the city; just remember that it was built for horses and buggies, not SUVs. Your GPS will probably let you know that it's busy "recalculating."

There's something mythical about Boston and its surrounding areas. With the beautiful nature and the incredible history, it's like a picture-perfect look into America's past. The beach areas are pristine, granted the water is freezing, and the cuisine is spectacular.

This is an amazing and historic city, which blends old and new seamlessly. Yes, It's sports fans are fanatical (go sox!) but the city really has something for everyone, with world class universities, great museums and beautiful outdoor spaces.Recommended for

Famous for its plethora of universities, historical significance, and rabid sports fans, Greater Boston is a great place to visit and and even better place to live. From the Swan Boats in the Boston Common to the authentic Italian restaurants in the North End to the stops along the Freedom Trail that you read about in High School text books, there's plenty here for tourists and locals alike. And unlike many other major cities, it's all pretty walkable. Yes, the Green Line has been known to derail anger management efforts, but the rest of the city is a lot of fun to explore. Fenway Park and the TD Garden offer some of Boston's more high-adrenaline events between the Red Sox and Celtics, and while there's a decent chance of getting into a scuffle in either venue if you really try, Boston sports fans are pretty civil outside of that. You're unlikely to risk physical injury just for wearing a Yankees hat, for instance, but you'll definitely be given wrong directions. Make sure to hop on the Red Line and cross the river to check out with many sights and restaurants in Cambridge and Somerville, as well. Pick up a free copy of the Weekly Dig or go to www.boston.com to check out upcoming events, concerts, speakers, etc.
