    It's not New York City's Central Park, but it's a good place to go for a walk or run during late spring or early fall.

    Freedom Trail

    4.5
    61 reviews

    So maybe you're not a history buff. I get it--I'm not either. But even I can admit that the Freedom Trail is a seriously cool and genuinely unique landmark. It's just amazing when you start to think back to the days when America was just becoming established, and it all went down right here, where we're still living and thriving ...

    Harvard Square

    18 Brattle Street, Cambridge MA 02138-3755
    4.5
    61 reviews

    For many people Harvard Square is synonymous with Boston, and for good reason. With the hustle and bustle of students, tourists and locals, Cambridge is as much of a city as Boston itself. Just a few stops down on the red line T, this famous square is definitely worth checking out. Stroll through the Harvard campus through the oaks and ...

    Newbury Street

    49 reviews

    Really, the fifth avenue of Boston. All along the street, is filled with high end shops, even some of the rare European and Japanese brands that cannot be easily found in the rest of US, excellent spot for browsing the latest fashion. Secondary to the fashion scene, there are also plenty of classy food choices here.

    Museum of Fine Arts

    465 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA
    4.5
    38 reviews

    The museums may be the very best thing about America's great cities, and Boston's MFA is a particularly fine example. With a rotunda painted by no less eminent an artist than John Singer Sargent, the building is fantastic and the breadth and depth of the collection are stunning. If you've got time, it's worth paying the museum more than one ...

    Harvard University

    26 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA 02138-2902
    4.5
    44 reviews

    Arguably the world's best university and certainly the richest. I work in the 'other Cambridge' in the UK, but it's hard not to be impressed by both Harvard's resources and the way it uses them. Lots of beautiful buildings as well and plenty for tourists.

    North End

    Hanover Street and Prince Street, Boston, MA 02113
    4.5
    34 reviews

    I love anything involving pasta and/or cheese, so naturally I'm a huge fan of the North End, Boston's little Italy. I like to come here when I want to get away from the pretentious, New-Englandy-ness of Boston and pretend I'm in Italy, wandering the cobblestone streets of the old world. And you really can't go wrong with any of the ...

    USS Constitution Museum

    24 5th St, Charlestown, MA, United States
    4.5
    39 reviews

    I'll admit that I didn't actually know much about the USS Constitution before I visited, but I'm a born-and-raised New Englander, so naturally I'm an avid sailor and love anything nautical. But did you know that the USS Constitution was launched in 1797? 1797, and it's still afloat and commissioned by the Navy. It's incredible! And when you think of ...

    I'm taking off a star, since this is maybe one of the most crowded, touristy spots on the planet, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a good time when I come to Faneuil Hall. There energy there is off the charts. And while the place is crawling with vendors trying to make a buck, I find ...

    Faneuil Hall

    1 Faneuil Hall Sq,, Boston, MA 02109-1632

    34 reviews

    Faneuil Hall has so much history in it, as it used to be the meeting place, much like City Hall. The decor really makes you feel like you're attending a meeting back in the day. There's a staff member who talks about the history of the hall in detail every half an hour or so.

    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.

    I love love love the Charles RIver Esplanade. It is a fitness nut's paradise, with beautiful riverside paths perfect for walking, running, biking and roller blading. And there's even a section reserved for strength training with a cushioned area for stretching and yoga, pull-up bars, and various other equipment for achieving the perfect pushup or sit-up. The views of the ...

    I don't have a habit of visiting local public libraries when traveling, but I would recommend stopping by the Boston one. It has amazing architecture and the interior is fun to explore with its high ceilings and halls. They even have a little garden outside in the middle of the library.

    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!
