    Freedom Trail

    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 ...

    While you very well may encounter a good number of overprivileged yuppies and self-important professor types wandering around the square, you shouldn't let this stop you from paying the place a visit. The international community here is astounding, which makes for a uniquely diverse neighborhood with tons of different shops and eateries catering to both the stingiest and most indulgent ...

    Museum of Fine Arts

    38 reviews

    I absolutely loved the Museum of Fine Arts. I came here several years ago for the Edward Hopper exhibit when I was backpacking down the East Coast. Here was a guy who recognized the simple poignancy of singular commonplace things. "His quiet, yet riveting, pictures of people in their apartments, offices, and hotel rooms express both a sense of urban ...

    USS Constitution Museum

    39 reviews

    We got to the USS Constitution a little too late to join the last tour, but the museum was still open. Admission is donations only. They have an exhibit with model ships people built, which are just amazing! They are very detailed and impressive. Kids would have fun upstairs experiencing what it would be like to scrub the floors of ...

    North End

    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.

    The rich history of Boston creates an urban aura of deeply rooted pride in native Bostonians as well as the city's visiting tourists. These gardens are sanctuaries in the midst of the surrounding buzz of city chaos. Truly a beautiful, serene spot to go to either with company or on your own.

    TD Banknorth Garden

    21 reviews

    Scream and pound your chest just like KG, but in a place where it's actually socially acceptable. It's not the old Boston Garden, but the new stadium still provides a venue for rabid fans to berate the refs from the upper sections. The lower section is much more civilized, but what fun is that?

    Boston Duck Tours

    23 reviews

    I'm not sure who had more fun on the Boston Duck Tour I went on: the kids, the parents or the grandparents. These amphibious vehicles (built for WWII) literally drive straight from land into the sea, so you get a tour of not only Boston's major sites within the city, but the beautiful Charles River. Totally campy, but so much ...

    Very difficult to get to being it’s in the north end of Boston. This is where the Lanterns were hung for Paul Revere Ride. Disability access is difficult because of narrower street with very little parking in the area.

    Skywalk Observatory

    22 reviews

    Одно из самых высоких зданий в городе. На верхних этажах - отличная смотровая площадка. Замечательная панорама города!!! 360 градусов. Все как на ладони. Лучше всего посещать вечером перед закатом, чтобы была возможность посмотреть на город и в лучах дневного солнца и в огнях ночной подсветки.
