The best things to do in Boston

One of the most popular attractions in Boston is the Freedom Trail. Over the 4 kilometers of red bricks that make up the route, you'll find some of the best things to do in Boston, like the Boston Common, the oldest urban park in the United States and the Bunker Hill Monument, which commemorates one of the major battles between the English and the American revolutionaries. The route will also lead to other Boston attractions, like Faneuil Hall, and Newbury Street, the city's main shopping street. 

As the main cultural center of New England, museums are among the top places to visit in Boston.  Do not miss the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, a visit to which is one of the most intimate and special of Boston activities. Set in a mansion, Fenway Court houses an extensive collection of over 2,500 works of European, American and Asian art. 

Along with museums, universities are another of the most important things to see in Boston. In the nearby town of Cambridge is Harvard University, one of the most important universities in the world, and the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). And if you've had enough of the city, take a ferry and check out the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area, one of the best places to see in Boston for nature lovers.
