Overview

Boston is one of the largest, and most historic (founded in 1630), cities in the United States. In fact, Boston is the largest city in the New England region of the United States. Boston and its surrounding areas are home to many well known colleges and universities (such as Boston University and Harvard University).

Home of historic events including the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Bunker Hill, Boston has a long and interesting history. A popular tourist attraction to take part in, to learn about Boston's history, is the Freedom Trail (see below for more information).

Tourist Attractions
The Faneuil Hall Market Place, which has been around for over 250 years, is one of the most popular shopping, lounging and dining areas in Boston and offers a wide range of bars, dining options (including fine dining, casual dining and desserts) and stores to choose from. The market place consists of five main buildings, the most well-known of which is the Quincy Market. Inside the Quincy Market is a food court, bars and various kiosks.

An excellent way to see most of Boston at once is to go to the Prudential Center Skywalk Observatory. From the top of the building you can enjoy amazing views of the city and its surrounding area. There is also a shopping mall within the building.

Fenway Park, also located in Boston, is the home of the Boston Red Sox, one of the most popular professional baseball teams in the United States.

The Freedom Trail is a three-mile walk, guided by red paint, that links various historical sites in Boston. The trail is usually started at Boston Commons (the oldest public park in America). Some of the historical landmarks include Granary Burying Ground, State House, Park Street Church and the Bunker Hill Monument.

Another popular tourist activity is taking a Duck Tour (see picture to the right). A Boston Duck Tour is a narrated tour of the city on a vehicle that can drive on the road and also sail in the water. This is a very energetic activity that involves a lot of laughing and quacking!
