Rich in museums, restaurants, shops, and historical sites, Boston attracts over 16 million visitors each year. New England's largest and most influential city, Boston ranks among the world's major centers of education and culture.
Get some historical perspective at Walden Pond State Reservation and Plymouth Rock. Visit Herring Cove Beach and Long Sands Beach for some beach relaxation. Explore Boston's surroundings by going to Provincetown (Long Point, Race Point Beach, & more), Cape Cod Canal (in Buzzards Bay) and Wallis Sands State Beach (in Rye). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, appreciate the extensive heritage of Freedom Trail, stop by Brookline Booksmith, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Charles River Esplanade.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island. Head to Fifth Avenue and Strand Bookstorefor some retail therapy. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Gateway National Recreation in Sandy Hook, approximately 40 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art, make a trip to Statue of Liberty National Monument, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
