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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Cape Cod Canal (in Buzzards Bay), Marginal Way Walkway (in Ogunquit) and Sandwich (Sandwich Glass Museum & Heritage Museums & Gardens). There's still lots to do: explore and take pictures at Fenway Park, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, and take a stroll through North End.

To see where to stay, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, read our Boston trip itinerary maker.

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in July, and nighttime lows around 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
