Boston
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.
For shopping fun, head to Faneuil Hall Marketplace or Brookline Booksmith. Venture out of the city with trips to Marginal Way Walkway (in Ogunquit), Provincetown (Herring Cove Beach, Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum, & more) and Plymouth Rock (in Plymouth). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Freedom Trail, explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, tour the pleasant surroundings at Boston Common, and see the interesting displays at Heritage Museums & Gardens.
