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 Newbury Street. Get a sense of the local culture at Museum of Fine Arts and Heritage Museums & Gardens. Venture out of the city with trips to Sandwich Glass Museum (in Sandwich), Newport (The Breakers & Cliff Walk) and Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House (in Concord). There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Freedom Trail, explore the world behind art at Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, get curious at Museum of Science, and get engrossed in the history at Old South Meeting House.
