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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Boston: Five Stone Arch Bridges (in Hillsborough), Kimball-Jenkins Estate (in Concord) and Brewster Gardens (in Plymouth). There's lots more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Mount Auburn Cemetery, browse the exhibits of Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, get curious at Museum of Science, and browse the collection at Boston Public Library.

For photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Boston day trip planner.

Lisbon, Portugal to Boston is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Western European Standard Time (WET) to Eastern Standard Time (EST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Lisbon in April: high temperatures in Boston hover around °C and lows are around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to New York City.
