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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Museum of Fine Arts and Orchard House. Freedom Trail and Mount Auburn Cemetery will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Boston: Peabody Essex Museum (in Salem) and Buckman Tavern (in Lexington). There's lots more to do: admire all the interesting features of Fenway Park, take in nature's colorful creations at Boston Public Garden, take an in-depth tour of John F. Kennedy Presidential Museum & Library, and get to know the fascinating history of Louisburg Square.
