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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Boston: Newport (Cliff Walk & The Breakers), Marginal Way Walkway (in Ogunquit) and Milk and Honey Bazaar (in Tiverton). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, get a taste of the local shopping with Faneuil Hall Marketplace, take a stroll through North End, and stroll around Boston Common.

For other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Boston trip builder tool .

In December in Boston, expect temperatures between 43°F during the day and 31°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
