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.
Escape the urban bustle at Shining Sea Bikeway and Halibut Point State Park. Discover out-of-the-way places like Strawbery Banke Museum and Long Sands Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Boston: Lizzie Borden House (in Fall River), National Monument to the Forefathers (in Plymouth) and Hoxie House (in Sandwich). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Purgatory Chasm State Reservation, get to know the fascinating history of Freedom Trail, steep yourself in history at Captain Jackson’s Historic Chocolate Shop and the Printing Office of Edes and Gill, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts.

In May, daily temperatures in Boston can reach 22°C, while at night they dip to 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
