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.
Let the collections at Museum of Fine Arts and Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum capture your imagination. Shop till you drop at Faneuil Hall Marketplace and TD Garden. Change things up with these side-trips from Boston: Provincetown (Race Point Beach & Long Point) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Gloucester). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Newbury Street, don't miss a visit to Charles Street, admire all the interesting features of Fenway Park, and get to know the fascinating history of Freedom Trail.
