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.
Visiting Race Point Beach and Dolphin & Whale Watching will get you outdoors. For shopping fun, head to Faneuil Hall Marketplace or Charles Street. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Boston: Cliff Walk (in Newport), Ogunquit (Marginal Way Walkway & Ogunquit Beach) and Provincetown (Herring Cove Beach, Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum, & more). Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, appreciate the extensive heritage of Freedom Trail, take an in-depth tour of The House of the Seven Gables, and look for gifts at Newbury Comics.
