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.
Old State House and Heritage Museums & Gardens will appeal to museum buffs. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Thames Street and When Pigs Fly Company Store. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Boston: Gloucester (Good Harbor Beach & Cape Ann Museum), Rockport (Halibut Point State Park & Bearskin Neck) and Wiggly Bridge and Steedman Woods (in York Harbor). Next up on the itinerary: explore the different monuments and memorials at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, contemplate the long history of Captain Jackson’s Historic Chocolate Shop and the Printing Office of Edes and Gill, engage your brain at Sandwich Glass Museum, and stroll through Castle Island.

To find other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Boston trip planning tool.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 75°F, and evening lows to 59°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
