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 Heritage Museums & Gardens capture your imagination. Get outdoors at Race Point Beach and Herring Cove Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Boston: Cliff Walk (in Newport), Provincetown (Long Point, Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum, & more) and Ogunquit (Ogunquit Beach & Marginal Way Walkway). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Freedom Trail, don't miss a visit to Louisburg Square, enjoy the sand and surf at Wallis Sands State Beach, and admire the natural beauty at Boston Public Garden.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Boston road trip planning app .

In August, daily temperatures in Boston can reach 81°F, while at night they dip to 65°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
