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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Powder Mill Ledges Wildlife Refuge and Swasey Parkway. Get out of town with these interesting Boston side-trips: Whitney and Thayer Woods (in Hingham), Pezza Farms (in Johnston) and Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary (in Scituate). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Boston Public Garden, take an in-depth tour of New England Holocaust Memorial, identify plant and animal life at Adams Point, and delve into the lush surroundings at Massabesic Audubon Center.
