It’s difficult to do justice to any city as large and as rich in culture as Boston. We have collected what we think are the top things to do here and they aren’t all about museums and monuments. If you want to get the most out of your time here, these are the places to go.
The Freedom Trail
The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile tour that takes in 16 sites of historical significance. We suggest taking a guided tour, although you’ll have to forgive the costumes. If that doesn’t appeal, you can download a map and follow your own route, which is fun too.
South End used to be a no-go area until the creative crowd moved in. Things improved rapidly and the area is now a lively, fun place full of cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques. It’s a trendy, arty district with a lot going on. It isn’t as bohemian as it once was, but it still has a lot to offer.
Institute of Contemporary Art
The Institute of Contemporary Art, or ICA, is a fabulously outrageous building that is talked about as much for how it looks as to what treasures it contains. The museum is unashamedly modern which is reflected in the exhibitions and galleries contained within. Overlooking Boston Harbor, this is something everyone has to see.
Boston Public Garden
The Boston Public Garden is a fascinating stop in your tour of Boston. It is America’s first public garden, home to over 600 types of tree and regionally-famous swan boats. It’s a great place to spend a spring day as flowers come into bloom and the weather clears up. It’s also an oasis in the city and gets busy during the workday.
Fenway Park is the oldest baseball park in the country. It’s small, seats are close to the action and the entire stadium gives you a glimpse of how the game used to be. Located downtown, it’s easy to get to, although tickets can be hard to get. Book early if you want to see a game.
Boston Public Library
The Boston Public Library in Copley Square is America’s first public library and home to hundreds of thousands of documents, maps and books. The architecture of the two buildings that make up the library is fascinating and the courtyard is a very peaceful place to spend an hour of your time.
Beacon Hill allows you to travel back in time to how our country used to be. It’s full of red brick buildings, cobbled streets, gas lamps and history. It is exactly how you imagine it to be, with Acorn Street being one of the prettiest areas of the entire city. Make your way to Charles Street for some of the best dining and shopping in town.
