BOSTON Hey, Beantown!

Boston

Famous largely for the locals’ distinctive accents, Boston is the largest city in New England and is located on the East Coast of the United States in the state of Massachusetts.

Boston is a beautiful city with so much to offer all year round. Whether you like history, sport or nightlife, Boston has it all.

 

Where to Stay

 

Back Bay is a popular neighbourhood in Boston, particularly for those who appreciate some retail therapy. The Prudential Centre and Copley Place malls offer a connecting bridge to ensure you and your purchases stay sheltered from the elements, a fantastic idea during winter.

The Westin Hotel is also connected to the malls so in winter you can make your way through the shopping malls without having to brave the cold harsh weather conditions.

Downtown Boston is also an area close to many attractions and would be an ideal location to stay.

 

Things To Do And See

 

The Freedom Trail

The Freedom Trail is an approximately four kilometre historic walking tour to significant historical sites in Boston. The tour follows a red brick line through the streets of Boston to each site.  Some sites require a small fee to enter, others are free.  This tour can be done at your own pace and is a great way to see some of Boston’s famous attractions and the beautiful city as you go.

 

Fenway Park

Fenway Park is home to the Boston Red Sox Major League Baseball (MLB) team and well known for the ‘green monster’ – the giant green scoreboard that stands its ground at leftfield.

 

TD Garden

TD Garden is home to the Boston Celtics National Basketball Association (NBA) team and the Boston Bruins National Hockey League (NHL) team. I’d recommend catching a game of either while you are in the city, depending on the season.

 

Quincy Markets

The Quincy Market is a historic market in downtown Boston and a location on the Freedom Trail.  The market was built between 1824-1826 by the then Major, Josiah Quincy. The markets have a great range of food, beverages and knick-knack items including souvenirs.

 

Cheers

The original location of the bar featured in the famous sitcom can be found on Beacon Street, with the replica at Faneuil Hall.

 

Harvard University

Harvard University is one of the most prestigious universities in the world.  Harvard is a research university located in Cambridge, Massachusetts and established in 1636.  The university was also where social networking giant, Facebook, was created and first used.
