Boston, Massachusetts

As New England’s social and commercial “hub,” Boston is a vibrant, thriving city known for its cultural facilities, historical landmarks and world-class educational institutions. You can easily uncover the city’s past while enjoying its distinctively modern edge.

Boston is at its most beautiful in the fall. As the leaves turn, Boston’s parks put on an unforgettable show, complementing the historic architecture. A walk along the city’s Freedom Trail now doubles as a foliage tour. It’s a great time to visit Boston's Faneuil Hall Marketplace, as the crowds thin out, but the weather is still pleasant. On a cooler day, take a stroll through the gorgeous indoor courtyard of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. There’s history to be enjoyed as well as the freshest local seafood. There are pocket-parks, public squares and the Arnold Arboretum to stroll or picnic.

The Boston dining scene is one of the country's finest. Award-winning chefs have flocked here in recent years, inspiring the locals to win awards of their own. High-end cuisine abounds and comfort food has reached gourmet levels. Seafood tastes better with waterfront views and a cappuccino in a North End cafe can't be topped without visiting Italy itself.

Boston shops and galleries are inviting any time of year - whether you’re a serious and seasoned shopper, a bona-fide bargain hunter or a whimsical window shopper. You can browse glass-enclosed arcades, meander open-air marketplaces and stroll among independent brownstone boutiques. For the latest in chic, shop Newbury Street in the Back Bay. Think of an upscale retailer - they’re likely in Copley Place.

The Boston art scene is one of the country's most robust, with museums dedicated to everything from classic to contemporary. Visit the Boston Museum of Fine Arts to view the works of the Great Masters or the edgy works of art at the new Institute of Contemporary Art on the waterfront.

Boston is a wonderful blend of stylish sophistication and historic New England charm. You can easily uncover the city’s past while enjoying its distinctively modern edge.
