Five Things To Do In Boston

If you ever get the chance to visit Boston, Massachusetts, you’ll be delighted by the historic charm and modern flourish embodied in one of America’s favorite cities. Here are five things to do during your visit that will give you a sense of the city and let you have some fun at the same time:

  1. Boston Duck Tours: The “duck boats” used for these tours of Boston by land and water are refurbished amphibious landing vehicles from the WWII era. Your tour on the Duck Boat will take you past many of Boston’s famous landmarks on your way to the portion that makes the tours so much fun: your tour concludes with a splash as your Duck Boat takes to the Charles River for a floating view of the city.
  2. The Skywalk at Prudential Center: Take a short elevator ride to the top of the city and enjoy a clear view of the entire city from the viewing deck at The Prudential Center, one of Boston’s skyscrapers.
  3. Walk The Freedom Trail: A walking route through Boston’s most famous historic areas includes many of the city’s historic landmarks. The Freedom Trail is a great way to learn about the role Boston played in the American Revolution and many of the events that have shaped the city into what it is today.
  4. Visit The USS Constitution: If you have any interest in boats or how historical nautical battles were fought, “Old Ironsides” is a must-see attraction. Following a recent $7 million renovation, the USS Constitution has been restored to her pre-1812 condition and offers tours year-round for visitors who want to visit the old battleship.
  5. Catch a Baseball Game at Fenway Park: If you spend any amount of time in Boston, you’ll soon discover that her residents are extremely passionate about sports. Fenway Park is the home of Boston’s famous baseball team: The Boston Red Sox. It has been said by many that a perfect summer evening is one spent watching the Red Sox beat the New York Yankees from the Green Monster.
