About Boston, MA Attractions
No matter your interests, you’re sure to find a perfect fit among the many faces of Boston. If you’re an avid histroy buff, there is no better place to fill a fix than here. Let history come alive as you walk one of the many trails that combine to create an early American tour of the city:The Freedom Trail, the Black Heritage Trail, and the Women’s Heritage Trail. These pathways allow visitors to enter the action and really learn about American Patriots like Revere, Hancock, and Longfellow. If history is not your passion then there are beautiful public parks and gardens within range. Spend time at the Boston Common seeking solace on the green, or pondering at the Frog Pond. Let the kids play in the public playground, or go for a spin on the carousel. Wander into the Public Garden and enjoy the landscaping surrounding the lagoon; watch from afar or pay for a ride on the famous Swan Boats. Looking for an excellent museum? Boston has a bunch; pick your passion and you'll find the perfect place to explore it a bit more. Sea lovers light up at the New England Aquarium, science geeks find comfort in the Museum of Science and art lovers cannot get enough of the many museums dedicated to showcasing art throughout the city (MFA, ICA, and Isabella Stewart Gardener are a few). Sports fans are in a fantastic spot to catch a game, three professional sports teams call Boston proper their home: the Sox, Celtics and Bruins (the Patriots are just a short ride away). Seeking the perfect tour to tie it all together, step onto a Duck Boat and see the city from both land and sea to help you decide where you'd like to spend a little more time.
