Boston's Best Attractions and Activities Offer Something for Everyone



Boston is home to historically significant sites, marvelous museums and unique outdoor adventures. Enjoy your stay by sampling a little bit of all the things that come together to create today's Boston.

The easiest way to see as many attractions as possible is to walk Boston's Freedom Trail. The famous red line that marks the path meanders along Boston's sidewalks as it takes you from site to site. Sixteen official sites line the Freedom Trail and include historically significant spots like Paul Revere House, Granary Burial Ground, Old South Meeting House and USS Constitution. Grab a map at the Boston Common before you set off on your exploration and see where the trail leads. 

History is not all that Boston has to offer; home to many museums, parks, sporting venues, public spaces and adventure tours, you'll never be at a loss for something new to do.

Enjoy a wild water adventure while cruising around the Harbor on a Boston Mini Speed Boat tour. You'll be able to see important landmarks from a new perspective when you're behind the wheel of a your speed boat. 

Cultural exploration is easy with a visit to an art museum, the New England Aquarium, or tickets to a performance at the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Sports fanatics should not miss a trip to Fenway Park. This national landmark is more than 100 years old and remains one of the best stadiums to see a baseball game.
