Where to stay in Boston

Exploring Boston

Home to over four million people, Boston is the fifth-largest city in the United States and the largest city in the New England area. It is one of the country’s most influential, wealthy and historical cities and was the scene of a number of the country’s key events, including the Battle of Bunker Hill and the Boston Tea Party. Boston was the first city in the United Stated to have a school and a subway system, which over 30 per cent of the population uses today. Still, Boston is often pegged as ‘The Walking City’, as its core is quite compact and easy to explore on foot.

Boston is home to a plethora of attractions that include museums, galleries, parks and historical sites, which is probably why over 16 million people visit the city each year. It is a diverse city that is made up of numerous neighbourhoods that all have something different to offer. Upscale ones, Italian, African-American and Irish-American neighbourhoods are just a few examples of Boston’s diversity. Still, it is the city’s downtown core that receives the most visitors, as it is home to Fanueil Hall, Boston Common and the Massachusetts State House.

This 2.5-mile walking trail is an enjoyable way to look into Boston’s famous history, which dates back to the Revolutionary War. The trail takes visitors to 10 of the city’s most historical landmarks, including Boston Common, King's Chapel Burying Ground, the Site of the Boston Massacre and Bunker Hill Monument. It also makes its way to other sites, including churches, meetinghouses, museums and historical ships. This is the best way to step back into time and learn about the American Revolution and Boston’s important role in it.
