A tremendous variety of sights, sounds and experiences await you in Greater Boston. Fortunately, the area lends itself prefectly for exploring — by foot, by T and even by boat. If you plan on doing a lot of walking, you may want to explore by location — for example, you can head over to Harvard Square in Cambridge or the North End of Boston. If you'd rather just sit back and relax, consider a guided tour. Tour companies can tell you the stories behind an area's history. And as an added bonus, since they do the driving, you don't have to deal with Greater Boston's world-famous drivers.
