A city steeped in old-world ambience or a bustling, cosmopolitan urban center? Boston is both. A strikingly contemporary suspension bridge at the entrance to the city symbolizes the new; the nearby Paul Revere House stands as a testament to Boston’s revolutionary past. Add to the mix: great art museums, lively sidewalk cafes; and sophisticated dining and shopping.
The Theater District now extends to the South End and the new stages at the Boston Center for the Arts. Families flock to the New England Aquarium, the Boston Children’s Museum, and the Museum of Science. Boston Duck Tours’ brightly painted amphibious vehicles and the elegant Boston Swan Boats appeal to all ages. The Prudential Skywalk Observation Deck provides stunning views of the city and the harbor. Newbury Street is a stroller’s paradise – galleries, boutiques, and sidewalk restaurants cater to the fashionable and the funky. The Black Heritage Trail focuses on the city’s 19th-century African-American community; the Freedom Trail encompasses 350 years of American history.
Pedal through Boston’s neighborhoods on an escorted bike tour; tour America’s oldest ballpark, Fenway Park; get an up-close look at the art and architecture of the Boston Public Library; or immerse yourself in the food and vibrant Italian culture of the North End.
Just 10 miles south of Boston, the Adams National Historical Park in Quincy features the splendid homes and gardens of two presidents: John Adams and John Quincy Adams.
