Boston is the largest city in New England, the capital of the state of Massachusetts, and one of the most wealthy, historic and influential cities in the United States of America.
Its overabundance of museums, historical sights, and wealth of live performances, all explain why the city gets in excess of ten million visitors a year, making it one of the ten most popular tourist locations in the whole of the USA. Boston is home to the famous Fenway Park, the oldest baseball park in America, and the sunny weather in the summer months makes it perfect for a day out or spending long days on the beautiful beaches. In the winter months you are never far from some top of the range slopes that are popular with both locals and tourists.
Shopping in Boston is a rewarding activity, with eight blocks of trendy boutiques, hair salons and galleries on Newbury Street; it makes for a wonderful day of shopping and dining, or simply stop off in a café and people watch in this wonderfully diverse area. The city is also home to the oldest park in America; the Boston Common and Public Garden; take a ride on the famous swan boats or stroll across the world’s shortest suspension bridge. The Boston Common is also the starting point for the Freedom Tour, a walking tour that takes you round 16 stunning historical sites.
