As one of the oldest cities in the USA and the gateway to New England, Boston is bursting with history, culture and nature. Be sure to walk the 2.5-mile Freedom Trail and discover the crucial role the city played in the founding of the nation, and visit the Bunker Hill Museum for some insight into the American Revolution. ‘Beantown’ is also home to some of most prestigious universities (Harvard, MIT etc.) on the planet, and sports fans will love the iconic Fenway Park, where the Red Sox will show you just how baseball is done. The real star of the show though is the Boston Common – America’s oldest public park and the perfect place to appreciate the New England moniker.
