The Athens of America

Visit Boston


Bathed in history, the city of Boston is regarded as the unofficial capital of New England. Founded around a large natural harbour at the mouth of the Charles River, it’s one of the world's great walking cities, filled with historic neighbourhoods and famous attractions. It’s also a world-renowned centre of learning, home to more colleges than anywhere else in the world, not least that bastion of education – Harvard.

Boston's World-class attractions

Boston’s myriad attractions are second to none, offering something for all ages and interests. Once dubbed he Athens of America, its cultural wealth is extraordinary, showcased in such highlights as the Museum of Fine Arts, the excellent Boston Tea Party Ships and performances by the renowned Boston Symphony Orchestra. And, don't forget to visit the Skywalk Observatory in the Prudential Center for Boston's only 360-degree sky-high vantage point for views across the city and beyond.

American history, brought to life

Throughout Boston and its cobblestone streets, this is a city alive with stories from the past. To explore them in detail, head out along the Freedom Trail from Boston Common to Bunker Hill; it’s a route through central city and Old Boston that links major Revolutionary War sites, including Paul Revere House and Old North Church.

A city of sport

Boston is a city passionate about its sports. And it’s perhaps no surprise when you consider the teams that are based here. The Boston Red Sox have won the World Series no fewer than eight times, while the until-recently all-conquering Patriots have come up trumps in the Super Bowl on four occasions. Then there’s the Celtics – one of the NBA’s most successful teams. The city is also the stage for the Boston Marathon, America’s oldest and most prestigious running event.

Fabulous food in Boston

Creamy chowders, fresh lobster, oysters and cod – Boston’s seafood is some of America’s finest. For the best of it, head to the Seaport District where all-encompassing menus are complemented by a convivial atmosphere and wonderful harbour views. Elsewhere, the city’s immigrant heritage is reflected in the Asian restaurants and delicious pasta dishes in the Italian-centric North End.
