Introduction

The historical 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 is one of the world's great walking cities, offering travellers plenty of shops, hotels, museums and sports attractions. Filled with historic neighbourhoods and famous attractions, the city is also reputed as a centre of learning, home to more colleges than anywhere else in the world.

Must-sees include the waterfront New England Aquarium, watching a Red Sox game at Fenway Park, and a stroll among the trendy boutiques, art galleries and sidewalk cafes of Newbury Street.

The Freedom Trail from Boston Common to Bunker Hill is red-brink route through central city and Old Boston that links major Revolutionary War sites, including Paul Revere House and Old North Church.

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 of greater Boston and beyond.
