You’re dreaming of lobster straight from the sea, fresh oysters or enough lasagne to feed a whole family—but you’re stuck with your same old office salad or sandwich. It’s definitely time to switch it up, and Boston holidays are sure to be revolutionary. From walking through Boston Common to getting up close and personal with historic figures, you’ll find plenty to do in “New York City’s little sister”. (Er, don’t tell it we called it that.)
Start your tour at Boston Common, America’s oldest public park. It used to have the colony’s stocks and whipping post, but the only “whip” you’ll see there these days might be the dance move during a flash mob. The 4-km Freedom Trail starts at the Visitor Center on the Common and stops at sites like Granary Burying Ground, the resting place of famous Americans like Paul Revere and Samuel Adams. The latter is a Declaration of Independence-signer and beer-brand name-lender (you can most likely raise a glass in remembrance at any of our hotels in Boston).
If you follow the Freedom Trail into the North End, Boston’s “Little Italy,” you’ll definitely be tempted to end your journey. With more than 100 restaurants and bakeries packed into just less than 2 square km, you don’t have to go far to find some of the best Italian food in the U.S. Indulge in 18th-century chocolate (don’t worry, it wasn’t actually made back then), choose from 20 completely necessary types of cannoli at a single pastry shop and kick back with an espresso or gelato (or both—no judgments!) on Hanover Street. Then get back to your Boston accommodation before the caffeine wears off—you’ll need a nap!
Flights to Boston land at Logan International Airport (BOS), just 4 km from the city centre, so getting to Boston hotels is even easier than sniffing out pizza in the North End. The Silver Line route will connect you to the Red Line metro rail (hint: locals call it “The T”), which runs to the main commuter train station and connects to several other T lines. Plus, it’s free from the airport! If you prefer to trade cash for convenience, taxis and car hires are excellent options. Friendly tip: Pony up and pay for parking downtown, or you’ll be spending your holiday getting more familiar with the side streets than the main attractions!
Accommodation in Boston lets you experience the city’s year-round charm, from summer festivals to a winter wonderland of snow-covered trees and ice skating on Boston Common. On New Year’s Eve, the First Night Celebration lights up Boston Harbor with a midnight countdown and fireworks. Music and beer festivals take over in the summer, as residents and travellers alike toast the warm weather with cool beverages and hot tunes.
