Boston is the city to visit if you are interested in exploring rich local and international culture and arts, shopping in unique and upmarket shops, dining in gorgeous eateries, escaping into naturally beautiful parks and experiencing the home game atmosphere of the Red Sox.

The Freedom Trail will allow you to absorb Boston’s local history and wander the streets steeped in tradition by following the red bricks leading you to historical and influential landmarks such as Faneuil Hall and the old State House.
Boston’s different districts each have an abundance of attractions to explore and enjoy.
