The Best of Boston Culture

Be sure to walk the Freedom Trail, which follows the path Paul Revere rode during the American Revolution. Rent a boat on the harbor or the Charles River, or try a swan boat in the Boston Public Garden. Head to Copley Square to see the finish line of the Boston Marathon or take the T to Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox. Go beyond the old-world architecture of Beacon Hill and the Back Bay to see a range of enclaves. And make sure to cross the river to the erudite but hip neighboring city of Cambridge. Wherever you go, don’t forget to try a bowl of clam chowder and a slice of Boston cream pie.
