Few cities in the U.S. have as rich a history as Boston. The city is both beautiful and beloved; both in Boston and in neighboring Cambridge, located just across the Charles River, stand some of the country’s most impressive buildings, both modern and heritage.
Among these structures is housed an impressive array of art that reflects that architecture, including at the Museum of Fine Arts, the Institute of Contemporary Art, the Boston Sculptors Gallery and more. Looking for outdoor beauty? Visitors can stroll through Boston’s Emerald Necklace, a string of nine parks spread over 1,100 acres which includes Boston Common, the oldest public park in the U.S.
Of course Boston is a ravenous sports town as well. Baseball fans flock to the see the Red Sox at Fenway Park, the oldest stadium in Major League Baseball, and the iconic Big Green Monster. Both the Celtics of the NBA and the Bruins of the National Hockey League play out of TD Garden, while Gillette Stadium in nearby Foxboro is home to the New England Patriots.
All of which is to say nothing of the city’s vibrant dining and drinks scene. Home of the original Cheers, there are plenty of pubs at which to raise a pint, and nearly as many top-end eateries and nightclubs. And as one of America’s original college towns, nightlife in Boston is never boring.
