Boston, Massachusetts, is one of the most exciting, cultural, and historic cities to visit in the United States. Whatever you like to do on vacation; you will most likely find it in Boston. It is a place where the history of this nation merges gently with today’s modernization to leave one with an experience that is found in very few places in the world.
Art lovers can sink themselves in a paradise of their own as they visit any of Fort Point Arts, Harvard Art Museum and the myriad other Boston art galleries to name a few. There are several museums in the city, including the USS Constitution Museum where you can get a taste of naval history and the National Heritage Museum where you can meet the traditions and culture in American history.
Anyone with a sweet tooth will delight in a Boston Chocolate Tour. Choose from three tours, each of which take place at different times on Saturdays. Go on one tour or go on all, but one thing is for sure: you’ll get your sweet tooth satisfaction of a lifetime.
If you love visiting with the critters of the sea, check out the Giant Ocean Tank at the New England Aquarium. A quick swing from the aquarium will take you to the 90 minute Spirits of Charlestown walk where you can relive history and walk a part of the Freedom Trail. (you might walk encounter a series of paranormal activities!) Your guide on the walk is an actual spirit medium and ghost hunter- no need to fear if you do encounter anything that goes bump in the night!
Nature lovers, Boston has a very special place just for you. The Walden Pond Reservation is located about twenty miles from Boston and boasts a 2,680 acre wooded area to explore.
