Visit Boston - a friendly, approachable city with a terrific blend of old and new.

A city of many "firsts", Boston is at once historic and modern, with plenty of activities and events to keep you busy. For a new visitor, the first order of business is to explore the Freedom Trail, a 2 1/2 mile long red brick and painted foot path, which leads the visitor through many of the historical, cultural, and gastronomical highlights of the city. Boston can be explored by hop on/hop off trolleys, duck tours, or by foot. Bring comfortable walking shoes, because meandering is what it's all about!

Take the T ! Boston is well-known for it's easily accessible MBTA system, an inexpensive alternative to getting to and around town.

 

There are several choices for getting to the city, which include train, subway, and driving. If you choose the latter, bring your GPS and your patience.
