Its plethora of museums, historical sights, live performances, and a lively dining and shopping scene make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country.Boston is one of the few old American cities that has managed to preserve a respectable chunk of its history, with buildings that pre-date the republic dotted across the city.

Boston Travel Tips & Reviews

Featured Review:

Mar 25, 2016

Completely out of the way, but we had to pick up the final member of our road trip crew here. Take a walking tour, or get lost in the narrow streets of Cobble Hill for more of that classic New England charm.
