When you think of the USA, you often think of New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Florida, and Las Vegas. But the US is a giant country, with hundreds of cities that are just as worth exploring as these ones, with just as much to offer. Take Boston for example, which has everything you need to have the ultimate history, culture, sports and shopping break away.
It’s a city that evokes images of revolution and transformation, once dubbed the Athens of America thanks to its ever-increasing art culture. Indeed, Boston has an unprecedented appreciation of fine paintings and classical music, but it isn’t an elitist artistic culture – countless museums, libraries, and orchestras have been set up across the city, making the arts accessible for everyone.
There’s the chance to take the Freedom Trail around town, which is 2.5 miles long and covers 16 attractions, each one marking a significant point in US history. Or cheer on the Red Six at Fenway Park, and stroll through the grounds of the famous Harvard University.
