Once you enter Boston through the Boston Logan airport, you slowly come to realize that Boston is a unique place in itself. Why you ask? Well for one thing, it is one of the oldest cities of the United States of America and secondly, it is the place where the Freedom movement actually began. It is a great place for all of the history buffs out there as well as an amusement-filled vacation for those who want to have loads of fun during their Boston trip. There are a lot of places to see and explore in Boston, and surely you would not like to miss some of the key places that should be visited by every Boston visitor.
The Freedom Trail
Many people think it is just for the history geeks out there, but no, this is not the case. The freedom trail is very interesting and, obviously,there is a lot of history attached to it, which makes this place an enigma as well as a must visit. You can visit a lot of important burial grounds as well as the Old South meeting house and the Old StateHouse, both of whichare renowned for their architecture.
Yes, Boston has two of the most prestigious universities of the world- MIT and Harvard University. While you are in Boston, a visit to the Harvard square as well as the arts museum is bound to be informative as well as refreshing. If you like to engage in people watching then this is the place for you as you can observe a lot of tourists and college students as well as native Bostonians. And to top it all off, you have the opportunity to taste some of the yummiest ice cream here.
The Faneuil Hall
If you are a shopaholic then Faneuil Hall is the place for you to be. Although this building has historical significance and there is even a museum at the topmost storey, it also houses a market place at its ground level. Here you can look for a plethora of gifts or souvenir items and you are bound to get them at a very reasonable price. Many shops here are even open for bargaining. So go out and shop to your heart’s content.
Home of the Boston RedSox
If you are a lover of sports, you are bound to know which place I am referring to here. It is Fenway Park which is also, obviously, the home of the Boston Red Sox. It is pretty much referred to as America’s favourite ball park. Even if you are not a sports lover, you can take the time to visit so you can experience the feel and vibe of the park. The interesting thing is that the park has hardly changed its looks since the time when it was first inaugurated.
So if you are in the US and planning a visit, do pay a visit to Boston. It will be a one of a kind experience with traditionalism meeting the modern.
