Few cities in the U.S. have a richer history than Boston
Boston’s history is intertwined with the history of the United States. Visitors looking to learn more about the American Revolution will find the Freedom Trail a good place to start. Marked by a trail of red bricks embedded in the pavement, the trail leads visitors on a walking tour of many of the city’s most venerated sites, several of which are preserved by the Boston National Historical Park. Step into Old North Church, where lanterns in the steeple were used to warn of advancing soldiers, or visit Old South Meeting House where the Boston Tea Party began. Book Boston car rentals to make the trip from Boston to Lexington and Concord to see the sites of the first battles of the war. Faneuil Hall is another stop on the Freedom Trail, while Quincy Market, a historic marketplace building beside Faneuil Hall, is filled with food stalls, souvenir vendors, and even street performers.
Find Boston hotels near the best cultural attractions
Boston vacation-goers won’t want to miss the gorgeous Boston Public Garden, the world-famous Museum of Fine Arts, or the impressive New England Aquarium.
