Arrival in Boston
After checking into your centrally located hotel, you can explore this vibrant university city of Boston at your own pace. Stroll through the city centre and grab a bite to eat at one of the restaurants in the Beacon Hill neighbourhood. You can easily discover the city on foot because the main sights are in the centre and all conveniently within walking distance.
Start today with a leisurely breakfast and then go head off to meet your guide at the starting point of the Freedom Trail walk. Your guide will be in costume and appear to have come from the 18th century, they’ll tell very vividly about his courageous ancestors. You’ll be transported back to the time of heroism as you pass the sights of the Freedom Trail, learning how the “Fathers of Liberty” fought to eventually sign the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia. Have a drink in one of the taverns where the walk ends to let all the stories sink in.
The rest of the day is then up to you. Visit Faneuil Hall and stroll past the colourful shops and stalls then head to Quincy Market’s food court where the locals also like to come. For a picnic or relaxing moment, head to the Public Garden, one of the most beautiful parks in the city or enjoy the harbour from one of the restaurant terraces overlooking the water. You can also book boat trips here, from a large tour boat to a super-fast speedboat or a ‘duck boat’ that first drives through the city and then plunges into the water (and stays afloat).
Today you’ll travel on to your next destination, unless you decide to stay another day to visit Harvard University, for example, where you can get a free tour (you pay tip only) of the university complex from a student. Otherwise you can travel further south to New York by train, or pick up a rental car and head to Niagara Falls. If your trip ends here, make your own way to the airport for your flight back home.
