You will not want to miss the chance to set foot in Fenway Park, home to the Boston Red Sox since 1912. We’d recommend trying to catch a game of America’s favorite past time, whether it’s to admire the skill of the game, the ballpark’s beautiful original architecture or even if it is just to see the 37-foot-tall left field wall, known as the “Green Monster”.
The Freedom Trail
Stretching across 2 ½ miles, this self-guided tour is one for those looking to scrub up on their American History. The tour includes the city’s most historical sites, including Paul Revere’s House and the Boston Common.
Starting off the Freedom Trail, you’ll get a chance to take in the beauty of the Boston Common. As the US's oldest city park, it’s full of history, from its beginning as a cow pasture in the mid-1600s, to then becoming a British camp. Picnics in the park in the middle of summer with the family are ones to be loved, as well as the chance to go ice-skating on Frog Pond in the peak of the winter months. It’s the perfect way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life!
Paul Revere’s House
Another one for our history lovers. This historical landmark is home to where Paul Revere set of on his famous late night journey to warn colonists that, as the famous phrase goes – “The British are coming! The British are coming!” The house also gives a glimpse into life in the late 1700s, allowing you to admire the building’s original furnishings from the period the famous Revere silver, including a 900-pound bell in the back yard.
Boston Public Garden
Established in 1837, the Boston Public Park is America’s first public botanical garden. The beauty of the park really shines through with the variety and beautiful exotic trees and blooming flowers.
