Why Boston?

Few American cities offer the number of historic sites that you'll find in Boston. This was the Cradle of Liberty, the home of Paul Revere's midnight ride, of the Old North Church, the Boston Tea Party and the Quincy Market. It's difficult to navigate the city without seeing a reminder of the city's important past.

Visitors of all ages can find something fun to do in Boston. Some of the more popular Boston attractions include Faneuil Hall Marketplace; Cambridge and Harvard University; Boston Common and the swans who live there; Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox; and the Boston tea party ships & museum.

Day trips from Boston can be just as exciting and interesting as the city. No trip to "Bean Town" would be complete without seeing at least a few of the sights just outside of the city limits. Boston day trips include seeing Lexington and Concord, where the first shots of the American Revolutionary War were fired; the Plimoth Plantation, a living history museum about what life was like for those first European settlers, and the wonderful beaches, dunes, art galleries and restaurants that make up Cape Cod.

If you've never visited Boston or if you've been there a dozen or more times, the city always offers something new, fun and exciting to explore.
