6 Days/5 Nights – Gateway: Boston

1 & 2: Arrive Boston, MA

Famous for everything from the Red Sox and Paul Revere to Cheers and clam “chowdah,” Boston is a popular destination for so many reasons. Part history lesson, part modern metropolis, the Hub offers attractions to suit every taste and interest. Hop on the Freedom Trail, a well-preserved pedestrian path that weaves in and out of historic neighborhoods. Between landmarks, you can shop the fabulous stores on Newbury Street, have a delicious authentic Italian meal in the North End or browse the antique shops of Beacon Hill. The more culturally inclined will not want to miss the city’s world-class museums, theater and music venues. Family friendly to the core, Boston boasts a renowned aquarium, children’s museum and science museum, making it a great getaway for all.
