Package holidays to Boston

City Information

Overview
Boston is one of the world’s great walking cities, offering travellers hundreds of shops, hotels, museums, restaurants, live performances and sports attractions. Logan International Airport is very close to downtown, the public transit is excellent and affordable and the city is filled with great parks on the harbour, the river and throughout its historic neighbourhoods and famous Boston attractions. From Harvard University to MIT, Boston is home to more colleges than anywhere else in the world and travellers will enjoy the atmosphere created by a quarter-million college students. Vibrant year-round, Boston offers festivals for every season. Daytrips to Cape Cod, Cape Ann, Concord, or anywhere in New England are easy to arrange for a Boston holiday. There is direct nonstop air service to Boston from 31 international airports and 71 USA airports and high speed rail service several times daily to New York City, Washington DC & Philadelphia. National Parks include the Boston Harbor Islands, the Freedom Trail & Cape Cod National Seashore.

Things to Do

Many speak of the new Boston. The completion of the Big Dig, vast improvements to the city’s infrastructure and the resulting Rose Kennedy Greenway reveal an innovative 21st-century destination that hasn’t lost any of its patented charm. Boston is known the world over for its universities and research hospitals, institutions, and events - Harvard, MIT, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Boston Red Sox, Museum of Fine Arts, Head of the Charles Regatta, the Boston Marathon, and Harborfest to name a few - yet Boston’s biggest draw is the beauty of the city itself: its livable and walkable scale, its classic and modern architecture, its parks and green spaces, which cover nearly half of the city’s surface. Visitors love to walk the shaded paths of the Charles River Esplanade, Boston Common and the Public Garden, follow the Freedom Trail and explore miles of HarborWalk lined with cafes, museums, hotels, and restaurants. In the summer, Boston’s waterfront location keeps the city cooler than most northeast cities. Whether its a walk along the HarborWalk, a water taxi ride from Logan International Airport, a sailing, cruising or whale watch expedition, locals know that the best way to experience Boston is on the water or near the water’s edge.

Dining

While at least two dozen notable restaurants have opened in the last two years keeping Boston’s dining scene ever fresh and vibrant, Boston is also home to America’s oldest restaurant, the Union Oyster House. New Englanders have long prided themselves on celebrating the seasons and when it comes to serving local, farm fresh products and fine regional cuisine, Boston is right on trend with the world’s top dining cities. Due to the city’s high immigrant and student populations, there is an unusual interplay of international cuisines. From the Armenian influence in nearby Watertown to the distinct Italian heritage of the North End, Boston has a very interesting and ever-evolving culinary scene. Shedding Boston’s buttoned-up reputation, many restaurants now offer late night menus and creative cocktail menus. Above all, visitors to Boston crave seafood. From the fresh catch of the day to lobster, oysters, scallops, sushi, sashimi, ceviche to New England’s famous clam chowder, nearly any place you dine will have at least three or four seafood options. Oyster bars, seafood shacks, clam bakes, waterfront dining – Boston has it all without fussiness or formality.

Shopping
Boston is a world-class shopping destination that many feel surpasses New York in overall quality. All the international and luxury brands are here, bolstered by Boston’s unique shopping districts: Newbury Street in the Back Bay, Charles Street in Beacon Hill, and Faneuil Hall Marketplace near the waterfront. Dozens of independently-owned boutiques line the streets of Boston’s fashionable South End, where the SoWa Sunday market, New England's largest outdoor market, draws visitors every Sunday (May through October) with its unique wares. Visitors love the convenience of being able to walk from shop to shop and from the shops to their hotel. Shoppers appreciate the more comfortable, smaller scale of the city, not to mention that there’s no sales tax on clothing under $175 US. In the Back Bay, Copley Place and The Shops at the Prudential Center are connected by sky bridge, offering a year-round indoor shopping experience that’s not weather dependent. New developments along Boston harbor, such as the opening of the newly-relocated Louis Boston and art galleries, have made shopping a priority on the waterfront. Just opposite the Charles River, CambridgeSide Galleria is home to popular brands like Abercrombie & Fitch as well as great bargains on computers and electronics. South of Boston, Wrentham Village Premium Outlets attracts serious shoppers who know to bring an extra piece of empty luggage and take advantage of coach service to and from Boston hotels.
