1. Freedom Trail

The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile stretch hosting 16 sites pertaining to the Revolutionary War. You could take a costumed guided tour or, more appealingly, come see us at the reception desk and we will provide you with a map to follow.

2.The South End

The food and retail shops are some of the best in the city. Be sure to visit Flour Bakery and try their ever popular sticky buns and B&G Oyster, which does shellfish right!

3.The ICA

Opened in December 2006, the Institute of Contemporary Art in South Boston is arguably more interesting for its architecture then its art. The lure of the ICA has sparked a blossom in The Four Points Area, if you are hankering for some Italian while there try Sportello.

4.Back Bay

To take in some of the best shopping and site seeing in the city visit historic Back Bay. The Lenox Hotel is a must see with its Historic Charm and delicious restaurants.

5.The Red Sox Fan

If you can't get tickets to a game you can still pay to get a tour of the park and grab a beer at the Bleacher Bar.

6.Black History Trail

Traces the events central to the substantial African American population that lived in Boston in the 19th century.

7.Harvard Yard

Home to the infamous Harvard Yard, Harvard University and MIT if you are feeling collegiate and don't miss the Peabody Museum.

8.Charles River Esplanade

Along the Boston side of the Charles River, which separates the city from Cambridge, is a roughly three-mile leafy path known as the Esplanade. You'll pass playgrounds and marshes and places to rent sailboats and grab a cup of lemonade.

9. The Boston Public Library

While it might feel overly academic to visit a library on vacation a trip to the BPL boasts some original works by John Singer Sargent and an Italian Renaissance-inspired interior courtyard.

10. John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum

Perfect for the history buff. Your visit starts with a short film and then leaves you on your own to explore a series of fascinating exhibits, including the Kennedy-Nixon debate, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the space program, 1960s campaign paraphernalia and displays about Jacqueline and other Kennedy family members.
