Places to see
Just like most American cities, Boston has a huge amount to offer, and as the city grows more attractions and adventures appear across it. The South End of Boston is a new and exciting neighbourhood that has changed along with the city. What used to be a poorer area and refuge for the gay community has flourished into one of the city's most attractive neighbourhoods, whilst still holding onto its routes. Now on a visit to the South End you will be able to enjoy some of the best restaurants and boutiques in the city. Toro restaurant is a great spot to enjoy some fine dining. It has received praise from the likes of Boston magazine and the New York Times for its good service and great food.
If you feel like hitting the shops then look no further. Sault New England is a men's clothing shop hot on the heels of the latest style, whilst Patch NYC has some of the prettiest home décor and jewellery on the market. Boston plays host to one of the biggest sporting brands in the world. The Boston Red Sox host tours at their local stadium Fenway Park, and provide a great opportunity to pick up a souvenir on your way around.
The Institute of Contemporary Art is well worth a visit. The building sits on the Boston harbour water, and is as impressive from outside as it is in. The Institute sticks out over the water and lights up beautifully in the evenings. Of course, with one of the world's best universities around the corner it's hardly surprising the city's architecture is so impressive. Once you have a taste for the academic why not travel to the University grounds. On Harvard's campus you'll be able to walk through the leafy open areas amongst some of America's finest academics.
Boston is not one of the first tourist destinations in America to spring to mind, but those who have travelled there will wax lyrical about the number of attractions to the city. A trip to Boston will give you all kinds of opportunities on your holiday that other cities can't offer.
