Join Where as we explore the top 5 attractions in the city of Boston.
The Museum of Fine Arts Boston opened on July 4, 1876, marking the nation’s centennial with a respectable collection of fifty-six-hundred works of art. Fast-forward to present day, and the local institution has become a titan on the international art scene, welcoming more than a million visitors every year to see its collection of 450,000 pieces.
Boston’s Back Bay is the destination for high-fashion heavyweights. Newbury Street, which runs through the heart of the neighborhood, is home to Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and many more international and boutique retailers. You can easily spend a day eating and shopping your way through this luxurious district.
At the New England Aquarium, explore the creatures of the world’s waters, from the Amazon rainforest to Pacific reefs and beyond. A can’t-miss attraction is the Giant Ocean Tank, a Caribbean coral reef environment boasting two-thousand sea creatures in 200,000 gallons of water. Don’t miss the shark- and ray-touch tank and the sea lion and seal center.
Baseball’s Fenway Park has been entertaining Red Sox fans since opening in 1912. The oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball is home to the iconic Green Monster, a scoreboard still operated by hand. The park is open year-round for tours, but the best experience is to get a ticket and watch a game. This is classic Boston!
The one thing you can’t miss in the city is Boston’s Freedom Trail. This two-and-a-half-mile, red-painted and bricked path connects 16 historic sites that tell the story of the American Revolution, from the Colonial period to the War of 1812. You can walk the trail yourself or take a tour from a guide portraying one of the city’s famous figures.
