Four Must-See Boston Attractions

When you think of Massachusetts, specifically Boston, does your mind begin to spin with the massive amount of historic sites and attractions to see? Everywhere you look in Boston, there is a historic marker, building, or monument that represents a piece of our country’s history.  Most Boston visitors would love to have the time to see everything, but that is not always possible. The following is a list of the four must-see Boston attractions: 

Boston Public Garden

The Boston Public Garden is America’s first public garden; combined with Boston Common, it is also the largest park in Boston. Made up of willow trees, formal gardens, grass areas, and a pond, this garden was established in 1837 and continues to impress everyone. There are many permanent garden areas filled with roses and flowers shrubs. Other flower beds are changed out seasonally. When the weather is warmer, tourists enjoy riding on the famous swan boats and looking for the swans that swim around the pond. So stay at the nearby Lenox Hotel Boston and enjoy this park all year long. 

North End

The oldest neighborhood in Boston is the North End, which dates back to the 1630’s when Boston was first settled. The first church in Boston was established here, and historical figures such as Paul Revere resided in the North End. There are many historical sites to see such as Bunker Hill and Paul Revere’s house. The North End is known not only for its history, but for its primarily Italian American population. Hands down, the North End is the best area of town to find authentic Italian food, food that keeps visitors coming back again and again.

Fenway Park

There is a plethora of history in Boston, both in our country’s history and our sports history. Fenway Park, home to the Boston Red Sox, is the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball and dates back to 1912. Although many changes have been made through the years, such as the addition of the green monster, the original brick structure is still the same. Seats have been added and replaced over time, but there is still a small section of the original seats that guests come from all over to see and sit in. Knowledgeable guides who explain the fascinating history of the ballpark lead daily tours. Whether you are a baseball fan or not, Fenway is one Boston attraction you will not want to miss

Freedom Trail

There is no better way to see several historic sites then to walk the Freedom Trail. This two and half mile walk weaves you through neighborhoods, where you can explore 16 historic sites such as the Boston Massacre and the Old South Meeting House. When you reach the end of the trail, you will arrive at the Bunker Hill Monument, site of the American Revolutionary War Battle of Bunker Hill. The Freedom Trail is a fun way to explore our country’s history.
