Where to stay in Boston
This 2.5-mile walking trail is an enjoyable way to look into Boston’s famous history, which dates back to the Revolutionary War. The trail takes visitors to 10 of the city’s most historical landmarks, including Boston Common, King's Chapel Burying Ground, the Site of the Boston Massacre and Bunker Hill Monument. It also makes its way to other sites, including churches, meetinghouses, museums and historical ships. This is the best way to step back into time and learn about the American Revolution and Boston’s important role in it. Beacon Hill
One of the city’s most beautiful neighbourhoods, Beacon Hill is also one of Boston’s most historical areas and features gas-lit street lamps and red brick townhouses. It is situated next to the riverfront of the Charles River Esplanade on the Shawmut Peninsula and is home to the Museum of African American History, the Massachusetts State House, the Harrison Gray Otis House and the upscale Liberty Hotel. John Hancock Tower
Standing at nearly 241 meters, John Hancock Tower is the tallest building in Boston. The modern glass structure was designed by architect Henry N Cobb and was a huge achievement in minimalist architecture when completed in 1976. It was built with the largest glass panes that could be found and has a parallelogram shape, making the corners look extra sharp. Its large observation deck offers spectacular views of the city, but unfortunately it was closed to the public after the September 11, 2001 events. It is now available to be rented out for special events. Some rooms at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel face this iconic structure. Eating and drinking and shopping nearbyBoston’s diversity means that it is home to a wide range of restaurants that serve a plethora of ethnic cuisine, though the best restaurants are found in hotels such as the Mandarin Oriental Boston and the Four Seasons Hotel. There is no shortage of drinking venues in Boston, with bars catering to students, businesspeople, sports fans and romantics found all over the city.Public transportBoston’s public transportation system, consisting of subways, trams and buses, is quite extensive and reaches all neighbourhoods in the city. A CharlieCard is highly recommended as it offers discount rates and free transfers. The water shuttle from Long Wharf to Navy Yard is also popular among visitors, while the commuter rail is used predominantly for travelling outside of the city.
