Things to do in Boston

Boston, the capital of New England and a cultural center of the nation. There are so many things to do in Boston that it would be impossible to do them all. This guide will give you some ideas of how to spend your time while visiting our city.


Visit the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum is located on Boston's waterfront and features replicas of the ships and other artifacts from the time period. The museum is open year round, but you can visit during peak season from June through October when there are many events happening at this attraction. The museum has a number of exhibits that explain how colonists were forced to pay taxes on tea they did not want or need at all times; they also discuss how they planned their protest against England's Parliament by throwing 342 chests (47 tons) of tea into Boston Harbor in 1773. The exhibits also include original documents such as court rulings about smuggling or refusing to pay taxes on imported goods like tea. The museum offers guided tours throughout its three floors so visitors can learn more about these historical events while exploring their personal connection with them through interactive stations where they have the chance to try out activities like "tasting" different types of tea leaves or making crafts using materials found within each area featured within its halls!

Visit Faneuil Hall. This is the meeting hall where the city's leaders have met since the 17th century, and it still serves as such today. Located in Downtown Boston, Faneuil Hall Marketplace is a shopping center that includes restaurants and stores selling everything from souvenirs to apparel. In addition to its

marketplace status, this historic building also houses a museum dedicated to showcasing local history through interactive exhibits and artifacts.


Cheer on the Celtics or Red Sox. If you're a sports fan, Boston is a great place to visit. The Celtics play basketball at the TD Garden and baseball at Fenway Park, both of which are part of MLB's American League East division. The Red Sox were actually founded in 1901 by Henry Louis "Hank" Aaron (yes, that Hank Aaron), making them one of the oldest teams still playing today! Both teams' history is long and storied: they've won 10 World Series titles together since 1918; they've won five championships each since 2004; they've been perennial contenders even during down years—they haven't missed an playoff berth since 1986! And it doesn't end there either: both have had several players inducted into Baseball Hall Of Fame over their careers; both have had multiple managers who led teams deep into postseason play...

Take a tour of Fenway Park. If you've ever wanted to take a tour of Fenway Park, now is your chance. The Red Sox have recently opened up their doors for visitors and fans alike to explore this iconic landmark. The stadium was built in 1912, but it was not until the completion of its current grandstand in 1934 that Fenway hosted its first game between the Red Sox and Yankees (then known as Highlanders). Today, there are 12 different levels that make up this baseball mecca—and they're all available for you to see! Tickets can be purchased online or at any local ticket agency such as Ticketmaster or Get Me In! You'll want to keep in mind that these tours sell out quickly so make sure you purchase yours early on before they sell out completely.

Eat clam chowder at The Union Oyster House, the nation's oldest restaurant. If you're a fan of clam chowder, you'll love The Union Oyster House. The restaurant was founded in 1826 and is located in a historic building on Union Street (which was once home to one of Boston's most famous taverns). In fact, it was here that Samuel Adams met Benjamin Franklin—and many other luminaries have been known to visit over the years as well. The Union Oyster House serves traditional New England cuisine including daily fish specials, steamed mussels and clams served with fries or salad; lobster rolls; homemade ice cream; roast turkey dinners; prime rib sandwiches; chicken pot pie dinners...the list goes on!

Visit the Boston Public Library. The Boston Public Library is a beautiful building that has many interesting exhibits, including a cafe and free wifi. It also has an excellent children's section, local history section, genealogy section, and more!

But don't stop there—you can also check out their museum of the city (also called "The Museum"), which has lots of interactive displays about Boston history. If you're feeling brave (or just have time), go downstairs into the basement where there are even more exhibits related to local industries like fishing or shipbuilding.

Drink a pint at the world's longest operating tavern, The Bell in Hand Tavern. If you're looking for a true Boston experience, look no further than The Bell in Hand Tavern. Established in 1795, the tavern is the oldest operating tavern in America and offers tours of its interior every day of the week. Located on Union Street just outside downtown Boston, it's easy to get to from all over town via public transportation or car. The Bell in Hand serves up hearty food such as corned beef hash and shepherd's pie alongside an excellent selection of beer (including local craft brews) and wine so that visitors can enjoy their meals while relaxing with friends or family members with whom they may have never met before coming here!

Walk the Freedom Trail and learn about Paul Revere, Sam Adams and other key figures in American history. The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile path through downtown Boston that's marked by red bricks. You can take the self-guided tour, or you can just hop on the T and get off at any stop along the way—it's your choice! But no matter where you start, be sure to walk with an open mind and try not to judge anyone else for their opinions about history (unless they're talking about Paul Revere). After all, there isn't much room for pride in this town: we've all got our own stories here.


Take a Stroll Through Beacon Hill.

Beacon Hill is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Boston, and it's full of historic buildings. It's home to many restaurants and bars, as well as a variety of culture-rich attractions like the Museum of Fine Arts and the Boston Public Library. If you're looking for something more active than walking around or shopping on Newbury Street (or if you just want to get out of your hotel room), take a stroll through Beacon Hill!


See a show at Emerson Majestic Theatre.

Emerson Majestic Theatre is a great place to see a show. It's located in the heart of Boston, so you can easily get there by public transportation or car. If you're traveling by car, park at one of the surrounding garages and walk over to the theater!


Boston is a city full of history and beauty. Whether you want to explore the city on foot or take in a game at Fenway Park, there are plenty of things to do in Boston.
