About Boston

Boston is a famous historical and cultural city on America's east coast. To learn more about America's history, follow the red brick road of the Freedom Trail from one historical point of interest to the next, making stops at the Paul Revere House and notable buildings. While in Boston, you can also tour the campuses of world-famous universities, such as Harvard and MIT. Cheer for your favorite team at Fenway Park or spend the afternoon lolling about in the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere of the harbor area or one of the many green city parks. Local foods like lobster and clam chowder are two dishes that should absolutely not be missed while in Boston.
