Hometown Guide to Boston by Fly.com's Sean Cahill.
One of America’s oldest cities, sophisticated Boston is home to some its most historically significant sites. Boston tourism officials note that most visitors to Beantown include the Boston Common, Boston Tea Party and Boston Massacre sites in their itineraries. But this quintessential college town – which is said to have more colleges than any other American city – is also notoriously proud of its home sporting teams: the Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins. Every year since 1897, the city has also hosted the world’s oldest and most prestigious annual marathon, the Boston Marathon.
The site of the first Boston Market restaurant in the U.S., Boston has recently emerged from its humbler roots to become a leading culinary destination for its many acclaimed restaurants. This well-read city is also one of just a handful in the U.S. to still support two local newspapers, the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald.
Fenway Park: This venerable institution has been energizing
fans of the Red Sox since 1912. Its intimate setting makes fans feel
like they are part of the game.
Cheers Boston: Many visitors make a beeline for Cheers Boston (formerly the Bull & Finch), which famously inspired the TV show “Cheers.” Located in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood, it offers souvenirs galore and pub food.
Boston’s Museum of Science: Features dozens of displays and exhibits, which are continually updated to ensure a new experience on every visit. Its five-story IMAX dome screen shows many new films.
Boston Pops: The world-famous orchestra features top musicians. The orchestra is so influential that household-name performers frequently agree to perform with it.
