As one of the largest metropolitan areas in New England, Boston hosts more than 16.3 million visitors each year, making it one of the top tourist locations in the United States. And why not? This city has something for everyone, from world-famous Harvard and Cambridge universities and professional sports to fine arts and scrumptious seafood. It’s called “sacred cod" for a reason! And did we mention the history? Freedom Trail brings you to 16 historic sites, and these are just the tip of the revolutionary iceberg. Boston has been an important cultural, political, and artistic city for centuries.
Trying to do it all is enough to make your head spin. Instead, why not get to know this incredible city like a local? Slow down, settle in, and get to know your (temporary) neighbors at one of our Boston vacation rentals.
Ever wanted to follow in the footsteps of great American heroes? Now’s your chance. Follow Paul Revere’s ride through the city, or gaze up at Benjamin Franklin’s statue. Looking for less-visited historic sites? Head north of Boston proper to Salem and visit the House of Seven Gables (the inspiration for Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel of the same name) or the Salem Witch Museum. Perhaps the homey accommodations at Extended Stay America - Boston - Peabody nearby will inspire your own masterpiece—or at the very least, a great Instagram post.
Of course, you could stay in South End like the locals who wake up to sunrises on Old Harbor and local ball games at Joe Moakley Park. In a city with sports fans that are this dedicated, even Little League gets the adrenaline pumping, so hang your baseball cap at a Charming 2BR in South End by Sonder.
Whatever brings you to Boston, savings and home-like amenities that include a kitchen and separate living room will bring you back again and again. Book our vacation rentals in Boston today and get the Travelocity price guarantee!
