If a little sightseeing is what you're looking for on your Boston vacations, you'll find plenty of sights to see in old Beantown, where you can get a taste of sweet liberty with an official or self-guided tour of the landmarks that line Freedom Trail. Begin your walk at the Bunker Hill Monument and wind your way through cobblestone streets and across the Charles River past Old North Church, Paul Revere’s House, Faneuil Hall, and stand on the sites of momentous moments in American history. End your stroll at Boston Common for a peaceful walk in the park or a joyous outdoor concert. This is what vacations in Boston are all about.
Drawn to the sea? Go island hopping around the Boston Harbor Islands for stunning views of the city skyline and the open water. And if you want to dive deeper, spend an afternoon at New England Aquarium learning about what lurks beneath the surface of the Atlantic and end the day with a sunset sail around the historic harbor on a traditional tall ship. Like the colonists before you, you may get the urge to dump tea into the cool Atlantic waters. Instead, we recommend sipping the delicate brew nearby at The Langham Boston, housed in the former Federal Reserve Bank.
Boston gets into the holiday spirit throughout the year with major citywide celebrations. St. Patrick's Day lines the streets in South Boston for the Boston St. Patrick's Day parade.

You'll be able to see Boston's creative side during the city's twice-a-year ArtWeek Boston, an interactive arts festival with over 125 performances and visual art events.
