My Favorite Sites in Boston for a Visitor

Updated on April 9, 2018

About Boston:

Boston, or Beantown, is the capital and biggest city in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The city, although small in size as it only covers 48 square miles, has an estimated estimated population of 700K. This also makes it the most populous city in New England. Unique in its character and neighborhood charm, it is an excellent place for you to visit any time of year.

Boston Common

Boston Common is like Boston's Central Park but much smaller and way more historic. It is a central public park and gathering space in downtown. It is sometimes mistakenly called the Boston Commons but it not plural. Founded in 1634, it is the oldest park in the United States and original place where citizens would feed their livestock or gather for public events and addresses - the same as today. If you're here in the summer enjoy the Frog Pong swimming area for little kids of the merry-go-round, if you're here in the winter go ice skating, there is something always going on.

Freedom Trail

The Freedom Trail is a two and a half mile historical walking path around the City of Boston downtown marked by a red-lined route that will take you to 16 historically significant locations. You wills see unique neighborhoods, famous grades, and historic locations like the Old North Church and Old State House.

The North End

The North End is an hold Italian neighborhood in Boston. Take a walk down Handover St. to sample the amazing shops and dine on authentic wines and dishes prepared locally by outstanding chefs. It is the city's oldest neighborhood community originally founded in the 1630's. The old charm and narrow streets will make you feel like you're in Europe.

Fenway Park

Let's Go Red Sox! Fenway Park is a historic baseball park that serves as the home to the Boston Red Sox and is often called the most loved ballpark in America. The address is 4 Yawkey Way (named after the former owner) it is located near Kenmore Square and the historic citgo sign. Get a ticket to a game, even if standing room, grab a hot dog and join the rowdy fans in the bleachers for a great afternoon.

Back Bay

Back Bay is a beautiful neighborhood in the center of Boston. It is famous for its rows of Victorian (and expensive) brownstone homes and thought of as an outstanding examples of 19th-century urban design. It is a great place to see beautiful buildings, eat, take a relaxing walk around the Public Garden, and shop on Newbury Street.
