About The Area

Built on the revolutionary ideas of America's founding fathers (Boston counts John Adams and Benjamin Franklin as its own), this historic city continues to revolutionize pathways in arts, medicine, education and politics. Don’t forget to visit the numerous historic attractions, like the Freedom Trail and Boston Tea Party Ships.

The Boston nightlife is something that must be experienced. Having earned the title of America's Drunkest City (according to The Daily Beast), you can visit clubs and bars like Frost Ice Bar, Jillian’s, and Stage America’s Vaudeville Nightclub for an exciting evening of drinking and dancing.

Family fun includes a trip to the New England Aquarium to see seals, sharks, and penguins, dinosaurs at the Museum of Science, or the famous swan boats and “Make Way for Ducklings” statues in the Boston Public Gardens. Sports fans should be sure to catch a baseball game at Fenway Park, and basketball at TD Gardens.
