The city of Boston has a long history after being founded in 1630. It played an integral role in the American Revolution and is steeped in history and home to the prestigious Harvard Medical and Business Schools, MIT, Boston University, and Berkley College of Music. The best way to explore the city is on foot, and there are plenty of things to do in Boston.
What can you do in Boston?
Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum
Unlike many other museums throughout the US, the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum offers adults and children an immersive, multi-sensory experience of the famous historical event.
Floating on the waters of Boston Harbour, the museum has set up some high-tech interactive exhibits, exciting documentaries and restored the original tea ships. You can also join in the fun and throw tea overboard and enjoy top-notch food at the cafe and buy souvenirs at the gift shop.
John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum
The last President of the USA to be assassinated, John F. Kennedy, left a legacy that still holds today. He loved Boston, and the building was built to be a prominent point to the city’s skyline. You can find out about the man himself, see his photos and videos, and learn more about his fashionista wife.
