Boston is a city of notable firsts and, from subway systems to public libraries, it has paved the way for the rest of America for centuries. But if you think the city is all about history, you're in for a surprise when you book Boston vacations. Boston hosts the biggest St. Patrick's Day festivities this side of the Atlantic, and in keeping with its Irish heritage, offers visitors the best pub crawls on the East Coast.
Sports fans can pay homage to the Red Sox at Fenway Park or picnic by the riverside as they cheer on their favourite university rowing team at the Head of the Charles Regatta. Although its Beantown moniker has stuck hard and fast, the city serves up more than just baked beans and good food isn't far behind on the list of things that Boston does well. From its famous cream pies to the scrumptious clam chowder, you won't be able to get enough of Boston's signature dishes.
Trace your way through the history of the Revolutionary War at dozens of museums, monuments, and historic sites, indulge in every conceivable water sport, or enjoy opera, theatre, dance, and symphony performances at some of Boston's best venues. Don't think twice about visiting — with discount vacation packages and special offers, even a last minute trip can suit your budget and get you to Boston in just a few clicks.
