You’ll find that a visit to Boston is an experience you will never forget. By the time you leave, you will have experienced a whirlwind you probably never thought possible. These are the best places to see during your stay:
When you visit the Orpheum Theater, you’re getting two trips in one. Seeing a Broadway play in Boston saves you the hassle of a New York City getaway. And when there’s no Broadway show playing, there is probably a concert taking place. Some of the hottest artists in the country take to the stage of the Orpheum Theater.
Boston’s Chinatown is the ultimate destination if you love great restaurants and want a taste of the local culture. The only two Chinatowns larger than Boston’s are San Francisco and New York City.
Found at the edge of the financial district, on a beautiful day you can walk to Chinatown. Depending on when you are visiting, you may even get to experience a Chinese holiday celebration. The Chinese New Year is a particularly cool experience.
You’ll never go hungry or thirsty in Chinatown. The dozens of charming Chinese restaurants are a staple of the area. Combine that with their tea houses, and you’ll have an authentic cultural experience.
A cruise around the Boston Harbor lets you kick back, relax and take in the view. You can choose from cruises like the USS Constitution and Sea The Stars. No matter which one you choose, you are in for an experience you’ll likely want to repeat. You can also go whale watching or even take a ride in a water taxi.
New England Aquarium
As a landmark of the Boston waterfront, the New England Aquarium is a must-do attraction. Most people swarm the aquarium to see its Giant Ocean Tank, which contains 200,000 gallons of water. In the tank, you will find a simulation of a coral reef filled with tropical fish, sea turtles, sharks, and moray eels. If that’s a little too intense for you, there are also galleries where you can see sea otters, piranhas, and various penguin species.
Fan Pier Park
To get a local feel for Boston, visit the Fan Pier Park. Aside from being a residential area, it offers great shopping and dining options. Before you know it, you may never want to leave Boston when you get a glimpse into this place.
