Visit the significant sites of the American Revolution, Paul Revere’s House, Faneuil Hall, the Aquarium, the Cheers bar of TV fame and much more!
It’s a shopper’s paradise in Boston, whether you seek a designer bargain at Filene’s basement, decide to window shop at the intriguingly beautiful shops of Newbury Street, wish to soak up the ‘Covent Garden style’ atmosphere of Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall Marketplace or experience the malls of Copley Square and the Prudential Centre featuring Saks Fifth Avenue amongst many!
Take a high-speed catamaran to the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, an area home to several kinds of large whales, including humpback, finback and right whales or go on a Boston Duck Tour – a wonderful way to get a great look at Boston by land and water.
