Boston Tours, Shopping and Attractions Guide

What to do in Boston


From walking in the steps of the Founding Fathers on the Freedom Trail to contemplating the newest installation at the Institute of Contemporary Art, you’re bound to learn something from or have your perspective broadened by Boston’s array of cultural activities. The city’s museums, both small and large, offer deep collections, and the artistic performances of groups like the Boston Symphony (BSO) and Boston Ballet are must-sees, especially if you’re in town at the holidays. The other area in which Boston shines is its green spaces—from the little tucked-away parks of the North End, to the Frog Pond on the Boston Common, to the Arnold Arboretum and the Forest Hills Cemetery, there are so many spots to create an outdoor memory, all without leaving the city!
