Boston is one of the United States’ oldest cities and is famous for its role in the American Revolution. You can explore the city’s history by following the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile marked route that takes you to many significant sites, including Faneuil Hall, Paul Revere House, and the Bunker Hill Monument. Boston is a modern cosmopolitan city, too, full of great shopping and dining experiences, from Copley Place to Newbury Street.
Offering superb quality facilities, including free Wi-Fi, private rooms, 24-hour reception, and free breakfast, Boston hostels make the perfect base for exploring the city. Hostels such as HI Boston are within easy reach of Logan Airport and put you close to many of the city’s lively neighborhoods, including Back Bay, Downtown and Beacon Hill.
No visit to Boston, MA, is complete without a trip to Fenway Park, home of baseball’s legendary Boston Red Sox. But if sports aren’t your thing, then take a trip across the Charles River to Harvard Square in Cambridge. This seat of learning is a great place to take a stroll, explore its many bookshops, and enjoy a slice of pizza.
