It’s safe to say that Boston is a city filled with historical facts just around each and every corner. Despite being a prominent city in US history, the largest city in New England has so much more to offer. The luscious green parks are abundant, the long waterfront walks are plentiful, and the amount of shopping will surely make any woman smile. Being one of America’s oldest cities, it’s safe to say that there are a ton of activities to keep busy.
Pro Tip: If you are a Yankees fan, keep that information to yourself. Red Sox fans are extremely loyal and you wouldn’t want anyone to “accidentally” spill some mustard on you!
If you have additional time:
- Check out Harvard and MIT in the Cambridge Area. Both campuses are absolutely gorgeous to walk through, and you could spend an entire afternoon exploring.
- A little off-the-beaten-path, and mostly unknown to tourists, Jamaica Pond makes for a great walk on a bright, sunny day. Plus, the ice cream at J.P. Licks can’t be beat!
- Interested in yet another picturesque walk? The three-mile leafy path of the Charles-River Esplanade will provide just that. Tired of walking? Go canoeing in the river or tan yourself with those great river breezes!
- Care to hang out with the sharks, stingrays, and penguins? Head on over to the New England Aquarium for an afternoon! The massive 3-story center tank is truly impressive.
