Things to Do in Boston
Boston is also one of the most historically significant cities in the country, and many of its local attractions showcase its huge role in America's past. Among the top spots is the Freedom Trail, which guides you through a walking tour of 16 of the area's most famous Colonial sites. You'll follow red brick paths and painted lines to find the Benjamin Franklin Statue, Old State House, Paul Revere House and Bunker Hill Monument as well as the location of the Boston Massacre. Other historic spots worth checking out include the JFK Presidential Library and Museum, Newbury Street, Copley Square and the Boston Light.
If you're looking for nightlife excitement in this New England city, there are plenty of bars, clubs, lounges and entertainment venues from which to choose. Wally's Cafe is a beloved local haunt (especially among Berklee students), and there's live music many nights of the week. You can also catch some good tunes at Cafe 939, Lizard Lounge and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Those just seeking a good drink can head to Bleacher Bar, Beantown Pub or Samuel Adams Brewery, and foodies will enjoy the wide range of restaurants such as Neptune Oyster, Hungry Mother and Coppa.
