My City Guide to Boston

Boston Park Plaza

17th January 2017: I was recently given the opportunity to travel to Boston, USA and was blown away with this amazing city and all it has to offer. Here’s my guide to where to stay and what to do.

Where to Stay

I spent two nights at the Boston Park Plaza. The location of this hotel is truly fantastic, and from here you can walk just about anywhere in the city.

Getting Around

The Freedom Trail is a great way to see the city. It’s a 2.5 mile walk, which takes in 16 historical sights. Steeped in history, the trail helps you to discover the rich history of the American Revolution and learn about the brave people who helped shape the nation.

To give my feet a rest, I then took the hop on, hop off trolley tour. This is another great way to see the city and a second chance to see Boston's top attractions, such as the USS Constitution, Faneuil Hall, Paul Revere House and many more.

Top tip: Avoid travelling to Cape Cod on a Friday in the summer months! From experience, a normal 1.5 hour journey can easily be doubled!

What to See and Do

Visit the SkyWalk Observatory for panoramic views of Boston. I can highly recommend seeing the city at sunset and having a drink at the bar on the 52nd floor!

The beautiful Boston Public Library, located in Copley Square is also a must. Founded in 1848, the library holds a staggering 23 million items, making it very easy to lose a few hours browsing!

Boston Public Library

The Public Garden and Boston Common is a huge expanse of beautifully maintained parkland and lovely for a stroll.

Allow a day to explore Salem, just an hour north of Boston and easy to access by train. This quirky town is home to famous Salem Witch Trials and Hocus Pocus!

Top tip: Take advantage of the 'Boston Go Card' - this easy to use card allows access to over 40 unique attractions and tours.

Where to Eat

I enjoyed a fantastic breakfast at The Langham which was once Boston's Federal Reserve Bank.

In the evening, we headed to the Union Oyster House, America's oldest restaurant and where JFK would eat every Sunday. The restaurant has a dedicated booth to JFK, and we were fortunate enough to sit in this booth for our meal!

I also enjoyed a great breakfast at the Fairmont Copley, the blueberry and maple syrup pancakes were a great fuel to start the day on!

Boston is sure to have something to interest everyone. If you’d like to plan a visit, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me and I can help you arrange your very own tailor made package.
