Boston Mass is located in the Eastern part of Massachusetts, yet West of Martha’s Vineyard. This is a gorgeous city rich in history, unending entertainment and many great places to visit.
While it would be impossible to even visit half of the things the city has to offer in a day, I would like to highlight some must see places to visit and things to do.
Getting in touch with nature is so easy to do when you go to Boston Common. You can take a stroll among the 50 acres the Common has, or relax in the sun while watching performers, such as jugglers, musicians and entertainers. Getting fresh roasted peanuts from the vendor that strolls the park on a sunny summer day is a must do.
You can then head over to The Museum of Science, with hundreds of hand on experiments, this is a place where young and old alike will have a great time exploring together, make sure you stop by the musical stairs and play a song. The museum of science can take an entire day. This is a great place for those rainy days where science education and fun are the main focus.
From here you can walk through the country’s most historically significant building, Faneuil Hall. Built in 1742 by Peter Faneuil, this building has been used for many speeches from famous people throughout its history, make sure you go upstairs to learn about the history of the building and the area. Listen to park rangers’ talk about all of the things that have happened in the building and surrounding land.
Make sure to stop by Faneuil Hall marketplace, also known as Quincy market, where you can peruse the wide choice of shops and restaurants, don’t forget the souvenirs, so that you can remember your trip.
After Faneuil Hall take a short stroll over to the New England Aquarium, where you will learn about otters, poisonous fish, and penguins just to name a few. There is nothing else like the touch tank, where you will pet the softness of a sting rays. Don’t worry, their stingers have been removed.
Also, one cannot go to Boston without going to the annual Chowderfest, a Boston Pops concert or watching the Mother’s day duck waddle.
Sports fans can watch a baseball game at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. Bring your glove and try to catch a ball from one of the famous batters.
Whatever amount of time you spend in Boston, there is plenty to see, do and experience. Don’t hesitate to mingle with the locals, have drink of Boston Lager in one of the pubs and enjoy your stay. The memories will last a lifetime. A trip to Boston Mass should certainly be on your bucket list.
