Your travel guide to Boston
The variety of fun and interesting things to do in the City of Boston can keep visitors busy for days on end. From your Boston hotel, it’s just a short distance to historical attractions like the Paul Revere House, Boston Common or Faneuil Hall. Catch a Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park before returning to your Boston Hotel for a good night's sleep.
From downtown Boston hotels, you can see many of the city’s dynamic neighborhoods. Stroll the historic brick streets of Beacon Hill or dine on traditional Italian cuisine in the North End. Gaze across the harbor from your Boston Waterfront hotel or while sipping coffee at a Long Wharf cafe. Chinatown has a host of authentic Asian restaurants; the adjacent Leather District has emerged as a new shopping and dining destination. Downtown Boston hotels are a short stroll away from all of this.
Boston is a compact city; shopping, dining and hotels in Boston are all close together. It’s known as a walking city, but your Boston hotel concierge will be happy to call a taxi when you are too tired to walk! Taxis are plentiful in downtown Boston’s hotel districts. The Boston subway is known as “the T.” It is generally direct, efficient and clean and can get you from most Boston hotels to Harvard, Fenway, the JFK Library and other destinations outside of downtown.
Boston is renowned for its park system and public spaces. Chances are, joggers and bicyclists passing by your Boston hotel are on their way to or from one of these popular green spaces. Boston Common, the Back Bay Fens, Jamaica Pond and many more parks are all part of Boston’s beloved Emerald Necklace. Ask a local or the staff at your hotel in Boston how to get to the closest park or the new Rose Kennedy Greenway.
