When it comes down to it, every major city in the US seems to have the same old attractions (shopping, viewing tower, etc), but Boston stands out in that it is the home of the freedom trail. Follow the red (not yellow) brick road and you have yourself a self-guided tour of the freedom trail. Don't bother paying for a guided tour, because this way you can stop along any of the attractions anytime you want. And you really cannot get lost, since the red brick trail is clearly marked all along the way. Don't miss the Whale watch (also along the trail, at the New England Aquarium) - a must see, if you haven't been on any other!
