Many of Boston’s top attractions are located within a relatively small area, and a Boston vacation rental in Back Bay or Beacon Hill will put you within walking distance. If it’s your first time in Boston, definitely walk the Freedom Trail. It’s an excellent introduction to Boston’s role in the Revolutionary War. Explore Boston’s North End for a little taste of Italy (dine at almost any restaurant, but save room for a cannoli from Mike’s Pastry or Modern Pastry). If you like the arts, visit the Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Finally, if the Red Sox, Celtics or Bruins are in town, try to catch a game. You haven’t really experienced Boston unless you’ve sat in the cheap seats at Fenway Park! A vacation rental in Boston makes it easy to explore all of these attractions and more.
Boston’s a great destination if you’re traveling with kids. You might find your kids have a newfound interest in American history after seeing landmarks like the Old North Church and the U.S.S. Constitution in person! Boston boasts an excellent Children’s Museum and Science Museum, too. Teens will love shopping at Quincy Market, a collection of shops and restaurants near Faneuil Hall. And Boston has plenty of family-friendly restaurants, especially the old-school, no-frills seafood places near Boston Harbor.
If you have a car at your disposal, you might venture a bit farther afield from your vacation rental in Boston. Continue the Revolutionary War theme with a visit to Minuteman National Park in Lexington… then stop in at Thoreau’s Walden Pond. The De Cordova Museum and Sculpture Park is a fun option, especially for families. Finally, there’s plenty of great shopping around Boston—the Wrentham Outlets are a popular day-trip destination for travelers renting a vacation home or condo in Boston.
