Sightseeing i Boston

Park
“Located in the heart of downtown, Boston Common is an essential attraction for all visitors and travelers coming to Boston. Boston's financial district, downtown Crossing, Newbury Street, Copley Place, Public Garden, and many more major attractions are within walking distance. Boston Common used to be a huge grazing area for livestock in the 19th century and now turned into a common space that serves as a park and hosts multiple festivals, events throughout the year. There are various food trucks/vendors near the Park Street stop and various monuments scattered across the Commons. In the winter, the Frog Pond within the Commons transforms into an outdoor skating rink; during the summer the Frog Pond carousel is open to kids along with a nearby playground. ”

“If you're looking to try classic New England staples & treats, then head over to Quincy Market. Within the Market is Faneuil Hall, which is literally a huge hall that is lined with different food vendors, from classic New England meals like lobster rolls & clam chowder to delicious treats like cannolis (if you're looking for good cannolis, I recommend Mike's Pastry which is a 15-minute walk away) and Italian gelato. If you're walking the Freedom Trail, then you will inevitably hit this location. If not, then this is a prime destination to be at. Not only is there a multitude of shopping and dining options within this area, but you are within close proximity of downtown Boston, and the beautiful Boston Harbor. This is a must-go place for any new traveler to Boston!”

You and your friends/family sit on "a W.W.II style amphibious landing vehicle" where the tour guide/driver takes you across the city and on water to the various famous locations in Boston. Worth doing for your first time in Boston! More info: https://www.bostonducktours.com/the-tour/”

Asian eateries range from dumpling houses and dim sum palaces to seafood spots and upscale lounges. Bakeries, food markets and gift shops dot the area. At the entrance to the neighborhood, contemporary Chinatown Park features a river-inspired fountain, plants native to Asia and a square that draws chess players.”

“Established in 1634, Boston Common is America’s oldest public park. But the 50-acre Common – along with the adjoined Boston Public Garden – gives the 21st century family plenty of fun to fill a full morning, afternoon or evening. Whether you enjoy a ride on the swan boats in the summer or ice skating on Frog Pond in the winter, there's something to enjoy for every season in the Common.”

“The Loring-Greenough House was constructed in 1760 by Commodore Loring and owned by the Greenough family from 1783 until 1924. The Jamaica Plain Tuesday Club purchased the house in 1924 and has been steward ever since then. In 2008, the club articulated a vibrant new community-oriented role for the House as a center for social, cultural, historical, and educational activities. ”

“The museum of African American History. A small but wonderful museum that goes over the historical happenings of Massachusetts and it's role in the civil rights movement. It's a key stop to make while in Boston. * 20 mins on train *”
