7 Top Boston Attractions | Private Jet Charter
Boston has a small-town feel with big city attributes. The capital of Massachusetts, this multicultural destination on America’s north-eastern coast offers visitors a rich colonial history, superb cultural attractions, and a vibrant restaurant and bar scene.
Here are 7 of the best Boston sightseeing attractions:
Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum
Witness re-enactments of the event that led to the American Revolution. There are two restored ships to visit, the Eleanor and the Beaver, and you can throw water into the very harbour that kicked off the American Revolution. Visit the crew quarters and captain’s cabin or even take the wheel yourself. The Museum features interactive exhibits, guides in period dress and a multi-media documentary on the event that shaped American history.
Faneuil Hall Marketplace
Bostonians have gathered at Faneuil Hall since 1742 and the area remains a popular haunt for tourists and locals. Visit the North, South and Quincy Markets with their restaurants, bars, unique boutiques and street entertainment. The District borders the Waterfront, the North End, the Financial District and Government Center.
Walk the Freedom Trail
Discover Boston’s historical legacy with this trail walk along the city’s 17 most popular American Revolution sight-seeing areas. The self-guided 2.5 mile walk – follow the red line – begins in America’s oldest park, 50-acre Boston Common and concludes at Bunker Hill Monument. Some of the 17 stops on the trail include Paul Revere’s house, the USS Constitution, Granary Burial Ground and Faneuil Hall Marketplace.
John F Kennedy Presidential Museum and Library
Arguably the most influential US President of modern times, the life and service of JFK is celebrated here in this museum dedicated to his family and political life. Exhibits also include artefacts that belonged to his wife, Jackie Kennedy, a widely-loved First Lady who was instrumental in giving the White House an historical overhaul back in the 60s.
Walk into history along the charming cobblestone neighbourhood of Beacon Hill. The Federal-style row houses, and narrow gas-lit streets are among the most expensive real estate in Boston. Located at the top of Beacon Hill, it has a great selection of independent stores, and old pubs including the Beacon Hill pub and The Sevens Ale House.
Isabella Gardener Museum
An unmissable exhibition of art, tapestries, furniture, manuscripts, rare books and more, all beautifully featured in the socialite and philanthropist’s former home – an outstanding three-storey, 15th-century Venetian style palace, only a short walk from the Museum of Fine Art.
Boston Catamaran Cruise to Cape Cod (Provincetown)
Boston is surrounded by water so what better way than to take this 90-minute adventure to the beautiful Cape Cod. Infinitely better than driving the 120 miles, depart from Long Wharf and arrive in Provincetown 90 minutes later. As well as sights of historic Boston from the water, Provincetown is the site of the landing of the Mayflower that carried the Pilgrim Fathers to American in 1620.
