Boston is one of the most historic, wealthy and influential cities in the United States of America. 16.3 million visitors a year flock to the city, and with its myriad of museums, historical sights and live arts and music performances it’s easy to see why. Boston is one of the ten most popular tourist locations in the country, and well worth a visit on your trip to America.

Being one of the first areas that British settlers colonised hundreds of years ago, Boston has some of the oldest and most historic buildings in the whole of America. Many of these can be found in the city’s world famous academic institution, Harvard University. Traditionally a home of America’s elite, lawmakers, politicians and literary figures throughout the ages have flocked to Boston to decide the future of the country. We recommend visiting in the spring time, as winter can get too hot, and on March 17th there is an incredible St. Patrick’s Day parade right through the city.
