Boston is not just one of the most historic cities in America, it’s also one of the prettiest. Think gorgeous tall brick windows with slatted shutters, amazing coffee shops, parks, lakes all off set by the gleaming skyscrapers of Boston’s financial district. It’s no wonder that the great American novelist Henry James lived here, and also set it as the location to his book “The Bostonians” – well worth a read to get a sense of the place before your trip. Without a doubt the best way to see Boston is on foot, on a fabulous free walking tour.
