Fall for America’s Olde Towne

Among its sleek skyscrapers and trendy boroughs, Boston City’s rich heritage still shines through. Famed for its unique character and local quirks, there’s no better place to immerse yourself in America’s sweeping history.

A jumble of buzzing financial districts, Georgian-style terraces, old-world charm and natural beauty, Boston is a perfect choice for your holidays to America. While the Downtown area is very much a modern metropolis, there are still surprising pockets of green, from the beloved Boston Common, to the picturesque Greenway that winds its way through the city, to the picturesque walks along the waterfront.

There’s so much to explore. There’s beautiful Beacon Hill, the Italian-infused North End, and captivating Chinatown. Outside of Downtown, you’ll find Cambridge, home to world-renowned Harvard University, and lots of other districts with their own quirks and charms. Getting around is as simple as hopping on the T, the local underground railway. The city is also well-served by buses and train, but it’s a really great city to walk around. And don’t forget to explore further afield during your Boston holidays in 2019 – venture further along Cape Cod and you’ll encounter historic towns and stunning sights.
