Boston is a historic city – it is one of the classiest cities in the US with amazing museums, elegant diners and easy access to exclusive beach resorts. With red bricked buildings, brown stones and respected universities, the architecture and culture of this city reminds one the look of an English town. The streets of Boston are compact and narrow which makes this city an excellent place to explore on foot. The last time I visited this city, I noted down some cool tips and different ways of exploring Boston. So, I made this Boston city travel guide for you. Hope you will find it helpful.
Did you know Boston is also known as the “Walking City”? It’s actually the nickname of Boston. There are so many lovely sights in this city which you might want to explore on foot. I would suggest that you grab a map and go on a free tour of the city led by you. A walk down to the Newbury Street is an excellent idea because there you will find some great food and boutiques for shopping.
Bike rentals are becoming common now in all the cities of the world. Exploring the city at your own pace is a fun activity and is easy for visitors. Many people also rent a bike because it is a cheap source of traveling. There are many good bike rental companies in Boston from where you can rent one bike or multiple bikes if you are traveling with family or friends. Breeze down the busy streets and explore Boston in a fun way.
You don’t need to walk for this one. Sit back and relax on Boston’s most famous Duck Tour vehicles. Motorized and amphibious, Duck Tour vehicles will take you on tour of the city and then will drive you into the river; yes you don’t need to get off it. The vehicle goes into the river and turns in to a boat. That’s why it is called the duck tour – able to travel on land and water, that’s what the ducks do.
The idea of finding yourself in Charles River doesn’t sound well? Don’t fret; you can see the Beantown through the Trolley tour. This is a tame way of exploring and seeing Boston. Trolley tours have expert guides on them and they tell you all about the history of different attractions. They stop on different spots where you can hop off and explore a little on your own.
Spring season of Boston is perfect for relaxation. If you want to spend a relaxing day, just enjoying the weather, then visit Boston’s Public Garden and relax on the swan boats. These delightful boats have been adorning Boston’s waters since the year 1877.
