What to see in Boston

Boston is one of the most interesting cities in the United States, perhaps for being one of the oldest and for appearing in numerous series and movies throughout history. It is in the state of Massachusetts , less than two hours by train or car from New York, so it is an ideal place to visit if you are going to travel to the Big Apple.

There you can find many places of interest, both in monuments and in buildings and even in sports venues (from there are the famous Boston Celtics for basketball or the Red Sox for baseball). It is a city that stands out for its great cultural and academic offer, as well as for hosting places of great artistic and historical importance.

Boston Museums

Among the most interesting are the Museum of Fine Arts (one of the most important in the city and which has extensive collections from different periods and styles), the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum (on the first floor there are personal and unpublished by President JFK, as well as objects from what was his office), State House (you will find the best of classical architecture) or The Mayflower II (a replica of the ship that brought the first pilgrims to the country).

Boston landmarks

Of the highlights is the Public Library (the first municipal library in the country and which is still the most important today), Symphony Hall (one of the most important concert halls in the entire country and which has several statues) or Cathedral of the Holy Cross of Boston (the most important church in the city).

Boston parks

The Boston Common is the oldest and the largest thanks to its more than 20 hectares that connect with the most famous streets of the city. Also very interesting is the New England Aquarium (an aquarium where there are penguins, starfish and many varieties of fish), the Franklin Park Zoo (it is free on the first Saturday of the month) or the Public Garden (you can take a boat trip through its lagoon).
