Boston

City of Champions

Boston is everything you think it is–seafood, strong accents, rabid sports fans–and so much more. Bring your best pair of walking shoes, because this city has a startling amount of beautiful places to explore, incredible food to eat, and wicked fun things to do.
 
Visitors expecting merely the basics will be pleasantly surprised by all that Boston has to offer. It’s more than just a sports city, it’s more than just a historic city, it’s more than just a one-thing kinda city. It has the rich crime drama à la The Departed on one side, yet has areas of sprawling academia, medicine, and some of the finest intellectual hubs in the world.
 
Its historic neighborhoods and world-class shopping drip with elegance, but the city also has some of the best donuts and coffee known to man. There is truly something for everybody in this New England port city.

From pricey to cheap eats and pizza to seafood. Here’s our list of favorite eateries to crush every craving.
 

  

The Bucket List

If you’re a first time Boston visitor, we feel obliged to show you the places that make this city so iconic.
 

Beacon Hill and The Freedom Trail

Boston is rich with history and you can see it all at your leisure. Be a tourist. If revolutionary era burial grounds, courthouses, and historic buildings are your kinda thing, then you shouldn’t miss this.
 

Fenway Park and Neighborhood

This is the home of the Red Sox and backdrop to countless movies. It’s no secret that Bostonians love their ballgames and their sporty spirit, so if you feel like becoming one with your environment, this may be just the way.
 

Newbury Street

This shopping hub in the Back Bay is favored by Bostonians for so many reasons: it’s the marathon finish line, accessible by the T, located near Copley Square, and offering tons of well-known shopping and eateries.
 

Rowes Wharf

The perfect place for a pleasant evening stroll down one of Boston’s most beautiful wharfs. Make a night out of it and enjoy some waterfront dining or sightseeing.
 

The North End

Boston’s oldest residential community and home of the city’s Little Italy. This means lots of great food, mom and pop shops, and the likes.
  

Where To Drink

Outings are not all created equal. Some nights may involve well-crafted cocktails, while others may mean $3 beers and a jukebox. We set out to cover a few lanes, just in case you can’t make up your mind.
 

  

Getting Around

Not The Subway, Not Tea. The T! Bostonians don’t use a subway…really. They lovingly, and not so lovingly, refer to their subway system as “The T.” The T has multiple lines in multiple colors, but it’s pretty user-friendly. Here are some tips to help you get around.
 

The Green Line

This line has several different veins of travel. Within the Green Line there are the B, C, D, and E lines, which all head to different destinations. The D Line is arguably the most useful to tourists, because it runs through the Fenway area. However, the other lines also do have some touristy stops on them. Check out one of the huge maps at each subway stop to see which Green Line you may need.
 

The Orange Line

The Orange Line runs all the way from Forest Hills, in Jamaica Plain, to the other side of the city. Stops along here include Back Bay and Haymarket.
 

The Red Line

The Red Line is massively long! Much of it is for commuting purposes, however, one end of it in particular will be useful to tourists. Visitors traveling to and from the Cambridge area will need the Red Line. It passes through Harvard, MIT, and then Park Street to Downtown Crossing.
 

The Silver Line

The Silver Line is key for traveling in and out of South Station, and Logan Airport. It is a transportation hub and has several lines within it. Check out the big maps at each subway stop to see which Silver Line you need.
 

The Blue Line

The Blue Line can be used to reach the New England Aquarium, among many other stops, and also as another way to reach Logan Airport.
