Boston is a classic New England city, rich in culture and history. Visitors can appreciate the great outdoors by taking a Duck Boat Tour, or by checking out the Bunker Hill Monument, the Freedom Trail, or Boston Common.
Tourists can also shop on Newbury Street or Copley Place, stroll along the Charles River, or check out the city from a bird’s perspective with a visit to the Prudential Center’s Skywalk Observatory. Fenway Park and the Boston Garden are the Hub’s must-see locations for sports fans, while tourists who are into the arts can visit the Museum of Fine Arts. Animal lovers can visit the Boston Aquarium, the Franklin Park Zoo, or the Make Way for Ducklings statues on Boston Common.
With all these attractions, visitors will need to spend at least a couple of days in Bean Town to see all the sights. And if a trip includes a pet, then consider making reservations at one of the following pet-friendly hotels in the Boston metro area:
