You can name pretty much any destination in the states and think of a few great reasons to go there. But there are certain locations which just seem to have an extra special kind of character, and Boston is definitely one of them. In some respects, although it is a well-known place, Boston sometimes gets a little forgotten in comparison to some of the bigger holiday destinations. But in today’s post, we are going to show how you just might be missing out if you never manage to visit this beautiful place. If you’re looking for a city that has a huge variety on offer, Boston might be the one.
More Than A City
Although you might go for the traditional city experience, in Boston you might actually come away having seen much more. This is because Boston is more than just a city – with thirty-four islands to its name, you can also do a fair bit of island-hopping as well. This can be a great way to shake things up if you are looking for a vacation with some variety. Of course, you will need to decide on which islands are likely to be the best to visit, but for that the answer is actually surprisingly simple to come by. Most agree that the Georges Island and Spectacle Island are particularly fascinating, and they have the added advantage of being easily accessible from the harbour too. Travelling around these islands, they are so much destinations in their own right that you might forget Boston itself – were it not for the fact that they provide fantastic views to the city.
Variety Of Accommodation
The accommodation is clearly one of the most important factors for most travellers, and in this area too Boston does not disappoint. You have such a great range and variety to choose from that you would be extremely unlikely not to find the ideal spot for you, no matter what it is that you tend to go for on your trips. Whether you want to go out of the way slightly and visit somewhere like the Crowne Plaza Boston Newton hotel, or you are keen on staying in a grand hotel on the harbour front, there is going to be something for everyone. Knowing you have somewhere decent to stay always makes the experience much more worthwhile.
If you are someone who appreciates the beauty of buildings, Boston is likely to be a favorite destination of yours across the whole of the US. There is so much to see on this front that you will probably experience some neck pain from looking up so much, and the sheer scale of some of the architecture will likely blow you away. If you really want to see some incredible buildings, consider going to Copley Square and into what is known as the ‘Athens of America’, some of the most magnificent architecture not just in the US but anywhere in the world.
