Are you looking forward to getting the taste of the four seasons of New England, its history, its sea food and professional sports of all types? If yes, Boston is your ultimate destination. Boston is a place where 20 million people visit every year to explore the neighborhoods, check out landmarks, museums and enjoy the staple foods of the place like lobster rolls. When you're in Boston, there are lots of culture, food and entertainment to soak in.

When is the right time to visit Boston?

Boston is one such destination where you can feel the warmth of all four seasons. There are lots of things to do in each of the seasons. Due to this factor, the most appropriate time to visit the place is entirely based on your personal preferences. If you wish to experience the snow, you have to travel during winter, if you wish to visit the fall foliage, you have to travel during the summer months. However, most prefer visiting Boston either during early fall (September to October) or during late spring (May to June).

Where should you stay in Boston?

Ranging from revered brands to post boutique options, there are a wide variety of hotels you can choose from when you're in Boston. If you choose to live like a local, renting cannabis-friendly Airbnbs can be a reasonable option.

While you can reach from one place to another in Boston very easily and hence before you book an Airbnb or a hotel, make a list of the places you wish to visit. If you're eager to try the public transport of the city, life will be easier if you stay close to the MBTA. Moreover, for Airbnbs, be watchful about the location as the cheapest ones are often located at the most non-accessible spots.

Are you a shopaholic who is primarily in Boston to shop your heart out? If yes, you should visit Newbury Street and for that, you have to stay at the Back Bay. On the other hand, if you're a history fan, focus on the numerous historical museums and landmarks that make Boston famous as a historical city.

The eateries of Boston - A foodie's delight!

Both Boston and New England are well-known for coastal foods, especially seafood. Nevertheless, depending on the neighborhood you're staying in, there are also various other staple foods to try. To give a start to your taste buds, get a clam chowder or a lobster roll from any of the local seafood restaurants. In case you head towards the north of the city, you'll also get the best beef sandwiches which are a staple for the locals.

Within the last few years, Boston has also become one of the beer destinations with breweries popping up everywhere in all parts of the city. You can try out the best beer either at the bars around the city or at the local breweries, most of which are dog-friendly spaces. If you're not a craft beer person, try out the more popular Boston breweries - Harpoon and Sam Adams.

3 Things to do while you're in Boston

What you should do in Boston will depend on the time you're visiting the place. Regardless of the time of year, here are three things you shouldn't miss.

Walk through the Freedom Trail which is a 2.5-mile pathway. This long pathway will guide you through the various historic landmarks like the Charlestown at the Bunker Hill Monument and the Boston Common. 

Visit the best museums. Notable museums are the Boston Children's Museum, the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, and the Museum of Science. 

Shop at the Boylston Street, Newbury Street, Prudential Center, and Copley Plaza. For local boutiques, Charles Street is another must-try.

So, if you're in Boston and you want to make your trip memorable, make sure you follow the guide given above.
