Boston is a great city, full of history, and the people of Boston want visitors to know they're still open for business. With that in mind, here are some great places in Boston to visit:

The Freedom Trail

The Freedom Trail is a two-and-a-half mile walk that takes visitors through the city's many historical Revolutionary landmarks, such as Boston Common, Bunker Hill, Faneuil Hall and the Old North Church. The walk can be done quickly in an hour but is better if you allow three hours.

The Boston Botanical Garden, which is America's oldest botanical garden.

Boston Public Garden

The garden is located along Charles Street near Boston Common and is the nation's oldest botanical garden. In winter, the pond is open to ice skaters, while the rest of the year, the famous swan boats operate.

Quincy Market

The official name of the market hall is Faneuil Hall Marketplace. It's an indoor and outdoor center with both shopping and dining options.

Fenway Park

Fenway Park is the famous and historic home of the Boston Red Sox, who have played at the stadium since 1912.

Sam Adams Brewery

The founding father is also well known for his brewery, which offers tours where visitors can observe the beer-making process and try a sample of the finished product. The brewery also houses the Boston Beer Museum.

Cheers Boston

The restaurant is famous as the location of the popular television show "Cheers". It was originally called the Bull & Finch Pub, and is located in the Beacon Hill District. It is very touristy, but for fans of the show, it's a must see.

New England Aquarium

A popular family attraction, the aquarium houses sea lions and penguins and many other kinds of sea life.

Boston Harbor Islands

The islands are a national park consisting of 34 tiny islands in Boston Harbor, where you can camp out and explore.
