It is one of the oldest and largest cities of USA and capital of Massachusetts.
Magnificent buildings, Stunning architecture, World class universities, whale watching excursions, rich history and picturesque views are what this city is best known for.

I hope you might have guessed the name by now, yes, it is Boston.

I have heard somewhere that if you have lived in Boston once, you will not feel to go anywhere else. That made me more curious to visit this stunning place.

I recently visited Boston and was mesmerized with its beauty and grandeur.

The charm and charisma of the city is so magical that you will be spellbound by its awesomeness and would wish to live here forever.

Here are the top destinations and things to do and see that you can possibly fit into one visit.

1. Harvard and MIT
Start your day with a visit to the world class universities, Harvard and MIT.
    The moment you set your feet in these top class institutes, there is a different world that awaits
    you. First thing to observe is the modern pieces of architecture and designs that are spread across
    the campus.
    There are hundreds of sculptures and art installations that you can see with the help of a self-
    guided walking tour map.
    The notice boards are filled with latest trends and innovative ideas from the technology world.

After getting a glimpse of the latest in the technology world, go for the ultimate walk through the
    history of USA and America’s fight for liberty.
    The three-mile Freedom Trail leads you through 16 of the city's principal historic monuments and
    sites. It's easy to follow, by the line of red bricks in the sidewalk and by footprints at street

      Though you can visit the Quincy Market at any time of the day but visiting it during the night is

      Walking along the waterfront is quite scenic and pleasant and is the best way to end the day.

Cuisine in Boston is similar to the rest of New England cuisine, in that it has a large emphasis on seafood and dairy products. The must try dishes are -:
Clam Chowder, Boston Cream Pie, Lobster pizza and Cannoli.

As always, our suggestion is to stay at an AirBnB place, which is available at reasonable prices and is not more than an hour distance from Boston.

Explorerlens Gyan:
1. Parking is a big problem in USA and when you are at places like Boston, where you can do roadside parking only for couple of hours, it becomes quite necessary to find a garage to park your vehicle for the whole day. Typically, the charges for 10+ hours is $15.
2. The best way to explore Boston is on foot or on a bike. You can rent a bike from lot of places at a reasonable rate.
3. Boston is an architectural masterpiece, especially the churches and old monuments.
So it is highly suggested to explore the city strolling the lanes. A good point to start is from the Prudential Center.
4. Boston is also known for its whale watching tours so do book one. I would suggest Cape Ann tours.
