The second stop on my US east-coast trip was Boston, Massachusetts. Boston is probably most famous for its historic sites, being the oldest city in America and home of the revolution which secured independence from the British!
Boston has its fair share of skyscrapers but there any comparisons with New York end. Its leafy parks lofty academics (Harvard & MIT nearby) give it a very ‘middle class’ feeling, a world away from the hustle and bustle of NY. You can see all the historic sites on foot by way of the 4.8km Freedom Trail and a well clued-up traveller can explore Boston quite comfortably in a day.
For cheap eats and a wide variety make sure you drop by Quincy Market where you can find just about anything your stomach desires!!
