Boston and New England

Magnificent changing Autumn colours and plenty of historical attractions

Boston and New England conjure up images of crisp autumn days and the russet red and brown hues of the leaves that scatter throughout the streets and parks. It’s a sight you will have seen in photographs many times but what could be better than visiting this scenic destination and seeing this wonderful destination yourself?  This region is home to the Red Sox, the famous ‘Cheers’ bar and much more as well so there’s plenty to do and see for everyone.

Whale watching and surfing are just two of the many fantastic activities available to visitors. There’s also an abundance of historical landmarks to see – make sure you take the Freedom Trail; a 2.5 mile self-guided tour of American Revolution sites. This allows you to take in sights such as the Boston Common, Paul Revere House and the Bunker Hill Monument.

You can see beautiful artefacts and paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts, visit the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum and explore the historic sights and cobblestone streets of the North End. There are plenty of high-end shopping opportunities as well, with designer stores and boutiques located in the upscale Back Bay district and more mainstream shops in The Prudential Centre.

For a change of pace, head over the the white beaches of Rhode Island or the utterly charming and exclusive Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard.
