Boston Travel Guide

Introduction

Boston is the largest city in New England, the capital of the state of Massachusetts, and one of the most historic, wealthy and influential cities in the United States of America. Its plethora of museums, historical sights, and wealth of live performances, all explain why the city gets 16.3 million visitors a year, making it one of the ten most popular tourist locations in the country.

Although not part of Boston, the neighboring cities of Cambridge, Brookline, Somerville, Quincy, Milton, Malden, Newton, Medford, and Revere are somewhat connected to Boston via frequent rail-based mass transit, or the T. Cambridge, just across the Charles River, is home to the world-renowned universities Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, or MIT, local galleries, restaurants, and bars and is an essential addition to any visit to Boston. Somerville, northwest of Cambridge, has a diverse and interesting dining and shopping scene, and also contains Tufts University. Brookline is almost entirely surrounded by Boston and has some of its own dining and shopping options. Quincy has some nightlife, dining, and shopping, but it is mostly local and in most cases doesn't justify the visit. Milton, Malden, Medford, Newton, and Revere are all much more residential. However, Revere is known for its beach, Revere Beach, which is right next to a T station, Medford is the home to part of Tufts' campus and some dining and shopping options, and Newton has a town centre with some restaurants and stores. However, none of them are destinations or receive much tourism in their own right, with the possible exception of Revere, due to the previously mentioned Revere Beach.
