  1. Go for a walk. Boston is a walkers dream, due to its narrow cobbled streets and attractions around every corner. Walking is very popular in Boston, so forget public transport and grab a good pair of walking shoes!
  2. Lunch at the market. Try and squeeze in a visit to Boston Public Market as it is a great place to grab some local cuisine. Alongside a variety of fish, you will find sweet treats and a range of local produce.
  3. Relax in the park. Boston has nine parks which are all linked by parkways and waterways so you will be spoilt for choice of where to visit first. This group of parks are called the Emerald Necklace and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
  4. Go to the neighbourhoods. The neighbourhoods in Boston is one of the many attributes that makes it one of a kind. Each neighbourhood is different and suits a variety of interests, for example Beacon Hill is fantastic for architecture and South End is home to top restaurants.
  5. Chat to the locals. The people that live in Boston are incredibly friendly and welcome visitors all year round. If you want to strike up a conversation ask them about baseball, as they will definitely have an opinion about the Boston Red Sox!

Boston is definitely one of the most accessible cities to walk around- so take some comfy shoes!

Try and squeeze in some time to visit Harvard as it is definitely a must-see. I would also recommend spending an afternoon browsing the vintage shops!
