Whether you are studying in Boston or just on a quick visit we recommend trying out the following as the top 5 things to see or do in Boston.
One of the biggest reasons that Boston is known as a walking city is the Freedom Trail. The trail is marked by a red brick or painted line which takes you to 16 historical sites as well as some of the most popular areas in Boston. It takes 2-3 hours to walk the whole trail, which has many places to eat along the way, and is a great way to get to know the city.
