Boston, the capital of Massachusetts and the state’s largest city, is one of the oldest cities in in the United States. It was founded in 1630 and was the site of some key events of the American Revolution and a great place to learn about American history. Today the city is an exciting destination with something for everyone including sport fans, history buffs, and foodies.
1. CityPASS: Savvy and budget-minded visitors will want to purchase the Boston CityPASS which allows admission to the New England Aquarium, Museum of Science, Skywalk Observatory, Museum of Fine Arts and Old State House or the Harvard Museum with a savings of nearly 50%. It eliminates waiting in line which is a real plus during the height of the tourist season. No need to rush from one site to another because the CityPass is valid for nine days.
2. Trolley Tours: There are a variety of tour buses and duck tours all offering a menu of deals for traveling about Boston. Old Town Trolley Tour is an excellent choice with a hop-on-hop-off option and great perks such as a choice of free admission to the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum or Boston Harbor Cruise. Purchase online for greater savings. There is a lot to see and do so a two-day ticket is a great idea. Take the entire tour once around and then decide what you want to see before hoping off.
