“America is another name for opportunity.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Some of the most important events in America’s independence took place here – what better place to bring your family for a taste of American history. Boston’s many historical landmarks truly makes it one of the world’s most popular travel destinations.
It’s also an exciting and friendly destination. And like London, Florence and San Francisco, it’s an interesting “walking city” – everything is conveniently located, so you don’t need a car to get around.
Home to some of the finest museums in the nation, Boston also has great theaters, gourmet restaurants, beautiful parks, fabulous shopping – and over 100 world-class educational institutions. The Boston Symphony Orchestra (“Boston Pops”) is one of the most renowned in the world. Harborfest is Boston’s weeklong version of the Fourth of July – it’s a fun time to visit the city. During this time, visitors and locals flock here for the Boston Pops 4th of July Concert on the Esplanade and Fireworks over the harbor.

The Best Time To Visit Boston
The best time of the year to visit Boston is during the late Spring (before a hot humid summer sets in), or in September or October, when the trees offer a spectacular explosion of Fall colors – something we don’t get to see too much of on the West Coast.
