Boston, also known as “The Cradle of Liberty”, is one of the oldest cities in the United States. It’s landscape is rich with memorials of hard fought freedom won during the Revolutionary War in the late 18th century, yet it is also a modern and exciting place to visit. Boston is is a mixture of that which stays the same, and that which is forever changing. It is home to peoples who come from all over the globe; having the third largest Chinatown in the nation, and is also bursting with immigrants from many latin american, asian, and african nations. In fact, more than 25% of Boston’s population is foreign born.

In 2019 Boston will open its first casino, the billion dollar Encore Boston Harbor; ushering in a new era of excitement to complement that which is already here. Visit such diverse areas as the North End, which is home to beautiful Columbus Waterfront Park and some of the tastiest Italian eateries. Also see the rapidly developing Seaport District, and the historic Boston Common, the oldest city park in the United States. But there is so much more to see and do. Shoppers will delight in Newbury Street and Faneuil Hall, while nature lovers will be happy to explore the majestic Charles River and the Freedom Trail. In Boston you will find it all.

Food

If there is a cuisine you can’t find in Boston then you just aren’t looking hard enough. Dozens of authentic asian restaurants can be found in Chinatown. We’ll have Dim Sum at China Pearl and visit another local favorite for a lunch or two. Of course you’ll want to eat like the locals, which means the freshest Seafood! You’ll never go wrong at Union Oyster House; Boston’s Oldest restaurant. But there are other greats like Neptune Cafe and Legal Harborside. We’ll take in the view of Boston Harbor one night from Legal’s. At the Prudential Center, in the heart of
Boston, you’ll find other gastronomic treats like Eataly; the huge Italian marketplace filled with specialty foods to take home or dine in. Other restaurants like California Pizza Kitchen and Wagamama can be found at other ends of the Prudential Center. You may also wish to visit any number of great American steak restaurants like Davio’s, Smith and Wollensky, or Flemings. To research more of Boston’s great restaurant scene, check out this link:

Sightseeing

There is much to do in little time, but we’ll do our best to show you the history, the romance, the art and the culture of the city Deutsche Bank ranks 8th best in the world for quality of life. We’ll walk the Freedom trail which is the link between Boston’s greatest historical places like the Old North Church, and the Granary Burying Ground. In the Granary you’ll find the gravestones of such notable historical figures as Paul Revere, Samuel Adams and the parents of Benjamin Franklin. Other sites along the route include the Old South Meeting House, the home of Paul Revere, and Faneuil Hall.

What would Boston be without its colleges and universities? Home to over 50 such places of study, we’ll focus on two of the most venerable; visiting Harvard and MIT for tours. Other notable institutions include Boston University, the largest at over 33,000 students, and Boston College, a private Jesuit Catholic university. Don’t forget about Northeastern, Tufts, and Brandeis. All these institutions are ranked in the top 50 in the country by US News.

Shopping

Whether it’s bargains or luxury items you are seeking, Boston has it all when it comes to shopping. The Prudential Center has over 40 stores to choose from which cover all ranges of budgets from Vineyard Vines to Saks Fifth Avenue. Newbury Street nearby, is lined with smaller luxury shops like Burberry, Chanel, and Tiffany, as well as art galleries and dessert treats. One half day will be spent visiting the Merrimack premium outlets an hour north in New Hampshire. Here you’ll find great deals from Bloomingdale’s, Coach New York, Disney, Guess, and alot more. We’ll also spend time at Faneuil Hall. Not only is the hall part of history, but the adjacent stores and Quincy market house all the souvenirs you could possibly want. In your free time you might go even more crazy at locations like Copley Place, or Cambridgeside Galleria.

Entertainment

Well here is what Casino Chi (​Qi)​ is all about. With the brand new $2.5 Billion resort and casino scheduled to open in July 2019, there will be more entertainment than one can handle. In addition to gaming options, the resort will feature luxury accommodations, five star restaurants, spa and fitness, shopping, shows, and a breathtaking waterfront park for all to enjoy. Water shuttles will ferry guests to and from the Boston Harbor area. If that weren’t enough, we have scheduled a legendary Duck Tour and a visit to Cheers for some Karaoke. Cheers was the basis for the 1980s sitcom starring Ted Danson and Shelly Long. In your free time you might enjoy some world class comedy, theater, symphony, sports, or recreation along the Charles River Esplanade. For those who love to dance the night away there is Whisky Saigon, located in “the Alley” with several other of Boston’s premier nightclubs.

Transportation

Getting around Boston is easy and convenient. A subway and bus system (the MBTA) connects you to all major areas of Boston, Cambridge and other nearby towns. Should you need other transportation, many options exist from taxis to Uber, to hotel shuttles. You will be picked up and dropped off at the airport, and taken to all tour events in our luxury Mercedes Sprinter. We’ll make sure you are never left stranded.

Weather

Boston is truly a city of all seasons. Summer temperatures are 75F to 95F and last from Mid May to end of August. There is ample sunshine mixed with a few rainy days here and there. Wind is mild. Many Bostonians head to nearby beaches on Cape Cod, or to New Hampshire and Maine on the weekends, while others head to the western part of the state where the Berkshire Mountains hide cool lakes and streams. The Fourth of July is a big deal in Boston, with the Boston Pops Orchestra and fireworks televised to the entire nation.

Fall is a very enjoyable, and mild, season. Lasting from September to November the temperatures can still be hot or cold, but average around 55F. The leaves turn beautiful hues of red, orange, yellow, and purple as they start falling. Boston hosts the annual Head of the Charles Regatta in October, the largest rowing event in the world. The city swells with the ranks of college students returning from summer break, and their youth invigorates the communities.

Winter can be cold, with snow and ice from late November through mid March. A snow storm in April is not an unheard of event. But Boston has always embraced the cold and snow as skis and snowboards come out from the basements, and people head to the mountains for winter sport. The outdoor ice skating rink in the Boston Common opens for the season, and people twirl as the music plays. Christmas and New Year’s Day are major holidays celebrated in Boston as in every other part of the country, but the fun and festivity are everywhere; from Fanueil Hall to Back Bay. A 50 foot Christmas tree is donated from Nova Scotia Canada every year to commemorate Boston’s role in helping in during the 1917 Halifax disaster, and it is lit with sparkling orbs and digital light shows every hour after darkness.

Finally Spring makes its debut in late March or April and lasts until Mid May. Flowers bloom as the last of the snow piles melt, and the city again comes alive after a long cold winter. April can be rainy with temperatures between 55F and 70F. Graduation season is almost upon the city as preparation is made for students to move on. The Cape and Islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are preparing for the summer seasons as well, and a few of the braver tourists try to get an early start even though the ocean water is still quite cold.
