Full of life, packed with history and teeming with fabulous architecture and a lively art scene, Boston is a superb city with delightful sights and a worthy addition to any seasoned traveller’s bucket list. Those who prefer to experience a bit of old American decadence will not be disappointed, as Boston is home to a busy city centre heaving with marvellous eateries amid sophisticated buildings, impressive skyscrapers, quaint parks and wonderful museums. Boston’s cultural scene is never ending and you can watch a show at the Strand Theatre, a city landmark in its own right, enjoy some fine artwork at the Isabella Gardner museum, the site of one of the world’s most spectacular art heists, or perhaps simply relax by the waterfront.
Renting holiday accommodation in Boston
While Boston is a vast city, it is still a relatively new addition to the tourist scene; as such your best bet is to rent holiday accommodation. A holiday apartment will provide you with the freedom to plan your visit the way you want it and the luxury of having your own space. Renting holiday accommodation will give you the perfect excuse to mingle with the local community and chat with your neighbour who will tell you where to find the most exquisite restaurants to enjoy local delicacies such as freshly caught seafood, or the best Coney Island hot dogs if you prefer a quick snack on the go. A hotel is not such an attractive option when you can enjoy your very own holiday apartment in which you can put your feet up after a long day out and about exploring Boston’s many parks, visiting outstanding museums and discovering the city’s countless hidden corners.
Where to stay in Boston
Boston is a popular destination and as such hotels are often bleak and overpriced; renting your own holiday lodgings will give you the most for your money. Whether you prefer to book a lavish studio apartment overlooking the city centre, a modern flat in downtown Boston or a traditional New England home in quieter residential areas, HouseTrip offers a wide selection of self-catered accommodation that is perfect for your family holiday and will allow you to enjoy all the comfort of having your own home away from home. And of course, having your very own holiday rental means that you can always prepare your own packed lunch before heading out the next day to enjoy a picnic at that enchanting little park that your neighbour mentioned over a glass of wine. Why would you choose to stay in a costly soulless hotel when you can enjoy so much more space and privacy in a holiday rental? A home away from home, renting holiday accommodation with HouseTrip is the surest way to enjoy the best that Boston has to offer in the most authentic way.
Boston with the family
If you are travelling with children a visit to the Fire Museum, with its traditional fire engines, should be on top of your list. Afterwards, take the youngest in the family to discover the fascinating world of science to Boston’s Science Museum where you can enjoy anything from a trip to the planetarium to an intergalactic journey through the stars or even descend to the deepest ocean trenches in the simulator. If you prefer to unwind, head towards the waterfront where you can watch the world go by while you relax with a glass of beer. Enjoying the luxury of your own holiday rental for a fraction of the cost of a hotel room will make your well-deserved break even more perfect.
