One of Boston's top tourist attractions is the four-kilometer “Freedom Trail,” which marks 16 historic landmarks that were important during the American Revolution. The city is also home to several museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts, the Science Museum and the Institute of Contemporary Art.

The shopping centers of Newbury Street, Harvard Square and the famous Faneuil Hall Marketplace with open-air markets are worth visiting. In fact, there are several outdoor areas that are worth booking the afternoon and spending some time enjoying the scenery, such as the Public Garden and the local port that gives access to 34 islands on the coast.
