Discover Fun Things to Do in Boston

With its unique mix of colonial history and fresh, cosmopolitan excitement, Boston offers an endless list of things to see and do for visitors of all ages. And our hotel’s location in the exclusive Back Bay neighborhood puts you right in the heart of it all.

The funny thing is, if you ask the locals what their favorite thing about the city is, it’s likely you’ll get 20 different answers. One person may insist that you start your tour by walking the Freedom Trail and then having lunch in the North End or at the Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Outdoorsy folks would suggest a Boston Duck Tour and cultured types would send you straight to the Isabella Gardner Museum. If you’ve got the kids with you, check out the Children’s Museum and the New England Aquarium. Sports nuts, of course, would point you straight toward Fenway Park—the world-famous home of the Boston Red Sox. And no trip would be complete without a bit of retail therapy. Good thing Boston is a shopper’s paradise. Don’t miss the boutiques on nearby Newbury Street and the exclusive Copley Place.

It goes without saying that if you’re unsure of how to fill your day from our list of attractions, just ask our hotel staff for suggestions and they’ll be happy to help you create your ideal vacation. Keep in mind that there’s so much to see in our fair city—you may come back to Boston more times than you anticipated!
