It’s also home to the Boston Red Sox, the Boston Marathon, and, of course, the iconic Boston cream pie. Fly from May 2019!

Summer schedule from April to October. Winter schedule from November to March.

Start your visit in the heart of the city at Boston’s Public Garden. This beautiful botanical park is the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon picnicking under the weeping willows or paddling on the pond in one of Boston’s iconic swan boats. Over 80 species of colourful plants grow in the Garden, making it a popular location for weddings. It’s not uncommon to see bridesmaids posing for photos in front of beds of roses and star magnolia.

Walk up the slope to Beacon Hill, a wealthy neighbourhood that was once home to the likes of John Quincy Adams and Louise May Alcott. Admire the picturesque Victorian red brick houses and narrow gaslit lanes. Feeling peckish? Continue to the North End, a neighbourhood celebrated for its Italian restaurants and coffeehouses. Bostonians love ricotta-stuffed cannoli, and there are plenty of pastry shops in the North End that claim to make the best one. Mike’s Pastry is the most popular choice, but the queues are long, so arrive early and expect to wait for your cannoli.

Culture enthusiast? Don’t miss Boston’s Museum of Fine Art (MFA), a gallery with outstanding examples of European and Asian artwork. The museum is also home to the award-winning 'Art of the Americas' Wing, where you can find the silver Sons of Liberty Bowl crafted by Paul Revere: a famous American revolutionary that lived in Boston.
