Rich in museums, restaurants, shops, and historical sites, Boston attracts over 16 million visitors each year. New England's largest and most influential city, Boston ranks among the world's major centers of education and culture.
Change things up with these side-trips from Boston: Marginal Way Walkway (in Ogunquit), Heritage Museums & Gardens (in Sandwich) and Shining Sea Bikeway (in Falmouth). There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Freedom Trail, get lost in a book at Boston Public Library, explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, and enjoy the sea views from Nubble Lighthouse.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Boston trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, Theodore Francis Green State Airport and Portsmouth International at Pease Airport. In September, daytime highs in Boston are 75°F, while nighttime lows are 59°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) to allow time to travel to Rio de Janeiro.
