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.
Family-friendly places like World's End and USS Cassin Young will thrill your kids. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Jamaica Pond and Greenway Carousel. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Charlestown Navy Yard, let little ones run wild at Piers Park, pause for some photo ops at Paul Revere Statue, and head off the coast to Little Brewster Island and Lighthouse.

For traveler tips, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Boston route maker website.
