    You can stop in the middle of the freedom trail, very good location. It is near the old North Church. Boston seemed a historic atmosphere in which Kanji is the more interesting content is good. It's good chocolate.

    I could listen to these wonderful people speak all day about the history of chocolate and the printing press. Wonderful experience. (And tasty vegan sipping chocolate.) Bought several hand-printed pieces.

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
