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. Its renowned academic institutions draw students, philosophers, poets, and scientists from every corner of the planet. Famous for its early colonial history, the city remains intensely proud of the role it played in the American struggle for independence over 230 years ago. A progressive and cosmopolitan city since its earliest days, Boston now provides a setting for some of the nation's most innovative large-scale urban planning projects.

Where to stay

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.
