Greater Boston

4.5
Whether you're a sports fanatic or a history buff with a special interest in the American Revolution, you've probably considered a Greater Boston vacation at some point. Progressive and cosmopolitan, the Athens of America attracts tourists with its historical sites, diverse neighborhoods, and rich legacy of arts, culture, and education. More adventuresome travelers must check out the nightlife in Newton or Framingham, while nature enthusiasts can't miss the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge near the university city of Cambridge. Whether you've come to mingle with the intellectual elite, cheer from the sidelines, or celebrate history, the blend of tradition and cutting-edge innovation is what makes a trip to Greater Boston memorable. Greater Boston is in Massachusetts. Make Greater Boston central to your United States travel plans using our United States online trip maker.
