Want the hustle and bustle of a major city and high culture steeped in history? Then Boston is the place to go. A drivable destination for many Canadians but also a quick plane ride from either Buffalo, or fly out of Toronto’s Island Airport on a direct Porter Air flight.

For the sports enthusiast  Fenway Park should be a stop on anyone’s list.  This stadium is not only home to the Red Sox but is also rich in baseball history. TD Gardens is a great place to grab an NHL game.  Bruins fans are something to be witnessed in person.  There are also Celtics who can draw in quite the crowd.

Boston, being a famous ocean port, offers Harbour Cruises that are a great way to whale watch and tour the city by waterfront. Once back on dry land there are so many options for dining, shopping or night life entertainment in the downtown core. A great place to dine on fresh seafood but there is something for all tastes and lifestyles.

Outsiders call Boston ‘Beantown’, a name that hearkens back to the old molasses trade days but Bostonians much prefer other nicknames such as “The Athens of America” because of the proximity of Harvard and MIT. While actually located in neighbouring Cambridge, they are included in the Greater Boston Area and definitely part of the Boston culture.

Boston is definitely one of America’s most historic cities with all the amenities of a major metropolis along with a happening arts and culture scene. If you’re up for a driving vacation, consider the Fall when you can experience the spectacular colours of New England.

    Love Boston! I loved going and didn’t even get to see Fenway or the harbor because I spent all my time shopping!
