Enjoy Boston on a Budget

When it comes to cities in the United States of America, not many can come close to the rich history that Boston has to offer. With countless American Revolution sites strewn across its varied districts, it’s bound to fascinate and captivate visitors. On top of this it boasts an incredible variety of delicious cuisines, including some of the best seafood in the country, as well as many contemporary attractions and exceptional shopping opportunities.

Things to see in Boston

Boston offers plenty of things to do and see for those visiting on a budget. The Freedom Trail is a 2.5-mile self-guided walk through the historic American Revolution sites of Boston that can’t be missed. Starting at Boston Common, it winds its way through the city and ends at the Bunker Hill Monument, where you’re rewarded with incredible views over the city. Take a stroll around the quaint, cobblestone streets of North End (or as it’s known locally, “Little Italy”). You’ll find incredible Italian restaurants, shops and more, as well as gorgeous architecture. While you’re here, it’s worth visiting the Old North Church, which is famous as it was where the message was sent that the “British are coming”. Beer lovers shouldn’t miss a visit to the Samuel Adams Brewery. You can take a free tour here (with complimentary tastings at the end) to learn all about its history and production.

You can expect a decent complimentary breakfast to start the day, as well as free WiFi for staying connected while you’re away.
