Five Star Boston hotels

Home to the world-famous Harvard University, Boston is a historic city on the east coast of the United States. Separated from Cambridge by the Charles River, the city is famed for its mouthwatering seafood, world-beating baseball team, and genteel architecture. Boston is one of the USA’s oldest settlements and has a distinctly European feel, with redbrick buildings and cobbled marketplaces. This sixteenth-century settlement brings together high culture and edgy modernism in a skyline that combines sleek skyscrapers with refined Georgian buildings.

Things to see in Boston

Sports fans visiting Boston absolutely must take the opportunity to watch the Red Sox play. If there isn’t a game on, it’s still worth taking a tour of Fenway Park to learn more about the history of America’s favorite game. Art lovers will not want to miss the Museum of Fine Art—the museum’s American wing provides a comprehensive overview of American art, dating back to before the arrival of Christopher Columbus. If the weather is fine, why not hire a boat from Boston Harbor for a day trip to the nearby islands of Salem and Martha’s Vineyard. And of course, no trip to Boston would be complete without visiting the two nearby beacons of higher learning: Harvard University and MIT. The architecture of these two elite universities perfectly summarizes their different approaches. MIT is made up of gleaming glass and clean, straight lines, while Harvard’s classical architecture and mellow sandstone reflect its position as the oldest university in the USA.
