Boston’s streets are picturesque and steeped in history. While its pavements are lined with trees and brownstone houses, this quaint city has its share of modern structures, so you can explore while surrounded by an eclectic mix of gothic churches and glass skyscrapers. Walk The Freedom Trail, which leads you to 16 historical sites across the city, discover the location of the Boston Tea Party, and visit the Old State House, which was built in 1713.

Fly to Boston with British Airways to sail down the Charles River and watch the sun rise over the city. Or catch the Independence Day fireworks that sparkle over the water each year on 4 July. Visit one of the city’s many museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Science, for an afternoon of culture before heading to a restaurant to enjoy some New England clam chowder.
