A guide to Boston Massachusetts

If you are planning on taking a trip to the US and looking for somewhere that is somewhat off the tourist track, then Boston Massachusetts could be right up your street. This is just a short guide to what the city of Boston has to offer, and gives you an idea of the most affordable accommodation options, as well as restaurants and museums.

As with anywhere else, you are always best off booking your accommodation in advance before you travel. This can be done quickly and easily online, with numerous hotel websites offering discounts, sometimes as much as 50-70%. If you book a hotel that you don’t pay for until you arrive, then its worth noting that as well as cash, all Boston hotels accept money orders and major credit and debit cards.

Altogether there are around 240 hotels in the Boston area alone, and if you are looking for a hotel that has received great reviews from previous visitors then check out the Boston Harbor Hotel on Rowes Wharf Road. This 230 room hotel has one of the best review ratings in the city and its central position is second to none. There are numerous facilities on offer here and the large, spacious rooms are terrific for resting your weary head.

Whether you travel to Boston with kids or not, the Children’s Museum will appeal to everyone. There are literally thousands of exhibits here and range from culture and health to fitness and science. The Authentic Japanese house offers a unique look into the history of this fascinating nation, and your little ones can have a great hands on experience in the Science Playground.

Boston boasts a vibrant nightlife and no trip would be complete without a visit to the oldest tavern in the US. The Bell-In-Hand-Tavern was established in 1795 and features live music, karaoke and a great choice of food and drinks.
