Setting sail from Boston

Boston is one of the oldest cities in the USA, and in amongst the skyscrapers are plenty of red-brick buildings, a Georgian architecture that lends the city a distinctly European feel. The Freedom Trail is a 2 ½ mile walking route around the city that gives an excellent introduction to American history, and Boston is home to a wealth of cultural riches, including the superb Museum of Fine Arts, as well as the world famous Harvard University. Bostonians are also big sports fans, and one of the country's biggest baseball teams, the Red Sox, play their home matches at Fenway Park.

Our tip

The food’s the thing (particularly New England lobster) so head for Faneuil Hall marketplace, and go in the Quincy Market Colonnade, the largest food hall in New England.
