Boston is as complex as any city in the world—and more than most for drivers who are used to the familiar rectangular grid layout of many American cities. We could try to categorize it for you by its history, literature, education, culture, architecture, even geography. Instead we offer a composite itinerary, a cross-section of possibilities drawn from our many discoveries in this multi-faceted city. There’s entertainment for everyone in Boston, probably more than you’ll have time to enjoy. This eTrail contains everything you need to getaway for a quick daytrip or a long weekend jaunt. A route map is included and as are suggestions for the best things to do, places to eat, and places to stay.

Having visited several east coast cities, I wasn't sure what to think about Boston. After spending a few weeks there, I have decided that it is definitely the city where I would live if I move to the other side of the US. The city itself is gorgeous! I loved the history of the freedom trail, Charlestown, Bunker Hill, and Boston Common park. The Old South meeting house is well worth the couple bucks entrance fee. The history of the city is amazing and the city itself is gorgeous. I will definitely visit Boston many more times!
