Boston for St Patrick's Day

5 NIGHTS Boston

Boston is the perfect city to explore on foot, dotted with hip and trendy neighbourhoods, modern sky scrapers and historic monuments all within easy walking distance of one another. Explore Boston Common which holds the distinction of being the oldest park in America, unsurprising as Boston is a city steeped in history. One great way to explore Boston is to follow the Freedom Trail. Starting at Boston Common the 2.5-mile (4km) trail links 16 historic sights associated with the early struggle for freedom from British control and the events leading up to the American revolution.

Just across the Charles River from Boston is Cambridge. Many people don’t realise that Cambridge is a city in its own right. Cambridge is home to two of the most prestigious third level institutions in the world, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT. Thanks to its large student population Cambridge has a young and vibrant atmosphere. Have a coffee on Harvard Square in the heart of Cambridge and take it all in.

Boston is a wonderful choice at any time of year for a city break to America,. Our travel experts particularly recommend Boston in Fall and Boston for St Patrick’s Day.

Tips from our Boston expert

Boston is very easy to walk around, but when your feet get tired make a beeline for the Boston Library on Copley Square – not only is it incredibly interesting, it’s an oasis of calm in this busy city – the Courtyard Café in the central quadrangle is a great place to have lunch or a coffee.
