Boston is one of the greatest family holiday destinations in the United States, most famously because it was here that the Revolutionary War began, and the city is full of landmarks, buildings, walks, and vistas that hearken back to the nation’s earliest days. In fact, Boston, with its twisting streets, still feels like it has one foot in the Old Country. Whole neighborhoods have the accents and culinary aromas of countries thousands of miles away.
But Boston is no dusty museum of a city. This is one of the world’s premier high-tech areas, with two of the world’s great universities, Harvard and MIT, right across the river in Cambridge. It’s a city of wonderful natural beauty and gorgeous man-made vistas, from the Harbor Islands to the Emerald Necklace. And Boston places a high premium on culture, offering art, music, literature, and theater at a level comparable with anywhere else in the world.
And still, it is also a city of ordinary families, filled with parks, museums, sports, and pastimes that appeal to absolutely everybody. Boston for Families will introduce you to the best family-oriented activities this wonderful city offers, and like the other bestselling books in this series, will show you just how to have a family holiday here you’ll never forget.
