#24: Boston, Massachusetts

With so much to do in Boston, it’s hard to figure out where to start! Quincy Market (pictured) is a popular destination that will get you oriented with both the layout and distinctive style of this historic city. And speaking of history, Fenway Park is popular with locals and tourists alike, and you don’t even have to be a Red Sox fan to enjoy a game (but it helps!).

You may also want to put some class in your trip and take a free walking tour of one of the many elite colleges located in Boston. Harvard, MIT and the famed Berklee College of Music are all loaded with historic buildings and grounds. Pretend you’re a student for a day!

The city is also home to one of the best aquariums in the eastern United States. When your visit at the aquarium is over, spend the rest of the day walking the waterfront or visiting one of Boston’s excellent seafood restaurants.

Don’t Miss: If you happen to love tea or want to recreate the Boston Tea Party, you’ll love Tea Zone, a budget-friendly hidden gem in the Porter Square area. They even give you little complimentary packets to take home and try, but we’re betting you’ll want to take some of their full-sized goods home, too.
