Jun 4, 2012 — What’s not to love about Boston? For starters, your days will never be boring because there’s just so much to do, from shopping for handmade goods and fresh produce at the SoWa craft market and scouring the tchotchke vendors at Faneuil Hall to devouring some famous cannolis in the North End. You can even get an American history lesson – just follow the red-brick Freedom Trail, which links together a string of historic landmarks.
Boston really hums at night, though – as long as it’s not too cold – with the subway making it easy for the rowdy crowds of students and post-grads to get to the overcrowded bars to celebrate the Sox, Pats, or Celtics, or simply have a girls’ night out in the super-accessible clubs.
The city is really at its best in the summer, when you can lie out in Boston Common, stroll along the Esplanade, or enjoy one of the biggest Fourth of July celebrations in the country. Snagging one of the best spots along the Charles River might require some planning and an early wake-up call, but having a stellar view of the fireworks bursting across the sky is well worth the effort!
