About Boston Tourism
A true treasure within New England, Boston is a friendly city of culture and lies on the easterly coastline of Massachusetts. Many important landmarks dominate the city, both manmade and natural, such as the Harbor, the meandering Charles River, and the expansive Boston Common, close to the waterfront, Beacon Hill and the financial district. You can find various Boston luxury apartments
located in these scenic areas, with waterfront views being at a premium. Harborside accommodation is also in demand and lodging located on the airport side boasts exceptional skyline panoramas, with the twinkling night-time reflections of the skyscrapers being a rather memorable sight when viewed from the upmarket Hyatt Hotel.
Close to Logan Airport, the waterfront is home to a series of popular attractions, such as the iconic Duck Tours and also the highly acclaimed New England Aquarium. Other highlights in Boston include Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, baseball matches at Fenway Park, Franklin Park Zoo, and the Freedom Trail, which links many of the main sights, such as the USS Constitution, Paul Revere's House and the Bunker Hill Monument.
Logan Airport (BOS) lies within the East Boston district and across from the harbor, being connected to South Boston by regular water taxis and the Ted William Tunnel. Boston is also the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding areas of Massachusetts and New England, including Cape Cod. Seasonal whale watching is also popular around the coastline, between the months of April and November.
