Boston is the capital city and most populous municipality of the
Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the United States. The largest city in New
England and one of the most historic cities in the country, Boston is a
nearly 400-year-old city as the ‘City of Neighbourhoods’ because of its
officially designated 23 neighbourhoods. Boston is the city where six of
the most literary minds- Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau,
Nathaniel Hawthorne, Margaret Fuller, James Russell Lowell, and Henry
Wadsworth Longfellow- used to write in 19th century. They often
met and discussed their works at the Old Corner Bookstore that is now
called the ‘Cradle of American Literature.’
Things to do in Boston
Old Corner Bookstore
The Old Corner Bookstore is a historic commercial building and the
country’s former literary Mecca located along the Freedom Trail in the
heart of Boston. It is the oldest commercial building in the city and is
located on the property of Anne Hutchinson, a resident of Massachusetts who
was expelled for practicing heresy in 1638.
Museum of Fine Arts
The Museum of Fine Arts is the largest and most comprehensive art museum in
Boston. It features a top-class collection of French Impressionist
paintings, central to which is the world’s second largest collection of
paintings by Monet. Also, of note here are Egyptian mummies, tombs and
Boston Common is the oldest public park in the US. It features the world's
shortest suspension bridge under which travel the famous Swan Boats,
Boston’s famous riverine transport. You would find shady trees, colourful
fountains, and classic statues here. For those wishing to come here in fall
season, a nice sheet of foliage also greets them.
Best Time to Visit Boston
Summer season (the months from June to October) are the best to book your
flights from Austin to Boston. It is the season when you can have a great
time enjoying baseball games, outdoor concerts, and festivals. Book your
flights from AUS to BOS during summers to enjoy famous cultural events like
Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, Boston Comic Con, Boston Film Festival
and Phantom Gourmet Food Festival. It is advised to book Boston flights in
advance to avoid paying more during peak season.
