Boston Travel guide

You can explore the city on foot and don’t worry about it, you won’t be exhausted as it is a remarkably compact city and it can be experienced within a day or two. Its labyrinthine streets will delight the walker, but it will push drivers over the edge. An hour's stroll will take you from sites in the North End to Beacon Hill's mansions. If you want a day’s tour start with the Boston Common, in the morning, tour a Back Bay Victorian in the afternoon, and in the evening dine on Szechuan seafood in Chinatown or gnocchi in the North End or follow the Freedom Trail -- a self-guiding walking tour of famous American [...]
