Boston is the capital city of the state of Massachusetts and is one of the oldest cities in the US. Boston has a rich and varied history from being one of the centres of the American Revolution to being the first city in the United States to get a subway system. Boston is also known as a hub for higher education, especially medicine.
You can learn about the history of the great nation at the Museum of Fine Arts. See the history of America presented through art, from the Native Americans to the end of the 20th century. There are also photography, fashion and jewelry exhibits and work from Monet, Rembrandt and Degas.
If you’re a sports fan and enjoy a bit of modern culture why not take a tour of Fenway Park, the oldest ball park in America and the home of the Boston Red Sox.
