It’s a modern, vibrant city which is rich in culture and history so you’ll need around three days to see just about everything there is to see. Enjoy walking the famous Freedom Trail, which is 2.5 miles in length, with 12 of its 16 sites located within a mile of one another. Another good walking route is the Black Heritage Trail, although there are a few hills to climb in the Beacon Hill area. The subway system in the city is clean and easy to use and a great way to travel around to get to places like Harvard University, Fenway Park, Sam Adams Brewery and the John F Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum. Other popular ways of getting around Boston include water taxi, pedicab, trolley tour and bicycle, the latter of which are available to rent using the Boston New Balance Hubway bike share service between March and November.
We all love to shop, and in Massachusetts, there’s no tax on clothing purchase of $150 and under. If you spend over that amount, you only pay tax on the difference so a $200 purchase would mean you only pay tax on the $50 difference.
