Take a walk through the pages of American history

Boston is a city for walkers. Take a stroll around the historic, gas-lit neighbourhood of Beacon Hill. Then pick up the Freedom Trail, a line of red dots on the sidewalk that will lead you through 200 years of history and past several revolutionary sites, including the church steeple where Paul Revere hung his lanterns to warn of the impending British invasion.

‘God made Boston on a wet Sunday,’ wrote Raymond Chandler, which might explain why the city also has so many excellent museums. In affluent Back Bay, there’s the Museum of Fine Arts and the unique Isabella Stewart Gardner, a Venetian mansion groaning with treasures from Rembrandts to Rubens that were collected by this 19th-century society queen and philanthropist. 

Two worthy but very different waterfront attractions include the Aquarium and the powerful Kennedy Museum housed in IM Pei’s striking building. And if time allows, ride ‘The T’ subway to Cambridge on the north bank of the Charles River to explore the prestigious Harvard campus and one or two of its museums. Pick of the collections would include the 800 species of flowers beautifully crafted from glass in the Botanical Museum, and the Islamic art in the Sackler Gallery.
