Things to do in Boston


About Boston

Boston is a dynamic, exciting city with so much to see and do. From Boston harbor walks to live music venues, festivals, events and attractions, there’s plenty to enjoy. Whether you’re looking for Boston activities focused on art, want to enjoy the best of the city’s cuisine or visit the major attractions, FlixBus is ready to take you there.


Places of interest in Boston

Soak up all the history and culture by visiting the major Boston tourist attractions. You’ll see most of the major sights on the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile-long path that weaves its way through the city and passes 16 of the most important historical sites in the city - and indeed, in the United States. It goes from Boston Common, which dates back to 1634 making it the oldest park in the city, to the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown, the city’s oldest neighborhood. Along the way, you’ll pass sites including the Massachusetts State House (where you’ll also find the Statue of John F. Kennedy), the Boston Latin School (the oldest school in the United States), and USS Constitution, the world’s oldest ship still afloat.

The trail also crosses paths with the Black Heritage Trail, which explores the history of the 19th-century Black community living in Beacon Hill. The trail includes the largest collection of historic sites relating to life within a free Black community prior to the Civil War, including the African Meeting House, the oldest standing African-American church in the country, and the Smith Court Residences, which were typical of the Black Bostonians living in the area at the time.

When you walk the Freedom Trail, you’ll also come across the Boston Irish Famine Memorial, a statue that has received very mixed reviews - take a look and see what you think for yourself!

Elsewhere in Boston, Harvard Yard and Harvard Square are both must-visit locations, especially beautiful in the fall. Get a glimpse of life at the iconic Ivy League school and explore the university grounds.

There’s no shortage of things to see in Boston - and one that should definitely be on your list is the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. This floating attraction offers a multi-sensory experience including live actors and interactive exhibits, ideal for kids and adults alike.


Boston’s culture and history

Boston is a city that is wonderful any time of year, depending on what you want to explore. Discover Boston events like the Boston Tea Party reenactment, the famous St. Patrick’s Day Boston Parade, Fourth of July celebrations along the Boston harbor, fall foliage in the Harvard Yard, or a raucous bar crawl for Oktoberfest Boston. If a bit of snow and cold doesn’t bother you, check out Boston in the winter for some magical snowy views, tree lighting, and Christmas markets.

There are also a great number of museums and galleries in the city. Some of the most popular include the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston or the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology.

Other key cultural spots to see include the Appeal to the Great Spirit sculpture, the Statue of Horace Man, and the Statue of JFK. The Boston public gardens are a must-see, and include the adorable Make Way for Ducklings sculpture, from the famous children’s book, as well as the Swan Boats.

Theater is popular in Boston, with many of the city’s theaters clustered around the Washington Street Theater District, near the Boston Common. You might also be lucky enough to catch street performers, who can regularly be found around Quincy Market, or if you’re visiting in summer, be sure to see an open-air performance of the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company for free on the Boston Common.

As well as arts and culture, Boston is a major hotspot for sporting events. You can catch a baseball game at Fenway Park, see the Celtics at TD Garden Arena, visit the statue of hockey legend Bobby Orr, or tour The Sports Museum. If you’re in town on the third Monday in April, join the throngs lining the street to cheer on the runners at the Boston Marathon, one of the most prestigious running events in the world.

There’s a large Irish contingent in Boston, making the annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade great fun, whilst the annual First Night festival, a major arts and culture festival that takes place on New Year’s Eve, was the first of its kind - and still one of the best, so if you’re ringing in the new year in Boston, be sure to catch some shows.


Areas surrounding Boston

There’s plenty to see and do in Boston to keep you busy for days, but the areas surrounding the city are also well deserving of exploration. New England is renowned for its beauty in the fall, so you’ll want to get out there and see the colors in all their glory. You’ll see gorgeous foliage in Hartford, Connecticut, roughly a 2-hour coach ride away.

Salem is also an easy day trip from Boston. Famous for its 1692 witch trials, you can explore the history relating to the trials - and besides, it’s a beautiful city to wander around and take in the scenery.
