Boston has respect for tradition and presents a deep heritage. This coastal city has beautiful points of interest, making the best attractions. Here are some of the Boston points of interest:

Freedom Trail
This is a 2.5-mile red line meandering through the Boston streets. It intersects along the way with 16 major historical sites. You may start anywhere, at the trail end, middle or beginning, but definitely stop at renowned locations namely the Boston Massacre, the Old North Church and the Paul Revere House.

Boston Common
This public park is located downtown and is an urban oldest park in the United States. Basically, it was designed to let livestock graze. The 50-acre space in this park is used mainly for strolling, picnicking, people-watching and cycling.

Newbury Street Shopping
This block stretch features high-end stores such as Burberry and Tiffany & Co. It is a renowned promenade for shopping and walking (or, more likely, window shopping). Grabbing a seat for dinner at a sidewalk patio on Newbury at the buzzy Stephanie’s or at Sonsie for brunch is again not-to-miss.

JFK Presidential Museum & Library
This presidential library and museum is close to the JFK/U Mass located on Dorchester Bay, on the red line. The building has Kennedy Administration’s published and unpublished correspondences, besides permanent exhibits featuring furnishings of his Office and the office materials from his campaign of 1960.

Boston Harbor
The harbor was dotted with fishing boats, sailboats, whale-watching vessels and fancy yachts. The Boston Harbor is in Beantown and is the epicenter of activity. You can consider looking over the Harbor from the Boston Tea Party point that happened nearly 250 years ago or explores the Boston Harbor Islands network by taking a ferry.

Modern Pastry
Boston’s not-to-miss neighborhood is this Italian-American place prominent for its classic bakeries and Italian restaurants. Grab cannolis from Modern Pastry and Mike’s Pastry and without fail visit at the neighborhood entrance the New England Holocaust Memorial.

Harvard Square
This Harvard Square is acclaimed mainly by the Harvard University. It is a not-to-miss point of interest as it houses an eclectic mix of bookstores, shops, bars, and restaurants. A wonderful place to stop and buy from the Harvard Coop Bookstore a cap or a Crimson sweatshirt or even admiring the impressive architecture is sure to be appealing.

Arnold Arboretum
This is located in Boston in the Jamaica Plain section. A lovely place is Arnold Arboretum, offering all the busy-bees a break from their regular schedules and city life.  Arnold Arboretum has 281 trees filled acres and the trails have blooming azaleas and lilacs spreading their perfume, with the coming of spring.
