Boston is a world-class city, rich with history, culture, and nightlife. Now that Boston’s “Big Dig” is complete, the city has re-energized itself with new green space, revitalized waterfronts, and new museums and other attractions. Boston has earned the title of “America’s Walking City” with its easy walking tours, most notably the Freedom Trail, a brick-lined route that leads to sixteen historically significant sites.
