Boston… over 18 million people visit the city annually, making it a leading tourist destination. Boston is also one of the most culturally significant and cosmopolitan cities in America. Home to dozens of museums, galleries, performing arts organizations, award-winning restaurants and major sports teams, Boston is the unofficial cultural capital of New England. With so much sophistication in one city, there is always something to do and see.
Boston’s Theatre District – Better than Broadway!
The vibrant Boston theater scene includes more than a dozen performance venues in the Downtown Boston Theatre District, where you can enjoy top productions ranging from popular Broadway-type musical shows to avant-garde experimental productions, along with opera, dance, comedy shows, and everything in between.
Boston’s Cuisine Reigns Supreme
Boston is where you can find world-class cuisine just about anywhere you look. From boisterous downtown establishments, quirky neighborhood bistros to 5-star elegant cuisine, your every desire will be fulfilled. Cuisine in Boston is similar to the rest of New England cuisine, in that it has a large emphasis on seafood and dairy products. A must try is the New England clam chowder or a little surf and turf…filet mignon and lobster…how great is that!
