Boston

Plan a leisurely vacation or brief getaway in Boston and take in all the excellent attractions this place has to offer.

The population of this area of Eastern Massachusetts is around 600,000.

There are a handful of destinations in the world that are truly world-class and Boston is one of them because of sights like the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and Harvard Square. You'll also find Copley Place and Boston Common while you are here.

Escape the adult world and throw yourself into a place of enchantment at the Salem Wax Museum and Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary. Salem Willows Park and Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary are also worth stopping by if the little ones still have energy to burn.

You don't need to have fins and scales to be able to tour the deep waters at New England Aquarium.

Whether you like exotic birds or unassuming reptiles, the Franklin Park Zoo and the Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary have something for all tastes.

To find out how they make the local brew here so delectable, take a trip out to one of their brewing institutions. Even if beer is not your drink, it's still a great day out! Opt for your favorite one, be it the Samuel Adams Brewery or the Harpoon Brewery. If you haven't decided yet, you may just have to check them both out!

Speed freaks and motorheads will enjoy the thrills, spills and high-octane action at the F1 Boston.

Spend some time admiring the plants at the Back Bay Fens and the Lynch Park.

On a fine day, grab some lunch and make your way over to one of the area's pleasant green spaces, such as Boston Public Garden or Arnold Arboretum. You'll also find plenty of room to relax at Columbus Park and Charles River Esplanade.

Discover a bit more about the area at Lexington Visitors Center and Faneuil Hall Visitor Center. You might also like to visit Concord Visitors Center and Charlestown Navy Yard Visitor Center to get some insider tips from the friendly staff.

Interested in birds? Pull out your binoculars and see which feathered friends you can spot at Walden Pond and Prankers Pond. If that fails, maybe you'll have better luck at Chestnut Hill Reservoir or Winter Pond.

On the lookout for a nice bit of coast? Savor the salty sea air and cool water at Revere Beach.

Switch off your phone and give yourself a break from the modern world at Castle Island and Breakheart Reservation. Cochituate State Park and Minute Man National Historical Park are also popular among lovers of the natural world.

See the world from a different perspective by visiting one of the area's well-curated cultural spaces. The Boston Children's Museum and the Salem Witch Museum offer a range of collections that are bound to keep you captivated. Also worth considering are the Larz Anderson Auto Museum and the Hull Lifesaving Museum.

Maritime museums are essential to the maintenance and preservation of rare nautical artifacts and the recounting of the world's most significant maritime events. Check out what's left of this region's seagoing history at the USS Friendship, the US Naval Shipbuilding Museum and USS Salem and the Hart Nautical Galleries at MIT.

Step inside the science world and pay a visit to the Museum of Science or the MIT Museum. Expand your mind by investigating the wide range of artifacts and models on display. The Warren Anatomical Museum and the Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments are two more great options worth checking out if you're in the mood.

From the moment you arrive, it's obvious that the collections at the Semitic Museum and the Harvard Museum of Natural History are a labor of love. Staring back from behind the protective glass, these impressive specimens can't help but excite your curiosity. You should also visit the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology and the Museum of Comparative Zoology.

A haven for art connoisseurs, this area houses various gallery spaces in which amateur and professional artists showcase their wares. Stop by the Institute of Contemporary Art and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum for some great examples of what this creative hotspot has to offer. The Peabody Essex Museum and the Rose Art Museum are also well worth a browse if you can squeeze them in.

History comes to life at the USS Constitution Museum and the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum thanks to their wide array of fascinating displays. Do you like the sound of those? Continue your explorations at the Boston Tea Party Ship and the Museum of African American History.

The Boston University and the Harvard University are certainly worth visiting, even if you're not a passionate history buff. When it comes to bygone times, there's always something else to know. The Northeastern University and the Bunker Hill Monument are two more insightful places to stop by.

Be sure to make time to watch the water flowing underneath Longfellow Bridge. This age-old structure has played an important role in connecting the area.

Fort Warren and Fort Sewall are impressive old defensive structures that will delight military history buffs. It's easy to imagine the vital role that they played in Boston's past.

Learn about the region's spiritual side and take in the peaceful atmosphere at Old North Church and Trinity Church Boston. If you'd like to check out some more religious sites, head to Park Street Church and Old South Church.

Before you pack your suitcase and head back home, be sure to stop by some of Boston's other attractions. A couple of good options are Copley Square and Kendall Square. Also, think about a trip to the Boston Athenaeum and the Mapparium if you can squeeze it in.
