5 Places to visit in Boston

Size can be deceiving, a statement that certainly holds true for the small city of Boston. Despite of occupying a small area when compared to other major American cities, Boston boasts of diverse range of attractions that are enough to bring most big cities to shame. Famous for playing an important role in the American Revolution that happened during the 1770s, Boston has quickly become a tourist hotspot offering the perfect blend of history, art, and natural beauty.

Growing up in southern New Hampshire, I rooted for the Boston Red Sox. Most New England schoolchildren in the 1970s and 1980s knew the names of big hitters such as Carl Yastrzemski and Wade Boggs, catcher Carlton Fisk, and pitcher Roger Clemens. My parents weren’t huge sports fans, but every once in a while we’d make the one-hour drive to Boston to catch a summer game at historic Fenway Park.
