The Most Underrated City: Boston
One of the most underrated cities to vacation in is Boston, Massachusetts. You’re probably already getting visions of wind-burned faces, ravenous sports fans, and Ben Affleck. But Boston has more to offer than that. From historic sites to the Arts to great food to enthusiastic fans of some of the best sports teams in the country, this great city is a city like no other. You will cherish the time you spent there and you will find the locals to be some of the warmest and fun-loving of all the cities you’ll visit.
The two biggest challenges are the weather and finding your way around the city. If you are not ready for the cold weather it can come as quite a shock to the system. And if it does snow it can really tie up getting around. On the good side, the falling snow really brightens up the city.
Finding your way around is another challenge altogether.
The city itself is not organized in a grid-like manner like NY. Tourists have a difficult time with this. I suggest getting a good map and treating it like a game and have some fun with it. Despite that you’re going to have a great time in Bean-town. Here’s some of my favorite things to do when I’m there:
Food, Art, and Fun at Faneuil Hall – An absolute must.
Imagine what life must have been like 100 years ago. The cobblestone streets, the statues, and historic architecture are fantastic. You’ll find great shops, food, and performance art . You have this great culture that is a mixture of the local colleges, the fast-paced financial district, and a thriving urban city. It’s hard to put into words. This is a special place.
