The Perfect 3-Day BOSTON Itinerary
Fall is the perfect time so you can enjoy the change of season, but get there before the snow falls. Preferably early November.
The itinerary pieces activities together that are walk-able, but Lyft to the outskirts. Don't rent a car, it's too expensive paying for parking.
Language is English
Currency: US Dollar
Great city for an interactive history lesson, that doesn't end with a quiz. Many places to visit, to drink at and eat at throughout the days. Also, this is an American city Bucket List must.
Boston is a historical, quaint city full of colonial buildings, history, sunshine, beer/tea and will provide a bond between you and the founding of the country. This place is proud. Proud of themselves as a town, proud to be associated with the history and any Bostonian will tell you; and the accent is pretty amazing.
Boston is one of the biggest cities in the country, but it has a town feeling.
