Boston is a city that’s full of history, being one of the oldest municipalities in the United States. Therefore, there’s an abundance of ancient artifacts, museums, and galleries to explore. But aside from being a history buff’s paradise, it’s also a bustling city with plenty of boutiques, bars, and a rich food scene.
The Flynn Cruiseport Boston is a popular starting point for Canada / New England itineraries, as well as tropical getaways to Bermuda and the Caribbean. The port welcomes ships from Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Seabourn Cruise Line, and Celebrity Cruises.
Not too far from the cruise port, you’ll find plenty of attractions. Boston has been nicknamed “America’s Walking City,” as it is one of the most pedestrian-friendly states, making it easy to explore. The Freedom Trail is a walking route that passes by Boston’s 16 most important historic sites that shaped the American Revolution in the 1770s. You can explore on your own or with an entertaining 18th-century-themed guided tour. Another popular attraction is the Boston Duck Tours, where unique WWII-style duck boats take you to major attractions both on land and at sea along the Charles River. There’s also an aquarium, a Children’s Museum, a variety of Art Museums, and the interactive Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum.
In regards to food, Boston’s signature dish is clam chowder, which was introduced to New England in the 18th century. Other must-tries are Boston Baked Beans, Lobster Rolls, Oysters, Cannoli’s, and the beloved Boston Cream Pie. Don’t forget to stop by a brewery, or take a walk along Newbury Street for all of your shopping needs, with dozens of unique boutiques and designer stores.
