Boston's history is the history of America, starting with the Freedom Trail that includes the most important landmarks of the American Revolution—the site of the Boston Tea Party, Faneuil Hall, Old North Church, USS Constitution, Bunker Hill Monument, and more. Best of all, Boston's history is within easy walking distance of the convention centers and hotels, with dozens of historical sites providing unlimited opportunities for special event venues and extracurricular tours.
Boston is home to two of the world's most famous musical institutions, the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops, as well as great museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Harvard and MIT Museums in Cambridge, the Institute of Contemporary Art and many more. Boston's Theater District is located just minutes from both the BCEC and the Hynes and hosts Broadway plays and musicals. And the city's neighborhoods, including Beacon Hill, Back Bay, the Fenway and more, offer a world of cultural discoveries and treasures.
The Waterfront District, home of the BCEC, has famous waterfront seafood restaurants serving lobster, chowder and other New England favorites. The Back Bay neighborhood, home of the Hynes Convention Center, offers hundreds of restaurants from steakhouses to sidewalk bistros, all within easy walking distance. Visitors have hundreds of restaurants throughout the city within easy walking distance, with cuisine categories and prices to suit all tastes and budgets.
Boston is the place to be on game day! When the Celtics, Bruins, Patriots and Red Sox play on home turf, the whole city buzzes with energy and visitors can't help but get caught up in the enthusiasm. Plus our sporting venues, including historic Fenway Park, provide great venues for off-site activities.
