A holiday in Boston has that great mix of fine foods, luxury hotels and lots and lots of history. The destination of the first colonial settlement of the Puritans from England brings you an authentic experience in the USA. Your trip to the famed ‘City on a Hill’ – as governor John Winthrop once sermonised upon the Arabella – has so much to offer. With a vast array of museums and galleries, bookshops and legendary sports franchises, you’ll really get an understanding of why this city is so great.

Luxury Holidays in Boston

Your Boston holidays will envelop you in a high level of luxury. With exclusive hotels and spas, intermixed with a bustling and lively city life, you’ll experience both sides of this wonderful municipality.

Imagine a quick treatment in the local spa before tucking into some green eggs and ham and heading out to Fenway Park to see the Red Sox battle for baseball glory! Not a sports fan? Well there’s a lot to experience from the sublime sounds of the Boston Symphony Orchestra to the fine artworks located at the Institute of Contemporary Art.

Things to do on holiday in Boston 

Re-enact history at the Boston Tea Party Ships and Musuem. Voted Best New Musuem, its holographic displays and immersive live action bring Boston's revolutionary past to the fore. Not to be missed.

Along with the many museums and galleries on offer, Boston is also the world famous home of leading sports teams such as the Celtics (NBA), Patriots (NFL) and Red Sox (MLB). To experience what makes America - and this city - tick, you need to discover the atmosphere around one of these teams by checking out a game.

At the Boston Symphony Orchestra, founded in 1881, why not treat yourself to the latest classical performance. You could be lucky and experience Mozart, Prokofiev or Bartók. Remember to check out the listings before you book.

At the Institute of Contemporary Art, the works of up and coming local artists are displayed together with international pieces. Meanwhile, along with more modernist pieces, the Museum of Fine Arts contains historical collections of the Americas, Asia and Europe, making it a leading cultural attraction in the city.

Go on a Whale Watching tour. Hop on board a highspeed catamaran and set sail for whales. See humpbacks, finbacks and minckes on a narrated tour. Humpbacks average 50 feet in length and can weigh a whopping 37 tonnes. 

Boston Facts

  • State – Massachusetts
  • Area – 89 sq miles
  • Population – 636,000

Weather

Its coastal position on the North Atlantic makes Boston susceptible to Nor’easter weather systems and subsequent rain and snow in the winter months (December – March), but snow is more likely further inland away from the city. Overall, Boston has a continental climate. The hottest month is July which enjoys an average temperature of 23°C. Temperatures have been known to exceed 32°C in summer.

Twin Centre & Multi Centre

Why not combine your trip to Boston with visits to other fantastic cities along the east coast? New York and Washington DC are great options for a twin or multi centre holiday. Chicago, a little further inland, is another cosmopolitan centre that would certainly benefit from being experienced alongside similarly exciting and rewarding city breaks.
