Signature food (did someone say baked beans?), history (duck boats have no boundaries), nature (a harbor is never far away) and entertainment options that won’t disappoint! The easiest of this experience will be the ease of simply getting a bus ticket from New York to Boston and relaxing while zipping down the interstate. A trip on a New York to Boston bus provided by OurBus is the way to go.
The Boston Public Garden is one of the best outdoor places in the city. Calming and beautiful, it’s an excellent place to relax after a day of exploring or work on your business trip. You can simply walk around the Garden and enjoy its serene setting despite the usual hustle and bustle of the city. In addition to exploring the Boston Public Garden on foot, you can enjoy the views from the water with the famously inexpensive swan paddle boats that can be rented throughout the year.
If staying indoors is more of your speed we highly suggest visiting the Boston Public Library. The Boston Public Library at Copley Square is worth the few hours of exploration from both a historical and architectural standpoint for anyone that admires 19th-century structures and history. With its renaissance-style design based on the Bibliotheque Ste-Geneviève in Paris, the Boston Public Library is a stunning building that is one of the defining features of Copley Place.
In addition to the library’s stunning appearance, the Boston Public Library is an easy check on any book worm’s bucket list of libraries to visit in the United States for its historical significance. The library led the way with many innovations since its inception: the first publicly funded library, the first to open additional branches in the United States, the first to allow the public to borrow books and more recently, the first public library that offered free wifi for patrons.
Another popular attraction that is worth visiting is the New England Aquarium. The New England Aquarium is one of the best aquariums on the eastern seaboard and worth a visit if you have young ones in tow or simply enjoy learning more about the natural world.
There is a big focus on conservation at the Boston Aquarium in addition to the visually striking and education-focused exhibits that are on display. One of the coolest features of the aquarium lies within its prime location at the Harbor. Because of its unique location, some of the exhibits featured throughout the museum are able to use natural seawater for some of its exhibits!
In Back Bay, take a walk down Boylston Street or Newbury Street to shop in the retail stores or grab a bite at a restaurant or ice cream shop. The Boston Public Garden (and swan boats!) and Boston Commons with the Boston Common Frog Pond and Baseball Field are only a 10-minute walk away.
If you are spending time in Boston, the extensive MBTA system and bus routes will connect you to any destination in the city or surrounding areas like Boston College, Cleveland Circle, Riverside, Needham Heights, Middleborough, Worcester, Wachusett, Lowell, Haverhill, Rockport, Wonderland and Plymouth.
