Exploring Boston

Exploring Boston

Boston is the oldest city in the United States and has an eventful history behind it. You will get a good access to the history and the sights by exploring the city on foot. You can either join a city tour or start alone.

Officially, there are 21 neighborhoods in Boston. These are Allston/Brighton, Back Bay, Bay Village, Beacon Hill, Charlestown, Chinatown/Leather District, Dorchester, Downtown/Financial District, East Boston, Fenway/Kenmore, Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Mission Hill, North End, Roslindale, Roxbury, South Boston, South End, West End and West Roxbury.


The city offers many restaurants with very different cuisines, such as Chinese, Italian, Japanese or typical local New England cuisine. The latter is very hearty and full-bodied. Lobster is a specialty for Boston’s gourmets, and Clam Chowder is a creamy fish soup, the most famous recipe in New England cuisine. In the spirit of the English settlers who settled here in the 16th century, many English classics can be found on the menus of restaurants: Boston Baked Beans or New England Boiled Dinners are just a few examples.
