Study tours to Boston
Boston is an amazing city to visit as part of a study tour. The city has some of the best-preserved historic buildings in the United States. It is clean, historic, and walkable and the city blends old-world beauty and modern convenience.
Boston played a major role in the founding of the United States and today the city holds a rich historical atmosphere that is present almost everywhere you go.
Boston is also a very diverse city. It is home to many different ethnic groups ranging from Italian-Americans and Irish immigrants to Puerto Ricans and Chinese.
A red line throughout most of Boston known as The Freedom Trail, depicts the bloody road to freedom. It's tempting to let this red line symbolize all the blood that flowed in the years around the Revolutionary War in the Northeastern United States. If you follow the red line and remember to look up, you will experience 16 of the most significant monuments and sites linked to the Revolutionary War.
The Freedom Trail through Boston can be walked within in just a few hours hour or it can take several days if you would like to dig deeper into history for each site you pass. The Freedom Trail begins in Boston Common, a beautiful park in the very heart of Boston. Starting this dramatic tour in this lovely park is symptomatic for Boston; the city is in fact the place where opposites meet in many ways. There are cozy neighbourhoods with typical brownstone houses not far from the skyscrapers in the Financial Center. Neat and well-kept shopping streets, Newbury Street is recommended, in perfect harmony with the raw, industrial look that also characterizes the city.
Apart from the sites explored at the Freedom Trail, Boston has numerous attractions that should not be missed.
