Boston travel tips

1) Head to Castle island in Boston to sunbathe and wander through Fort Independence

You can find Castle Island in South Boston, and it’s not quite an island but a peninsula. Fort Independence is there, a British fortification erected in 1634 that later became an American prison. The island also has great beaches, running trails, and picnic spots. Plus, you can explore the old port there for free.

2) Learn more interesting facts at the Museum of Science in Boston

Boston is considered the American centre for science and education and hosts one of the most impressive science and technology museums in the world: the Museum of Science. On the territory of the museum, there are more than 700 interactive exhibits, as well as a zoo, terrarium, planetarium, and much more. Here you can rediscover physics, chemistry, astronomy, and biology. The entrance fee to the museum is $23.

3) Check out Boston's most fashionable hotel, where all U.S. presidents have stayed

The Fairmont Copley Plaza was built in 1912 and has become a favourite hotel among all US presidents and celebrities. In addition, many movies have been filmed here, such as The Zookeeper (2011), My Best Friend's Girl (2008), and Bride Wars (2008). The cost of a night in the hotel starts from $280, but you can look into the lobby, restaurant, and bar of the hotel without staying in it.
