The best hotels in Boston, United States of America
Located in the north of the American east Coast, Boston is the capital city of the state of Massachusetts and one of the oldest cities in the country. Founded in 1630, it earned its place in history by being the setting of important events like the Boston Massacre, which took place in 1770, and the Boston Tea Party (1773) which later led to the American Revolutionary War. The city is well known as a center for culture and learning and boasts two of the most important universities in the world, Harvard University and MIT-Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The city projects an aura of old elegance yet as in every city there are neighborhoods that are ideal to stay in and others that may pose more of a threat to tourists, although this may be difficult to determine. If you want to trust recent statistics, however, Charleston, West Roxbury/Roslindale, and Dorchester are areas with very low crime rates. Mattapan, South End, and Downtown, on the other hand, are neighborhoods where tourists should be more careful. Hotels can be a great option as they will definitely offer more comfortable conditions as well as extras such as room service, which you can hardly ever find in other types of accommodation.

When to visit Boston? If you dislike crowds, please take note that the peak periods for visiting Boston - or any other place in the USA - are Independence Day on July 4th, Thanksgiving on the last Thursday in November, and Christmas. Apart from these, however, there are other events going on that are specific to Boston. Among them are: - the Boston Wine Expo (mid-February); - St. Patrick's Day Parade (mid-March); - the Boston Marathon, one of the main sports events in the country (mid-April); - the Dragon Boat Festival, one of the oldest costume boat festivals in America (early June). Another important thing to factor in when planning a trip to Boston is the weather. While Thanksgiving and Christmas in America are full of atmosphere and should be experienced at least once, winter in Boston (November to March and sometimes April) can be quite rigid and there can be quite a lot of snow. Summer (June to September) on the other hand tends to be warm and humid, while spring and fall are quite mild.
What will you see in Boston? Probably the biggest attraction is the city is the Freedom Trail, which goes through Boston and connects various locations that are important if you want to learn more about the events that led to the American Revolution and about the Revolution itself. You can start the trail at the Visitors' Centre on Boston Common where you can also purchase tickets to go on a guided tour (a good idea if it's your first time in Boston). If after that you still wish to learn more about this chapter in history a good place to stop by is the Revolutionary Boston Museum located in the Old State House. There you will find paintings, artifacts, and objects - like some tea dating back to the Boston Tea Party - which will help you picture the Revolution better. If you'd rather change subject, then a good stop is the Museum of Fine Arts on Huntingdon Avenue. Housing over 400,000 masterpieces between paintings and objects from all over the world, this is one of the largest museums in America. And if it is shopping you want to do, then stop at Faneuil Hall where you will find both chain stores and stalls with fashion and accessories by local designers as well as a well-stocked food court.
