Boston City Center
Wander the picturesque streets of central Boston, passing tranquil public gardens, cool shops and charming neighborhoods
Set up home in the center of Boston, one of the country’s most storied cities. Walk by celebrated historic sites along the Freedom Trail, where the ideals for the American Revolution sprang to life. Alongside these famous landmarks, you’ll discover a youthful energy emanating from every block. This bustling city is really a big college town at heart.
Start your weekend with dim sum in Chinatown, then enjoy a leisurely stroll through the leafy Public Garden and famous Boston Common. After, you can check out the big-name retail stores amidst the hustle and bustle of Downtown Crossing, or head through Faneuil Hall Marketplace to pick up some fresh produce and connect to the Harborwalk trail along the waterfront. Next, explore the winding alleyways of the North End, home to the city’s best Italian dining. Pick up freshly made cannolis at 24-hour bakery Bova’s, and enjoy them back in your new student home.
At the weekends, you can act like a local and spend leisurely afternoons wandering around beautiful Back Bay. Feel inspired by the fashionable scene on Newbury Street, then enjoy a coffee at homey Trident Booksellers & Café. Afterwards, hit up the farmers’ market at Copley Square and marvel at the beauty of the Boston Public Library across the street. When the sun goes down, you can catch a performance at one of the renowned playhouses in the Theater District or see up-and-coming bands play live at Berklee College of Music.
