Boston is up there with one of the coolest places I've ever visited, the problem is how much to squeeze into the time we had, which is why I was delighted to discover the self-guided Freedom Trail. This is a 2.5-mile red-lined walk that leads us through 16 historical sites and an absolute must on day 1 to get your bearings around this stunning city. I loved Boston's contrast between being a busy city, but with so many green well-preserved spaces, Boston Common being my favourite. We visited the Waterfront a few times followed by the best mac n' cheese in the nearby Quincy Market and Boston's famous fresh lobster in Legal Sea Foods. If you're a beer lover, Boston is the place for you with the craft beer industry booming. We visited two breweries; Sam Adams which is a little out of the city, but with free beers and a tour, we were glad we made the journey. Harpoon Brewery was the other where we visited before a concert at the incredible outdoor amphitheatre, Blue Hills Bank Pavilion. This was a great way to see Boston's Seaport District.
