Holiday In Boston

Boston is a city of many firsts. The first public school. First subway system. First Tea Party movement (if you’re into American politics). That’s just a fraction of the rich history this town boasts. Where is Boston, anyway? It’s on the East Cost of the United States in the state of Massachusetts. When you book Boston holidays with lastminute.com.au, you’ll be transported from your humble abode, into the centre of the American Revolution. Don’t worry, the revolution has long been over and won’t be televised, but there’s still plenty of action going on in “Beantown”.

Things to Do in Boston

You bought a Boston package and now you’re in town, but what next? First things first. Take a walk down the Freedom Trail, which twists and turns through downtown for four kilometres. Some of the most important sites in American history, like the USS Constitution, Boston Common and the Old South Meeting House sit along that route. The Old South is where the Boston Tea Party was planned, but please don’t throw any tea into the harbour during your Boston holiday—that joke has gotten old.

Samuel Adams was an American statesman, a Founding Father and most importantly…a beer brewer. There’s no better way to pay your respects to the man than going to the brewery that bears his name and sucking down a cold one. Take a tour of the facility and try some (or all) of the company’s award-winning beers. Like Will Ferrell said in Old School, “It’s so good! Once it hits your lips, it’s so good!”

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Don’t worry about not spending all your money; there’s more than enough places to shop and spend some serious change. Check out the Prudential Centre and Copley Place in the Back Bay neighbourhood. Both malls are connected to each other by a glass-enclosed skywalk has and are loaded with stores of all sorts. Unload all your goodies at the hotel you got through our awesome Boston holiday deals before heading back into the city for some evening fun.

Are you hungry yet? You better be, because Beantown has some good grinds. First off, try the local baked beans—they’ve been a regional specialty for centuries, and as you might have guessed, they’re how Boston came by that particular nickname. Not into beans? That’s cool; it’s not all New England clam chowder and lobster rolls—the North End neighbourhood is home to the finest Italian restaurants in the city. You’ll feel like Michael Corleone in The Godfather when he sits down with the police chief and Sollozzo, except there’s nothing hidden behind the toilet. The food is good, though.

When you’re through eating and you feel like loosening your collar over cocktails, stay in the North End. It isn’t just fancy restaurants—it’s also grown into a happening nightlife area. Get one of lastminute.com.au’s great Boston car hire deals and head to South Boston (Southie, as it is affectionately known) and explore the neighbourhood’s Irish bars. We hope you like whiskey and Guinness.

What’s Next

Start practicing dropping your R’s and then browse lastminute.com.au’s fine selection of Boston holiday packages. Book one now, mate! You won’t regret taking work off when you’re enjoying a cold Boston Lager at a Celtics game. It’s all possible with our Massachusetts package deals, so stop dreaming and start doing.
