Things to Do in Boston This Weekend

First time visiting Boston and wondering where to go?

How to experience the most of Boston history?

Is it safe to travel to Boston alone?

In this blog, I’ll show you my personal experience traveling to Boston, Massachusetts. Although it could be a little difficult to find a parking spot, it’s pretty safe and clean to travel and walk alone for women in Boston.

Enjoy the nature at Public Garden

Address: 4 Charles St, Boston, MA 02116

Boston Public Garden is a large park in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts. It almost seems like a mini version of New York Central Park. Public Garden is near the beginning of the Freedom Trail, a perfect walking tour to experience Boston!

Read at Boston Public Library

Address: 700 Boylston Street Boston, MA 02116

The Boston Public Library is a municipal public library system in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, founded in 1848. It also feels like a small version of the New York Public Library, but less crowded and quieter. Very elegant and magnificent interiors are as beautiful as a museum. I would definitely come here to study every single day!

Walk the Freedom Trail

The Freedom Trail is a 2.5-mile-long route through Boston, Massachusetts, that passes through 16 locations significant to the history of the United States. Marked largely with brick, it winds from Boston Common in downtown Boston through the North End to the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown. Many historical events and memorial icons along the trail. Follow the brick on the ground and you don’t have to worry about the direction or where to go next, let history lead you!
