Boston is closer in style to a European city than almost any other city in the USA. The city is steeped in colonial history and sits along the banks of the River Charles, with Boston on one side and Cambridge on the other. Cheap holidays in Boston tend to start with short city breaks made up of all inclusive flights and accommodation. A flight to Boston will generally be run by one of the major transatlantic airlines and charter carriers. Flight time is about seven and a half hours from the UK and once you get there, the airport is only a short ride away from the centre of Boston. Car hire from Boston Airport will give you the freedom to explore.
Holidays to Boston can be reasonably priced, but you will have to shop around. Most of the major hotel chains operate on a grand scale and even American budget hotels can be quite pricey. The great thing is that no matter where you stay, in Boston or Cambridge, you are within walking distance of most attractions. There are some bed and breakfasts on the outskirts of town and small boutique hotels that sometimes do last-minute deals.
Boston holidays should start with walking the Freedom Trail, a 90-minute historical walk around Boston, once the centre of the American Revolution. The Duck tours are very popular, taking in land and water and the Italian district boasts some of the finest and cheapest eateries. Don't miss shopping in Faneuil Hall, Boston's equivalent of Covent Garden market in London.
