Boston is situated on the northeastern corner of USA. It might be the city of USA with the oldest history, since this is where the first immigrants went ashore and the uprising against England first took place. The brick houses at Beacon Hill adjacent to the large park, Boston Commons, in the center of town offers nice walks in these historic settings.
When to visit Boston
October is considered the best time to visit this area of USA, before the cold weather has arrived and all the leaves on the trees in New England shine in all beautiful shades of red and yellow. However it is a perfect travel destination, other times of year as well. In summer there are lots of nice beaches in the area and at New Year there is a major celebration.
