Art and Architecture in Boston

Destination(s): Boston

Boston is a world-class city, which has a reputation as the home to some of our nation’s greatest schools, sports teams and perhaps even as the birthplace of American freedom. Nowadays Beantown is often overshadowed by its east coast cousin, the Big Apple, as nourishment for the freedom of expression. On closer examination, Boston is a picture of vitality and creative energy: its colonial styling and puritanical sensibilities juxtapose with modern architecture, bohemian cafes, a young liberal population, contemporary museums, public art, jazz clubs, fashion boutiques, international cuisine… the list goes on. Picking through Boston’s maze of streets to find its hidden treasures can be intimidating, as Boston’s “city grid” is more like a game of pick up sticks. Have no fear, with a little local guidance it becomes apparent that a lot of creative thought has been put into its city planning over the years, and at every corner, cattle crossing and carriage lane you can find evidence that Boston’s innovative and revolutionary spirit has never died. read more about Art and Architecture in Boston

Travelers entering the Boston Common will see Beacon Hill to the north, bustling Tremont Street to the east, Emerson College to the south, and gated greenery to the west. Beyond those gates is a well-manicured, but still approachable public garden. Lagoons, walking paths, bridges, statues and flowers galore make it the perfect spot for an afternoon stroll (or simply a path from the Common to Newbury Street). If you're looking for things to do with the kids, take the Swan Boats, and check out the Make Way for Ducklings sculpture in the northeast corner. read more about Boston Public Garden
