Why Visit Boston
The birthplace of the American Revolution, Boston is rife with historical sites of interest, such as the Freedom Trail, the USS Constitution, and Paul Revere’s House. Boston travel goes beyond history, too—namely its flourishing neighborhoods, trendy shops, diverse culinary hotspots, and thriving sports scene.
When to Visit Boston
There’s no wrong time to visit Boston, but there are more crowded times. In summer, you'll face more tourists and steeper hotel rates. In fall, you’ll contend with students returning to this college-centric city. Weekends around graduation are pricey as well. If you can stand the cold, winter travel offers big savings.
Boston weather is wildly unpredictable. The average high temperature is 37 degrees Fahrenheit in January with a chance of snow December through March. Summers get humid, with temperatures lingering at 80 and above. Spring and fall bring more mild temperatures. A little rain is normal year-round.
