Boston — With a resurgent fine-dining scene, an array of top-notch shopping options and a nightlife mix that ranges from raucous to refined, Beantown's savvy present is just as appealing as its storied past. Although deeply rooted in history, Boston is a cosmopolitan city that is equally appealing for a family-friendly learning adventure, a full-on college party weekend or an elegant adults-only getaway.

Why Go

For colonial American history, diverse and inviting neighborhoods, and sports crazes from the Red Sox to college hockey.
