Boston food is way more than just baked beans and clam chowder. Oysters and lobster rolls are a must while in town, but a whole range of culinary experiences await.

The North End restaurants run the gamut: from traditional to modern, from those with neon signs to those with barely a sign outside. The constant is a cozy unforgettable meal.
Whether it’s high end wine, a rare pasta or a couture outfit, it’s all at your fingertips in Boston. Beacon Hill and the South End are prime neighborhoods for boutique shopping.

Music, art, science and history are in abundance here. With renowned art schools like Berklee down the street, world class performances take place each night in mere corner jazz clubs. Visit the new Institute of Contemporary Art for an architectural wonder on the outside, and inside, thought-provoking art in fresh mediums. Boston theater is a tour de force of its own, many plays begin here and then go to Broadway…
