Best things to do in Boston and sightseeing in Boston
Boston Harbor - Boston
Right before dawn, I reached my final destination of the day, the Boston Harbor. Breezy and blue, the harbor is full of life with restaurants built on decks and some hard to spot birds taking free flights in the air. And if you plan to take a motor boat ride, I even spotted some very cool Water Taxis coming for the rescue. A blessing in disguise for a travel photographer, the harbor will give you a chance to click endlessly, while you take a walking tour of the place built along the sides specially for tourists. Last but not the least, you can also spot from really funky yachts and historic ships while you sit and enjoy this view of the Massachusetts Bay.

Splurge some cash on riding the waves. They have put telescope sort of equipments for sea watching and bird watching. You can just hang around the place after a hectic rush throughout the city.
Freedom Trail - Boston
There is no better way to start the tour than stepping ahead on The Freedom Trail. A 2.5 miles long, red brick path passing through downtown Boston, lead me through the 16 most significant historic sites, vital to the true making of America. From churches to traditional buildings, one can easily see it all in a few hours without even missing the directions as you follow the well laid trail. Unconventionally loud, with a series of events and performances engaging the tourists on the streets, the walk is travelers paradise – a true introduction to the multicultural vibe of the Boston city.

A definite boon for the tourists, freedom trail as the name suggests is a pathway which makes convenient for a person to roam about and see every historical landmark of Boston. A thick red line runs on the streets and proves to be your ultimate guide.

Christopher Columbus Park Path - Boston
Between Quincy and the Boston Harbor, I crossed the Christoper Columbus Park. A perfect day out for kids or for a romantic walk, the park is blooming and green during the Boston summer. There are swings and play areas for the little ones, and a merry-go-round for everyone to enjoy. You can fly a kite or sit in the park with your laptop and enjoy the sun, next to the cool breeze coming from the harbor. Super lively and fun, the park is a true destination to enjoy the summer, and certainly my next best destination to kill the boring days.
