One of the oldest cities in the USA, Boston is diverse, culturally rich and home to many cutting-edge architecture and innovative urban planning projects. Bostonians were the instigators of the independence movement in the 18th century and their feisty spirit remains.
Due to its early founding, the centre is compact (and easy to walk). The city as a whole is magnificent in late spring (May and June) or early autumn (September and October), when parks are filled with flowering trees or colorful leaves. Boston Common, near the Financial District and Beacon Hill, is the oldest public park in the USA.
