  • Welcome to Boston, Massachusetts, a city steeped in history and full to overflowing with art

  • and culture! Hello, I’m Victoria. I’d like to show you a sample of what this beautiful

  • and vibrant city has to offer.

  • A wonderful starting point is the unique and interactive Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum.

  • Watch re-enactments of what occurred on December 16, 1773, when Colonists tipped 342 chests

  • of tea into the Harbour in protest over the Tea Tax imposed by the British. You can even

  • try tossing tea in the water yourself from an authentically restored ship!

  • Next, well step into Boston’s vibrant art scene. First opened in 1876, the Museum

  • of Fine Arts is host to over 450,000 works of art. From master works from the Americas,

  • Europe, Asia, and the Ancient World, to textiles, fashion and jewellery, the MFA is sure to

  • impress.

  • Within easy walking distance, my next stop is the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, home

  • to a collection of over 2,500 paintings, sculptures, tapestries, furniture, manuscripts, rare books

  • and decorative art.

  • It’s housed in this stunning 15th Century Venetian-style palazzo with three stories

  • of galleries and the beautiful courtyard garden. Isabella Stewart Gardner made it her mission

  • in life to bring art to the people.

  • For a memorable evening head over to Symphony Hall, home to the world famous Boston Symphony

  • Orchestra and The Boston Pops. A Tradition in world class entertainment providing music

  • to delight audiences year round.

  • And not to be missed, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, located on

  • the waterfront at Columbia Point. This modern, sleek building stands on pristine 10-acre

  • grounds and is dedicated to the life and legacy of the 35th President of the United States

  • with multiple theatres and multimedia exhibits it’s sure to keep you occupied.

  • This iconic American city has given me a wealth of memories to take back home. Be sure to

  • include historic Boston on your next US-bound holiday!
