Beantown wears its impressive heritage on its sleeve.

Calling this quaint and charming city the 'Athens of America' might seem a bit boastful, but the city's 19th century glory radiates through its grand architecture, its population of literati, artists and educators and its world-renowned academic and cultural institutions.

Disastrous 'urban renewal' projects in the 1950s provoked such a furious backlash that Boston now has some of the best preserved historic buildings and neighbourhoods in the country. Compact, walkable, historic and clean, the city blends old-world beauty and modern convenience.

Weather

Boston springs are ephemeral; blink and the leaves have turned from buds to full-blown shadow puppets. Summer can get a bit steamy at times but September and October are predictably pleasant, with clear blue skies, cool mornings and evenings, and warm afternoons. January and February bring harsh winds and punishing temperatures, but snowfall accumulation is measured in inches rather than feet. Air masses from the Great Lakes and Canada collide with moderate Gulf Stream currents, making for sudden and frequent weather changes. Dress in layers and be ready for anything. Surprisingly, Boston is windier than Chicago and gets more rain than Seattle.

A Top Day in Boston

Lace up the walking shoes; any good day in Boston begins and/or ends with walking around her intimate neighbourhoods. Head to an outdoor cafe on Newbury Street, where a stiff espresso will jolt you into checking out Boston's most fashionable offerings. There's plenty of eye candy decorating the shop windows and walking the streets. Stroll through the Public Garden and Boston Common on your way to meandering around Brahmin Beacon Hill, which is thick with cobblestone streets and gas lanterns. Find the alleyway where slaves used to seek haven from slavecatchers.

Have lunch on Charles Street before following the red brick path known as the Freedom Trail. It may sound corny and touristy, but hey, you're in Boston.

The seeds of American's revolution were sown here. Pop into a few sites that pique your interest like Paul Revere's House and the Old North Church. And most definitely, pop into the tiny mom-and-pop specialty food shops that have been here for decades. Fortify yourself with another espresso (and a ricotta cannoli) on Hanover Street and chill out by watching sail boats from the Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park.
