Before heading into Beantown to see the sights, you might want to consider whether it's worth bringing along your campervan. Unfortunately, Boston is one of the most heavily congested cities in the country, and there are very few oversized parking options near downtown. As a result, you're better off parking on the outskirts and using Boston's modern subway and bus services to get around.
No trip to Boston would be complete without walking the Freedom Trail. A 2.5-mile-long path that runs through the heart of Boston, the Freedom Trail will take you past 16 of Boston's historical monuments, museums, churches, and more. Highlights from the Freedom Trail include Faneuil Hall, the site of pro-independence speeches by the likes of Samuel Adams and often referred to as "The Cradle of Liberty." Another highlight is the Paul Revere House, an original colonial house dating back to 1680 that was home to renowned silversmith and patriot Paul Revere. After your 2.5 mile hike, grab a bite to eat at one of the amazing restaurants found near Boston Harbor.
Looking to escape the city? Discover Massachusetts Bay with a visit to Boston Harbor Islands State Park. Spread across 34 islands in Boston Harbor, this state park boasts sweeping views of Boston's skyline and unique outdoor adventure settings. Head to Georges Island and tour the ruins of the Civil War-era Fort Warren. You can also consider boarding the ferry to Spectacle Island to laze around on the beach and enjoy panoramas from atop North Drumlin.
