Last year, I made a promise to myself that I was going to travel to at least three places a year. I manifested hard and wound up traveling four times and the first trip I made in 2017, was to Boston to celebrate my birthday. I can’t tell you how many people were shocked when they learned it took me – a native New Yorker – this long to visit this cute and relatively close, little city. That’s because Boston is loaded with historical landmark gems and colonial-era architecture that makes it more than a worthwhile experience – especially for a history nerd like myself.
One of the coolest things about Boston is the way it beautifully juxtaposes old and new. One second you’re looking at an 18th century historic site and the next you’re in the midst of modern skyscrapers.
Here’s a look at a few spots you must see in Boston!
You have to hit up the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museums.

You can’t visit Boston without visiting this place. It literally feels like taking a step back in time. The museum centers on all the events that lead to December 16, 1773 and how it all resulted in the American Revolution. You can explore the ships, check out the exhibits with a tour guide, or sip delicious tea at Abigail’s Tea Room – which is adorable by the way.
