I am a native New Englander and I love the city of Boston. As far as I am concerned these are the top ten things to do in Boston. Please feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments section below as Boston is a great and diverse city full of fun things to enjoy.

  4. Go to a Boston Bruins Hockey Game (Seasonal)
  5. Go to a Boston Red Sox Baseball Game (or Tour Historic Fenway Park)

Many Great Things to Do and See in Historic Boston

Boston is an always has been a great city to visit. The harbor and waterfront offers daily cruises and the joys of the seashore. The marketplace offers all the hustle and bustle of great shopping and fun eating in a great open space to enjoy in and around Fanueil Hall. You can’t help but notice the historic feel of the city from the cobblestones, courtyards, and landmarks. The transportation system (subway and buses) allow you to avoid all of the hassle of getting from place to place quickly and safely without the traffic. Park at one of the outlying stations for cheap money and take the ‘T’ in to the city for a great day of fun!

Planning a Great Day in Boston

It would be obviously impossible to do everything on the list in one day but there is no reason not to pick a few things to do and visit the city during several different seasons to enjoy whichever parts are best seen at that time. Summertime is great for baseball and the Red Sox, cruises from Rowe’s Wharf, and whale watching tours or performances at the New England Aquarium. Winter brings Boston Bruins hockey (and don’t miss the Beanpot Tournament in February!). In the fall you might catch the Red Sox if they’re in the pennant race or spend the evening in the theatre district for a night of great entertainment after lunch and shopping at Fanueil Hall.

I hope you enjoy your visit to Boston and please share your favorite spots in the comments below!

All Inclusive Ski Holidays

5 Star Vacations for 1 Star Prices
To find the best deal on all inclusive ski holidays as always it comes down to the best snow available for the time of year. Some years the Northeast has the best snow, sometimes it’s out west. Sometimes it’s hard to find good snow at all. What will this year bring to the mountains? Regardless of the forecasts, snow enthusiasts all over the country are right now actively searching for the best all inclusive ski holidays to buy.

Ski Holidays in Utah

Known the world of cinema as a getaway for Hollywood ski-bums and wannabees, ski holidays in Utah feature great times on the slopes and hot tub deals in the chalets. Popular destinations include Park City and Deer Valley as well as others in the Wasatch Mountains – selected for the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002. More than a dozen resorts and ski areas are within short driving distance of major-metro airport and hotel accomodations in Salt Lake City although if you really want to get away from it all you want the all inclusive ski holiday at the resorts themselves. Saves the hassle of finding a ride home from the party, right?

Ski Holidays in Colorado

Arguably the best quality snow in the country is found at legendary destinations such as Vail, Breckenridge, and Aspen. Colorado has long been known as a great place for light, fluffy snow. Deep splashy powder makes for great skiing and that classic look of skiiers waist deep shooshing down pristine slopes. Lifestyle and party atmosphere can’t be missed as well with world-class establishments designed to soothe the weary body after an amazing day of skiing.

Ski Holidays in Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe. Who can resist the lure of spring skiing, hard-bodies in bikinis (or less!), and the unbeatable combination of packed powder and sunshine? Many a Southern Californian makes the annual trek up to Tahoe for good times, sight-seeing (and I don’t mean mountains… or maybe I do!), and hard-core partying. Oh – and we might strap on a pair of skis once in a while to get a close up view of nature’s beauty.

Ski Holidays in NH

Who Can Resist the Lure of All Inclusive Ski Holidays?

Raw, untamed and pure, the skiing in NH remains as conistent as the sun rising in the morning. New Englanders and weekend warriors from New York and Connecticut make their annual pilgramages to the great slopes of New Hampshire. Old favorites Bretton Woods (seated by the majestic Mount Washington Hotel) provide a wide variety of skiing experiences while old friends Waterville Valley enter their second year under new ownership. And for those looking for adventure off the beaten path, there’s always Tuckerman’s Ravine :)

Ski Holidays in Vermont

Last but not least we look at ski holidays in Vermont. Who can forget the slopes of Stowe where the world famous Von Trapp family (of The Sound of Music fame) eventually settled? Settle in at the Trapp family lodge in Stowe for as part of one of your all inclusive ski holidays and you certainly won’t regret it. You also can’t leave Vermont without trying to tame the majestic slopes of Killington either. Straight shot up the interstate and before you know it you’re unpacked and ready to get in the gondola and go!
