Imgae credit: Number 9 Park

Boston is one of the oldest cities in the USA (it was founded in 1630) and provides a genteel contrast to the brashness of New York.

Highlights are the handsome 19th century buildings lining Commonwealth Avenue and the pretty Boston Common, the oldest park in the nation.

The restaurant scene here also has deep roots, with The Union Oyster House (which regularly served the Kennedy family) still going strong on its original site even since 1826. Characteristic local dishes are clam chowder, crab cakes and oyster stew.
