Book a flight to Boston with Qatar Airways

Cradle of America’s revolutionary past, Boston is also the cultural and academic hub of the United States. Known as the “Athens of America” and the Founding Fathers’ “Shining City on a Hill”, Massachusetts’ capital is also the birthplace of the Red Sox. Fly to Boston and discover this exciting and fast-moving city for yourself.

Boston is your gateway to the East Coast – a fast-moving city filled with historical significance and 21st-century technological innovation. The best time of the year to visit is during autumn, when the city is bursting with a riot of colours: red, yellow and orange.

Boston highlights

The jewel in New England’s crown, Boston is teeming with attractions for visitors of all stripes.

  • Tourist attractions

    Your trip to Boston will introduce you to a city that has a distinct character incomparable with any other US cities. Open spaces are important to Bostonians, and the “Emerald Necklace” is a chain of parks dotted throughout the city. These green spaces provide a respite from the busy pace of urban life. Boston Common, Franklin Park, and the Boston Public Garden are just a few of the parks located within this network.

    Fenway Park is a spot for which locals have particular affection. Built in 1912, it’s the home of the legendary Boston Red Sox baseball team. If you can’t get in to see a game during your trip to Boston, then take a stadium tour of the grounds. You will find out why Bostonians are so passionate about the Red Sox.

    This New England city is also home to several world-class universities. Just across the Charles River in Cambridge is the world-renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), along with the iconic Harvard University, founded in 1636. Harvard is America’s oldest college and home to dozens of Nobel Laureates and Pulitzer Prize winners.

    You can also check out the John F. Kennedy Museum, the Boston Public Library, and the aquatic marvels of the New England Aquarium.

  • Leisure activities

    New England is spectacularly beautiful, especially in the autumn, when the surrounding forests and woodlands are ablaze with a kaleidoscope of colours. However, if you’d like to see the city from a completely different perspective, then hop on board a “Duck Boat Tour”. This is a land and sea excursion in a WWII amphibious vehicle.

    To discover the history of the city, take a guided tour of the Freedom Trail, which charts the tumultuous past of a city that was the birthplace of the American Revolution.

    In the evening, why not immerse yourself in the city’s culture by visiting the Boston Symphony, or the New England Conservatory? Alternatively, head down to the Theatre District of Washington Street and Tremont Street. This area is where many of New York’s Broadway shows are performed before making the move to the Big Apple.

  • Food

    When you travel to Boston, or “Beantown” as some call it, you’ll discover that it offers a rich variety of local produce and excellent seafood. Maine lobster – from the New England coast – is especially popular. Local specialties include baked beans, cod, and clam chowder. And for dessert, ice cream is not to be missed. Boston is an ice-cream-lover’s paradise, with an astonishing variety of flavours on offer.

    There is plenty of international influence in the city, with the North End District, for example, offering a great selection of Italian restaurants. Head to Hanover Street for the best Italian fare. You can also find exceptionally good eateries in Chinatown, Allston and Coolidge Corner.

  • Shopping

    If shopping is on your itinerary, the biggest shopping areas in the inner Metro area of Boston are Back Bay and Downtown Crossing.

    Newbury Street, often referred to as “The Rodeo Drive of the East”, runs the length of the Back Bay neighbourhood. Here, you can find a wide selection of exclusive shops and boutiques. For something a little more eclectic, head for the neighbouring town of Brookline, and Coolidge Corner, particularly Beacon Street.
