If your image of Boston is ivy league schools and historical monuments, that's a good start... but Boston is so much more.

Like many Northeast US cities, Boston is a sprawling metropolis made up of small, culturally diverse neighborhoods.

With shops and restaurants from Chinatown to Boston's Little Italy, visitors can spend an entire summer sampling an international array of cuisines at Boston street fairs scheduled throughout the season, topped off with an end of summer fling at the Cambridge Carnival.

Although supported by a complex of urban transit, Boston is nevertheless best seen by foot (also see: Boston's Irish Heritage Trail) with tours of neighborhoods ranging from the gaslight lantern-lined streets of Beacon Hill to working class Dorchester.

Boston's Downtown area, however, is where most tourists begin their exploration of this former Revolutionary hotbed with stops at Faneuil Hall, the Freedom Trail, Boston Public Garden, and Boston Common.

Elsewhere around town, baseball fans can pay homage to the Boston Red Sox at historic Fenway Park, while beer aficionados can quench their thirst with a tour of the original Sam Adams brewery.

With more time available, day or weekend trips from Boston might also include nearby attractions like Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, or whale watching trips just off the coast.
