Unique Boston Travel Guide
Boston Travel Guide Many tourists enjoy visiting New England, its countryside and towns. Boston travel guides help to make visits to the capital a memorable experience. There are several publications to choose from with a high standard of research and presentation. Boston is an elegant city and the guides reflect that.

The Rough Guide is a series with a loyal band of readers. Its Boston book has full color inserts and was revised in April 2008. Lonely Planet is another well-known series and its travel guide for Boston was revised too, the revised edition appearing in April 2007.

The Eyewitness series is also popular and very user friendly. The Boston edition has color photographs, bird's eye view maps, reviews from readers, and 3-D models. Boston is also included in an Eyewitness Top Ten Edition. Frommer's Boston Day by Day has a star rating system for restaurants, hotels, and tourist attractions. It also contains a fold out map, resistant to tearing.

The Boston USA Pop Out Maps are very useful. The book is small enough for a handbag or jacket pocket and five different maps fold out to show the attractions, restaurants, and best shops. These editions are updated every year.

So, the visitor is spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a Boston travel guide. Information within these books will include the weather conditions for each season. The advice is to go from late May through to late September with mid-October being the best time to see the spectacular golden and red leaves in the fall. There are lots of events in the city's calendar including the St.Patrick's Day celebrations, one of the largest in the world. The Parade is usually organized for the Sunday following March 17th.

Culture and sport are well catered for. Football fans can catch a New England Patriots game whilst baseball is played by the famous Red Sox team. The Boston Symphony Orchestra is amongst the most respected in the world and the Boston Pops Orchestra has entertained audiences all over the world. No Boston travel guide would be complete without mentioning the Boston Harbor Islands State Park. Family days out are planned here and there are various activities, including boating between the islands, swimming, fishing and going for picnics. There are opportunities to camp out.

The city has several fine museums and galleries to choose from. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts contains the second largest collection of artwork in the entire western hemisphere. The natural world can be observed at the Harvard Museum of Natural History and the Arnold Arboretum is the USA's oldest arboretum, open to the public. The New England Aquarium has an impressive display of species and organizes whale-watching tours.

Shopping is also important to visitors and any good travel guide to Boston will point out the best shopping areas. Newbury Street is ideal for up market purchases and has fashionable boutiques, beauty salons, and galleries. There are terrific restaurants in which to have a well-earned lunch.
