Magnificent Boston

Boston stands tall as a relaxed and refined city that’s proud of its heritage.

A Boston holiday is the ideal starting point for a New England adventure. The narrow streets and red-brick houses of Beacon Hill give a real sense of the city’s past. And Boston has plenty of history – after all, this is where it all began for American democracy.

The dramatic changes in the seasons means there’s always a reason to catch a cheap flight to Boston. Glorious summer days lazing on the beach contrast with winter sport action. Don’t miss the fall either, with all the craziness of Halloween and a spectacular display of foliage
