Your Boston vacation

This city has bragging rights as the oldest of many things, but there’s more to Boston than first meets the eye. With a history dating back to the 17th century, the Athens of America is also home to cutting-edge museums, skyscrapers and infamous Harvard Square.

Take in the rejuvenated Boston Harbor by foot or hop a boat to the city’s islands. Watch a world-series team play baseball. Chow on fresh seafood or tour a local brewery. Marvel world-famous art collections (Museum of Fine Arts, ICA) or walk a historic trail.

Whatever you choose on your Boston vacation, let Orbitz guide you with the best time to go, top 10 highlights and insider gems.

Best time to take a vacation to Boston

For the quintessential Boston vacation, early fall delivers in every way: Gorgeous fall foliage, cool temperatures, rowing regattas -- like the nation’s largest Head of the Charles celebration -- Thanksgiving dinner and hot toddies. If you don’t mind cold temperatures and snow, visit in winter when some hotels offer deeper discounts.

Spring is beautiful with blossoming trees, baseball at Fenway Park, Patriots Day and the annual Boston Marathon. Temperate weather is typical but often accompanied by rain through mid-June. Summers may be hot and humid, but there’s something special about a Boston summer vacation, especially over the 4th of July.
