Boston

As one of the very first settlements of the New World, Boston is the perfect base to experience the charms of New England, where the story of the modern-day United States began.

Home to the country’s top Ivy League universities such as Harvard and Yale, the Massachusetts capital is the USA’s academic hub and along with its top-class museums, Boston represents the very best of American high culture. In addition to its cerebral charms, Boston is a highly attractive location, especially in the fall season when its autumnal colours give the city a golden glow.

The quaint nearby town of Salem also offers the perfect day trip from Boston and the chance to take in the landing point of the Founding Fathers, as well as the site of the famous witchcraft trials.
