Best of Boston

“In Boston they ask, how much does he know? In New York, how much is he worth? In Philadelphia, who were his parents?” – Mark Twain 

Boston, Massachusetts certainly has plenty to offer!! But, how much do you really know about Boston?? Did you know that Boston attracts tourists because of its rich history? Did you know that there are amazing must-see attractions? Did you know that you can use the My Explore Hertz NeverLost Mobile Companion to take self-guided tours around the city? Well, now you do 🙂

Boston Market

Where can you go in order to shop, eat, and have a good time? That would be Quincy Market, located in the heart of downtown Boston! According to Boston Central, Quincy Market “combines the glories of the past and the vitality of the present with more than 50 shops, 14 restaurants, 40 food court stops and Boston’s most popular comedy club. For over 250 years, the marketplace has played an integral role in the life of Boston’s residents.” Quincy Market is also an excellent place to go if you are a tourist! The location is perfect because it is so close to other alluring attractions. For example, Boston Central informs us that walking five minutes can get you to: The New England Aquarium, The Children’s Museum, The Old State House, and Paul Revere’s House via the beautiful Rose Kennedy Greenway or right along the waterfront. Also, if you’re willing to take a seven to fifteen minute walk, then you can reach: The New State House, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Public Gardens, Old North Church, The USS Constitution, and Fenway Park. Taking a stroll through Quincy Market is free, so next time you’re in Boston, check it out!

Boston Freedom

Have you ever heard that Boston was the birth place of America? The Freedom Trail in Boston is the perfect place for you to get some history about this! This trail is a 2.5 mile, brick-lined route, that leads you to 16 different historical sites. The Freedom Trail attracts over 3.2 million people annually and strives to preserve the story of the American Revolution as well as the ideals of self-determination, religion, government, and freedom of speech for all America. Tours of the Freedom Trail can be fun and educational, so don’t miss out!


Boston Dining

Boston is full of fun places to go. Oh, you’re hungry too? Grab a bite to eat while having a good time at Johnny D’s Uptown Restaurant & Music Club. Johnny D’s has received local and national attention for their combination of dinner and weekend brunch as well as their jazz, blues, folk, rock, and international music scene. Locally owned since 1969, Johnny D’s provides good food with the chance to hear “Cajun fiddle masters from Louisiana, British folk stars, or some of Boston’s finest rockers.” Stop by Johnny D’s for some good food and a good time!

One of my really good friends is from Boston and I am starting to see why she likes it so much! She just got back from a summer vacation there and she had a blast. Also, some of my coworkers are traveling to Boston for the 3rd Annual GBTA Business Traveler Innovation Awards in order to support Hertz and I’m sure they will have a good time. Hopefully I will get to travel to this wonderful city one day so that I can experience some of these great adventures for myself!

Until then, I will continue to make memories the best way I can. Summer is coming to an end, so try to enjoy yourself!
