visit Boston: get started
BOSTON TRAVEL GUIDE
What to eat
Seafood (clam chowder, lobster rolls and oysters), a Fenway Frank (a hot dog from Fenway Park), baked beans (the city’s not nicknamed Beantown for nothing!) and a Boston cream pie (a chocolate-topped, custard-filled cake).
What to bring back
A Red Sox or Boston Bruins jersey or baseball cap, Harvard apparel, knick-knacks or local apparel from the Faneuil Hall Marketplace and your own tea set to throw in the harbour (available at the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum!).
Prepping for Boston weather? Get your cue from the sky! A weather beacon crowns the Berkeley Building, flashing different colours depending on the forecast. To crack its code, remember this rhyme: Steady blue, clear view/Flashing blue, clouds due/Steady red, rain ahead/Flashing red, snow instead. It also flashes red when a Red Sox game is cancelled because of bad weather!
