Since 1630, Boston has been a pioneering city, accumulating an impressive arsenal of “firsts,” including the country’s first public park, public library, public school and subway system. Today, it is one of the world’s leading destinations, with millions of travelers coming each year to experience its sports, museums, shopping hubs and world-famous seafood.
Known as ‘America’s Walking City,’ it’s also pedestrian- friendly, especially in the neighborhoods around John Jeffries House. From our home base in Beacon Hill, many of Boston’s must-see attractions and must-do activities are within walking distance. Cobblestone streets lined with 19th century townhouses lead to Boston Common, a 50-acre hilly lawn that has sweeping skyline views.
Boston is also a retail mecca, with a booming local design scene and branches from the world’s luxury brands, most of which are on fashionable Newbury Street in Back Bay or at Faneuil Hall Marketplace in the Financial District. Both neighborhoods are central to Boston’s history, and have dozens of museums and landmarks every visitor should see. After a day of sightseeing, Boston’s thriving restaurant scene offers innovative American cooking and cuisines from around the world—and classic New England seafood, of course.
Guests at John Jeffries House hotel can learn about the pivotal role that Boston has played in American history, and how Boston continues to break boundaries. Allow our Boston Neighborhood Guide to be a resource when looking for things to do in Boston.
