Affordable yet Thrilling - The Most Budget-Friendly Winter Trips in the USA

Boston, Massachusetts

No matter where your interests lie, you can always find fun in this incredible city filled with history, culture, lovely neighborhoods, and excellent restaurants. Boston’s fascinating attractions include its museums, the Greenway, Freedom Trail, Boston Common, Fenway Park, and Newbury Street.

The city is also home to the prestigious Harvard University. As winter reaches the East Coast and Boston is covered in a blanket of snow, the city becomes a real treat to visit. 

Although boat rides have been replaced by ice skating on the Boston Common Frog Pond, the Skywalk Observatory perfectly showcases the city’s beauty from above. You shouldn’t miss the seasonally operated waterfowl-shaped Swan Boats; children adore them.

Renowned for its museums, Boston’s museums are a cozy escape in the winter where you can discover more about America’s history.
