Travel Nursing Assignments: Live Like A Local – Boston!

Welcome to Boston, MA

Boston, Massachusetts is one of the oldest cities in the US, and it’s also one of the most beautiful – especially in fall! Its iconic red-brick buildings and brownstones, coupled with the extensive culture, history and some of the finest education establishments, make it an incredible place to live and work.

The city is easy to navigate on foot, or on two wheels (you can hire a bike quite cheaply using Blue Bikes), and there’s no shortage of things to do in your spare time. With so many historic sites, parks, entertainment venues, museums, art galleries, shops, bars and restaurants to visit, you’ll have no trouble filling your free time!

Around the City

Follow the red brick road on the Freedom Trail – a 2.5-mile, red-lined route that leads you to 16 historically significant sites, which is a popular activity both with locals and tourists.

A short ferry ride away from the city are the Boston Harbor Islands, which form a National & State park and are Eastern Massachusetts’ largest recreational open space. There is a wealth of activities on offer across the six islands, plus gorgeous scenery and stunning views across the region.

No visit to Boston is complete without a trip to cheer on the Boston Red Sox at one of their home games at Fenway Park, the nation’s oldest baseball park.

If you’re looking for a laid-back space with a great variety of things to do, head to Aeronaut Brewing, grab a glass of some of the best craft beer in New England, and settle down for one of their events like ‘Science by the Pint’, ‘Paint Nite’, ‘Indie Trivia’, or one of their live music or DJ sets.


Food and Drink

For a delicious Boston Cream Pie, where better to go than where the eponymous desert was created? The original Boston Cream Pie is said to have been made in Boston’s Parker House, now widely known as Omni Parker House.

If you’re after a more high-class food affair, head to Neptune Oyster for what is widely regarded as one of the best seafood joints in the city.

For a piece of local history as well as a good beer and some tasty New England comfort food, head to Beantown Pub – it’s “The only pub in the world where you can drink a cold Sam Adams’ while viewing a cold Sam Adams” since the pub overlooks Samuel Adams’ gravesite!
