Boston is the ultimate combination of sports and American history. Boston fans are passionate about sports. Home to the NFL's Patriots, MLB's Red Sox, NHL's Bruins and the winningest basketball team in history, the Celtics - there is a lot to be passionate about.
Bostonians are proud of their history, the city is one of the oldest in the country, you can hardly walk a step over its cobblestone streets without running into some historic site. The Freedom Trail winds its way around the city centre, connecting 16 historically significant sites, from the country's oldest public park to a Revolutionary War battle site. These are the very places where history unfolded, especially the events leading to the American fight for independence from Britain.
Boston is also home to prestigious academic institutions such as Harvard and MIT. A day spend wandering the campus of Harvard and around Harvard Square is a day well spent, while less than a couple of hours away is one of the top basketball attractions in the USA - the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.
Games are readily available for Australian school teams throughout Boston and Massachusetts, with plenty of hoops on offer and plenty of sports and history sights, Boston is a fantastic stop on any USA Tour.
