Things to do in Boston

Boston is only a 4 hour drive from Montreal, perfect for a road trip if you are based there. If you are not, Boston is still an American city you should go once in your life! We went for the US Independence day with my parents. It was my second time and Mitch’s first time. We love Boston and had gathered the best content for you about Boston.
