Come fly across the Atlantic Ocean with SWISS or one of our subsidiary airline companies on your flights from Dublin to Boston and discover all the ways in which the two cities differ – or remain similar.
Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States, and serves as a hub for the Irish population that immigrated to the US from the 19th to the 20th centuries. Featuring vibrant Irish influences, Boston may feel like home for many Dubliners with its numerous pubs, Irish heritage festivals and even a considerable population of Irish speakers. Boston is a family friendly city with so much to offer visitors of any age. Boston is a city with so much history, but today the city is equally important and very modern. Here you will find plenty of entertainment venues and local travel opportunities as well.
One of the United States’ most historic cities
The first, most essential activity for anyone visiting Boston is a walk along the Freedom Trail. This trail is a walking tour that winds through Boston’s older parts and stops at many historic sites along the way. Some of the most interesting and historic stops are the Old State House, the USS Constitution and the Paul Revere house. The USS Constitution is an 18th century warship that partook in many of the fledgling nation’s earliest engagements and is nicknamed “Old Ironsides”. Today the ship stands as a naval museum.
To the north of the city you will find the Salem Witch Museum in Salem Massachusetts, dedicated to the hysteria surrounding the Salem Witch Trials of the late 17th century that severely impacted the region. To the south is Plimoth Plantation – a colonial village reconstruction that features live actors who demonstrate life as it was during the 17th century. This fascinating attraction is worth the visit, especially if you are traveling with children.
