SNG Destination Spotlight: Boston©
The Port of Boston is oldest continually active port in the Western Hemisphere. Cruiseport Boston services more than 300,000 passengers per year. The "Hub's" cruise season runs from April into November. Voyages from Boston sail north along the Canada/New England costline - an autumn favorite for viewing the breathtaking foliage - or south to Bermuda, or the Caribbean, as well as providing transatlantic sailings.
The city offers a great place to visit as a port-of-call for the day or staying before or after embarking and disembarking from Cruiseport Boston. Award-winning restaurants, favoring seafood fare, museums and historical landmarks along with well-renowned theater and music venues provide the visitor with a wide array of options. The city's history, culture and arts can be enjoyed by walking the Freedom Trail, the nation's first historic walking tour, and also Boston Commons. In addition, Boston features some of the world's most famous institutions of higher learning.
The city which dates back more than 350 years has a colonial feel. Not only the sites, but Bostonians, are part of the Hub's charm - both the friendly and surly. To go along with Boston's history are sports and politics which have always been an integral part of the city's fabric. Major League Baseball's oldest stadium, Fenway Park, is home to the Red Sox and the city is the birthplace to the Kennedys.
The city is extremely accessible for the Mobility Challenged.
