Our North America guru, Kathy Arnold, takes us on a personal tour of her favourite American city. America's oldest city is the closest US major airport for Brits, 7 hours flying time from London or Manchester with plenty of airlines to choose from and competitive rates.

The capital of Massachusetts, Boston has everything you would expect of a major city – a wide choice of quality hotels, great food and superb shopping. More than that though, it also has world-class arts and cultural attractions. Then there is the history. If you want to get to grips with the American psyche, there is no better place to start than Boston – this is, after all, where the American Revolution started.

Three or four days is just about right and getting about is easy. Famous as a ‘walking city’, Boston also boasts an efficient and inexpensive public transport system, known as the ‘T’. The downtown area is compact, so you can see a lot in a relatively short time either on a short break or as part of a longer touring holiday.
