Manchester to Boston
- 27 June 2017
Virgin Atlantic and Delta Air Lines® are now offering twice weekly flights from Manchester to Boston. Your passengers will arrive feeling relaxed and refreshed with onboard Wi-Fi and space to stretch out in every cabin.
Boston is all about the people, from the friendly faces in the city’s 23 diverse neighbourhoods to the lively lads at Irish pubs run by the city’s massive Irish American population. Rich, hearty seafood and authentic grimy bars remain popular but don’t miss Boston’s other hidden charms, from world class restaurants to quirky shopping, where a cut in sales tax means clothes are particularly affordable. Leave your expectations at home and you’ll discover a place where it seems like everybody knows your name. We’ll drink to that.
The must sees...
A number of key events in American history happened here, including the ride of Paul Revere and the Battle of Bunker Hill, and the Boston Tea Party Ship and Museum lets you relive an historical event with the help of enthusiastic actors, dazzling holograms and some enormous tea bags. Exploring the many neighbourhoods is a must, from Jamaica Plain to Chinatown/Leather District, made up of former leather factories, and featuring some of the Boston’s best dining. It’s during the St Patrick’s Day Parade and the Boston Marathon that the city truly shines, with a terrific combination of community spirit and spectacle.
A great place to watch the world go by
The infamous “Big Dig” tunnel project finally opened in 2007, resulting in hundreds of metres of freed-up urban space aboveground. Some of these make up The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, a mile-and-a-half of gorgeous gardens, plazas and fountains in the heart of the city. The Greenway includes parks that reflect the city’s many neighbourhoods, such as North End Park and Chinatown Park, as well as markets and horticulture events
