WOW Travel Guide | Welcome to Boston


Boston. Baseball. Baked Beans. Ben Affleck. Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States with a rich history that can be seen on every corner. Despite its old roots, it is a modern town, teaming with world-class food and drink in every neighborhood. We go deep into this red brick metropolis to discover some of the more off-the-wall attractions like the world's largest (and only?) stained glass globe, large enough that you can walk in it, a hidden library that houses a very unique book bound in human flesh, and a bookshop tucked away in a tiny alley where you can find some real treasures. Of course we hit up some breweries and baseball along the way, so come on and let's check out Bean Town together!
