Guided tours—on foot or by trolley—of top Boston landmarks along the 2.5-mile Freedom Trail are convenient for those tight on time, although excursions into wider New England are also available. Other top Boston attractions include the New England Aquarium, the MIT Museum, the Peabody Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts.
