John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum

President John F. Kennedy's memory is sacred in the minds of many Americans. John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum, a glass pavilion designed by Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei, is dedicated to his memory. Visitors are transported back to the darkest days of the Cold War. A short film recounts JFK's deeds in his own words while the authentic photos and exhibits evoke the brief period in White House history that nostalgic Americans refer to as "the days of Camelot".

Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum

One of the most well known incidents of the American Revolution was the Boston Tea party where shiploads of tea were thrown into the sea to protest against the British taxes. The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum allows guests to relive this incident with costumed tour guides telling the story of the war with paintings and historic artifacts and even reenactments. Visitors can board the ships and dump tea crates into the sea. Each aspect of the historical event, as well as the aftermath is covered in this museum, making it a must stop for keen guests.

Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston

Serving the community since 1936, ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) has been among the first in the city to debut works by impressive artists from Picasso to Warhol. Since its 2006 move to the architecturally stunning new harbor front site, the museum has continued its impressive exhibits of cutting edge of contemporary art in Boston. The facility now houses an amazing permanent collection rife with paintings and video installations, as well as traveling exhibitions showcasing the hottest talents from around the world. ICA is also home to a year-round program of dance, theater and film, and it also sponsors educational programs and off-site art installations and events throughout the community.

Arnold Arboretum

Arnold Arboretum, a botanical garden, located in Jamaica Plain, is the crown jewel in Frederick Law Olmsted's Emerald Necklace, which is the chain of Boston parks that he created. The manicured grounds, under the management of Harvard University, are filled with exotic flora that are tagged with species and genus names for the eager amateur botanist. The annual 'Lilac Sunday' during the second week of May draws thousands of visitors to enjoy the beauty of over 500 lilac bushes.

Jamaica Pond

This large pond was carved out by glaciers during the last Ice Age. Unusually deep and cold, Jamaica Pond is linked via underground channels to other bodies of water along the Jamaicaway. The park features one path for walkers and runners and another path for cyclists. During the summer months, you can rent a rowboat or sailboat, or you can fish for trout, bass, salmon and perch. Besides these activities, city folks also flock to Jamaican Pond for theater performances, concerts and children programs.

Massachusetts Archives & Commonwealth Museum

Commonwealth Museum exhibits some interesting documents and legal records belonging to the State. The museum's education department offers lectures encouraging the use of material from the archives. A special exhibit entitled 'Highway to the Past' is dedicated to the archeology of the Big Dig. Many of the artifacts uncovered during the digging are also on display.
