If history is something you’re interested in, consider visiting Boston. Between the beautiful architecture and unique culture, it’s easy to see why it’s a place many history buffs value. One of the most famous historical sites is the Freedom Trail. A 2.5 mile path through downtown Boston, where you’ll see 16 significant historical locations. Including the impressive USS Constitution and the beautiful ship that sits in Boston Harbour.

Boston is also home to the legendary Blue Man Group known for their unique music and art performance. The group’s motto ‘hard to describe, easy to love’ couldn’t be more true, and is a must-see.

Something you may not be expecting but is a must-do is whale watching (yes, really). If you’re visiting between April and October, sail into Boston Harbour for a cruise of a lifetime as you get the chance to search for humpback, finback, minke and pilot whales.

San Francisco

There’s no doubt that San Francisco is one of the most popular tourist destinations along the west coast. With its sparkling, windy and artsy dynamic, it’s a beautiful destination that’s easy to lose yourself in.

Soak up the sites and visit the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Fisherman’s Wharf and Silicon Valley.

If nature is more up your street, take advantage of the one of a kind urban oasis at the San Francisco Botanical Garden. Reconnect with nature and delve in to the stunning collection of over 8,000 different types of plants from around the globe and 55 acres of pristine horticulture.

Though beautiful homes aren’t all the city has to offer. For truly stunning sights, make sure you visit the Griffith Observatory at golden hour, and head to Santa Monica for the sunset.
