Boston and Cambridge welcome guests to the cradle of American history
As the place where many thrilling events of Colonial American and the Revolutionary War took place, the Greater Boston and Cambridge region is perfectly situated to welcome guests into historic lodgings, some dating from the 1700s. Historic hotels and other historic lodgings are numerous in Boston and Cambridge and nearby Concord. Many of these 18th- and 19th-century hotels and inns boast period furnishings, and owners who are happy to discuss the period with visitors. Historic lodgings in Concord, for instance, place guests close to the Ralph Waldo Emerson House, The Orchard House where Louisa May Alcott wrote “Little Women,” The Old North Bridge, The Battle Road Trail, the Concord Museum, and Walden Pond. In Boston, historic lodgings are near to the Boston Common, and Boston Public Garden.
