Quaint cobbled streets, a concentration of historic sites (and pubs), a fine selection of museums and proximity to major universities (and rural retreats) make Boston the destination of choice for those after culture, class and clam chowder.
See Boston's wild side on a visit to the Franklin Park Zoo, where the attractions include flamboyant mandrills, limber gorillas, aloof lions at "Kalahari Kingdom" and pacing tigers in Tiger Tales. Give a nod to graceful giraffes, take the young ones to the Franklin Farm, where family-friendly animals can be touched and chase flitting butterflies in Butterfly Landing when it's open in summer. Educational programs and other zoo-related events run year-round, check the calendar for dates.
