Whether Boston or New York, a Selection of Exciting Activities Await the Revelers


San Francisco, CA (January 26, 2012) - As the New England Patriots and New York Giants plot their best gridiron strategies, fans considering a trip to a victory parade can guarantee a winning travel experience whether or not their team wins. The team at Viator.com - the leading resource for researching and booking more than 9,000 tours and activities in 800-plus destinations in more than 150 countries - has made their picks to help visitors to Boston and New York experience their destination beyond the ticker tape.

Things to do in Boston

The New England Patriots play at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, just about 20 miles from Boston. But, the traditional victory parade route runs through the heart of Beantown. Viator has a selection of things to do in Boston worthy of a touchdown dance whether visitors are football fans or not.

  • The Boston Hop-on Hop-off Trolley Tour gives visitors a chance to take in nearly 20 of the city?s most popular sites all in one day and at their own pace.
  • While the Boston Duck Tour is a seasonal activity starting up in March, these amphibious vehicles that show visitors the city from land and river have played an important part in many of Boston's victory parades.
  • Visit the New England Aquarium to experience the four-story, 200,000-gallon Giant Ocean Tank, home to everything from sea turtles to sharks to tropical fish.
  • The Total Boston Experience combines the best of old and new Boston with visits to historic countryside towns of Cambridge, Lexington and Concord as well as Faneuil Hall, "Quincy Marketplace," Beacon Hill and the USS Constitution.
  • The Boston Chocolate Walking Tour offers two routes, each with numerous tastings at some of Boston's finest chocolatiers, restaurants and candy stores, sure to sweeten any Boston visit.
Things to do in New York

As the debate rages on as to whether the Giants are a New York or New Jersey team, downtown Manhattan is just a drive from their East Rutherford, New Jersey stadium and home to the team's victory parades of the past.
