Booking a Hotel in Medford, MA

Medford, Massachusetts is located on the Mystic River in Middlesex County and approximately 3.2 miles from downtown Boston. Head out for a hike at Middlesex Fells Reservation. Sitting on 2,575 acres and over 100 miles of trails this is a great welcome for city dwellers that just want to get away from it all. "Fells" is the Saxon word for rocky, hilly tracts of land and that's what you'll find here in this very scenic area rich with history. 

Take a short drive into downtown Boston and explore some more history and visit the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum. You can be part of the famous event that forever changed America. See 18th Century Sailing Vessels, interactive exhibits, historical interpreters, and the award-winning multi-sensory documentary "Let It Begin Here." This is just a sample of what you experience during your historic visit. 

Just around the corner is the New England Aquarium where you and your family can experience a close encounter with cow nose ray at the Shark and Ray Touch Tank.
