Beantown, The Cradle of Liberty or America's Walking City? Whatever you call it, Trinity Church reflected in the Hancock Tower is a perfect example of the old and the new that you'll find in this historic locale. Copley Square is filled with architectural delights, and a perfect spot to get an introduction to the city.
Copley Square is one of my favorite local spots, particularly when the weather allows you to kick off your shoes and cool off in the fountain. From there you can see the Prudential Center, Boston Public Library, the John Hancock tower, Trinity Church and if you're lucky the seasonal farmers market!
