Each of Boston’s neighborhoods has its own personality and things to do, whether you’re enjoying the food of the North End’s Little Italy, admiring the beautiful 19th-century architecture of Beacon Hill or watching the street performers in Cambridge’s Harvard Square.

Hamilton, the capital and where cruise ships arrive, is home to the enormous Royal Naval Dockyard. A microcosm of Bermuda, it artfully blends the present with the past. And while cars are not available for rent, you can hop a scooter and explore the 53-square-kilometer (20-square-mile) island from end to end.
