The city of Boston, on Massachusetts Bay, has a fine natural harbor and a compact center filled with reminders of the city’s role in the American Revolution.
Boston is nicknamed ‘the walking city’ and the best way to see it is by following the Freedom Trail. It officially starts at Boston Common, America’s oldest city park, ansd takes in 16 important sites.
Trail highlights include The State House, with its gleaming gold dome, the Bunker Hill Monument and the Granary Burying Ground, the final resting place of Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. Another popular stop is the USS Constitution, the world’s oldest commissioned naval vessel.
Behind the historic Faneuil Hall are Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall Market, two of the city’s most popular places to eat and hang out. Don’t leave Boston without sampling the seafood chowder or freshly-caught fish here or at one of the many restaurants by Boston Harbor.
