Boston, Massachusetts

After visiting many cities on the east coast Boston is definitely on the top of the list. It is such a beautiful city and there is so much history here. I visited Boston when I was 12 and in April of this year. I could keep going back because there is so much to do here!

•Boston is regarded as the unofficial “Capital of New England” for its economic and cultural impact on the entire New England region.

•Boston built the first subway system in the United States in 1897.

•Boston Common became the first public park in America in 1634.

  1. Old North Church: The signal from the steeple of Boston’s oldest church triggered the War for Independence that led to the birth of America. On that fateful night in 1775, the two lanterns in the steeple told Paul Revere that the British were approaching by boat, not on foot.

  1. Samuel Adams Brewery: We went on a free brewery tour. They give you samples at the end.

  1. Massachusetts State House: The State House was designed in 1798. There is a free tour or you can just walk around.

  1. King’s Chapel: Built in 1754, this was the first Anglican church in America. You can see the pew where George Washington sat. You can also see the pew where Paul Revere sat.

  1. The Old State House: Boston’s oldest public building. It was built in 1713. The Declaration of Independence was first read to Bostonians from the east balcony on July 18, 1776.

  1. Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park: The park has views of Boston harbor. There are grassy areas, a water fountain splash area for kids, and a rose garden. A statue of Christopher Columbus is a focal point of the park.
