Boston is one of America’s oldest cities, booming with culture, history, and mystery dating back to the 1600’s. The city built on a hill, and often referred to as the Cradle of Liberty, will leave history buffs, foodies, naturists, and sports fans alike with a pure taste of satisfaction.
The city center is downtown on a peninsula, bordering the Boston Harbor. The Boston Harbor may sound familiar because of the infamous Boston Tea Party, a political protest that birthed the phrase “no taxation without representation.” Boston Common, a 50 acre park, starts the beginning of the Freedom Trail, which is a tour of Boston’s most famous historic sites.
The Irish make up almost a quarter of the Boston’s total population, which is no surprise since Boston is home to one of the largest St. Paddy’s Day parades in the country. The city also hosts the Boston Marathon, Harpoon Octoberfest, and Boston Harborfest.
With events year round and an infinite amount of rich history, Boston is a must on your visit to the northeastern United States.
