Boston, way to go. The way this is laid out is awesome. This city is walkable and Boston makes it easy for you to see by telling you where to go. Guides and guide books are plentiful.

Very interesting walk through time. Some of the the places that you will see charge a fee to enter. the fees go to continue the restoration cost and upkeep.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

Boston is full of history thus, July 4 is huge. So are the crowds watching fireworks off the Charles River. They are spectacular. If you get near the river for a good spot you may luck up by arriving there to wait. Say noon... More
