We walked into Faneuil Hall and were immediately greeted by Benjamin Franklin printing The Declaration of Independence. Authentic paper similar to that which was used in the original printing, and even the same machine that was used in 1776 was used to print replicas of...More
Absolutely fantastic! Mr. Gregory is very knowledgeable in his trade and Revolutionary history, particularly here in Boston. It is so wonderful to see historic trades being kept alive and presented back to the public.

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
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
