I started my day of exploring American history at Boston Common. it had a really good, nostalgic feel to it, and was maintained well. I'm glad i started from there.

“Great park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Don't overlook an opportunity to visit Boston Common. There are interesting monuments, the lake, the swan boats and the worlds smallest suspension bridge to see. We visited on a rather warm afternoon and really enjoyed the opportunity to sit in the shade, drinking a cold drink and watching the world go by.
