I visited this church while walking along the Freedom Trail and was able to quickly go through in about 15 minutes. You are allowed to walk around and even sit in the pews and take pictures. There are also nice exhibits inside that speak to...More
As we were passing and since our Boston Go Pass included free entry we popped in for a few minutes. Numerous exhibits and information placards have a good overview of the importance of this place to the American Revolution. The sorry goes on to document...More
This can be taken in when walking the Freedom trail. It's not a fantastically massive building nor is it overtly impressive from the outside. It is, however, very easy to find being in the heart of the city.
An inherent part of revolutionary history which...More
The Old South Meeting is the one of the main place in Boston where many American revolutionists would meet to discuss ways to create a new nation that would be freed from oppression and give independence for many who lived in what would be known...More
Save a little on admission by purchasing a Go Boston card if you plan on visiting 3 or more sites while visiting the city. This was a neat little stop along the Freedom Trail and worth taking a few minutes to walk around, not to...More
This is the place that the men were meeting prior to the Boston Tea Party. You can just imagine the conversations that happened here. You can sit down and try to imagine what you would have done, thought, said in such circumstances. It doesn't take...More
Having passed Old South Meeting House scores of times in my youth, we ventured in with our two youngest grandchildren for the first time. Like many of the older New England churches, pews were boxed in, the pulpit was greatly raised, and a sounding board...More
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.
