It was a quick stop-by at Adams National Historical Park, because we got an early flight to catch.
The park was not yet open, but the friendly ranger let us into the garden. With different kinds of flowers in full blossom, the garden was a nice spot for some snapshots.
Thanks to the same ranger, we had our national park passport stampted, prior to the office hour.

First time in Boston and we took the Red Line "T" to Quincy Center, went across the street to the Adams Nationa Park and bought tickets. You go on a trolly and see three homes,
THe frist one where he was born, the one next door where he
was married and had his children including John Quincy.
THen you go to his beautiful home with all the original artifacts for 8 generations of Adam's. THis was the summer home for John Adams and John Quincy. After that when you get dropped back off at the Park Center, go next door to the church where John Adams and his wife and John Quincy Adams and his wife are buried. They give a tour for small donation. This was a wonderful day and on the way back you can get off at JFK stop and visit JFK Library. Those two things will take most of your day.

History buffs will get their money's worth. The Adam's estate is loaded with all original furnishings and very well narrated by U.S. Interior Dept. personnel. Set aside two hours to roam.

Excellent with everyone incredibly helpful from the National Park Service. See the new 4 generation Enduring Legacy film at the visitor center. Talent with various excellent actors such as Sam Goodyear who plays John Adams here as well as in the Adams, Abigail Adams, and Thmas Jefferson play. Voice overs by Tom Hanks, Laura Linney, Paul Giamatti, Edward James Olmos, and Edward Herrmann. Easy parking. Fun to walk around.
