You cannot visit Boston without also including the JFK Presidential Library. This was our third visit because there was a special exhibit for the 50th Anniversay of JFK's election. Also included were recorded memoirs from Jackie Kennedy released for the anniversay by Caroline Kennedy which were quite fascinating and gave a different slant on the short time spent in The White House. For those of us who were only teenagers when these momentous events happened it's incredible to believe how long has passed since we all thought the world would end with the Bay of Pigs.
It is quite thought provoking to wonder how world history was affected by the assasination and how things might have been had JFK and his brother Robert realised their destiny, even now I can remember that awful day, as can most people who were alive then. The library is well worth a visit - it's easy to get to with a free shuttle to and from the 'T' station, the memorabilia and photos are very thought provoking, we stood and listened to JFK's innaugural speech, and thought how little some things have changed and how relevant it still was all these years on. The site of the library is beautiful with a wonderful view right across to Boston over the water. You can certainly while away a couple of very interesting hours on a visit.
