We were in Boston late January, very cold but the sun was out. This is a piece of history you do not want to miss. The USS Constitution is ran by the Navy, so before touring the ship, you must show your ID, and go through a security check, (items on a belt, walk through a detector), like at the airport - but well worth it to visit this magnificent piece of history. I could not imagine traveling on the sea in a wooden ship, let alone into battle. Even though it was a self-guided tour, we chatted with one of the Navy personnel on board who gave us a little more information on the ship and their different events involving the ship. There were 500 men at a time on the ship - while 250 men manned the upper deck and the sails, 250 were sleeping below - would like to go back in the summer and take the guided tour. Only a short walking distance away, is the Bunker Hill Monument, also well worth the walk, just follow the Freedom Trail.
