Walking the Streets of Boston…

Freedom Trail:

The Freedom Trail is the best way for tourists to see Boston’s historic sites. The trail is a 2.5-mile brick path through downtown Boston that links several historic landmarks. The 17 official trail sites are: 1) Boston Common; 2) Massachusetts State House; 3) Park Street Church; 4) Granary Burying Ground; 5) King’s Chapel; 6) King’s Chapel Burying Ground; 7) Benjamin Franklin statue; 8) Old Corner Bookstore; 9) Old South Meeting House; 10) Old State House; 11) Site of the Boston Massacre; 12) Faneuil Hall; 13) Paul Revere House; 14) Old North Church; 15) Copp’s Hill Burying Ground; 16) Bunker Hill Monument; and 17) USS Constitution.

Boston Public Garden:

The Boston Public Garden, founded in 1837, is the oldest botanical garden in the United States. The garden is 24 acres large and adjacent to Boston Common in downtown Boston. Along with flowers, several fountains and statues decorate the garden. One of the largest statues (pictured) is a bronze sculpture of George Washington carved by Thomas Ball in 1869. The garden was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987.

Sam Adams Brewery:

In a city known for it’s rowdy pub scene, one would expect to find the headquarters of a major beer company. Well, Sam Adams is that company. Until 1984, the company sold its beer under the name Louis Kock Lager. In 1984, the company became Sam Adams in honor of Samuel Adams, a real-life figure, who was famous for his role in the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution. Today Sam Adams is one of the largest names in beer, producing over 2.5 million barrels every year. The Sam Adams Brewery in Boston hosts daily tours. It’s always a good decision.

Fenway Park:

Home of the Boston Red Sox, Fenway Park is one of the oldest MLB parks still in use. The ballpark, first opened a century ago for the 1912 season, is most known for its giant green wall (the “green monster”) in left field. By seating capacity, it’s one of the smaller ballparks in the major leagues. Also, in 2012 Fenway Park was added to the National Register of Historic Places. For these reasons, getting a ticket to a Red Sox game can be difficult.

Boston Tea Party Ship and Museum:

The Tea Party Ship is a “floating museum” dedicated to the Boston Tea Party. The museum is a replica of the Beaver, one of the British ships ransacked by the Sons of Liberty during the high-tension, pre-Revolutionary War period in colonial America. The Boston Tea Party was a protest against the Tea Act in which a bunch of colonists dressed up like Native Americans, boarded British tea ships, and dumped the tea in the Boston Harbor.

Paul Revere House:

The Paul Revere House in northern Boston was built in 1680 and was the home of Paul Revere during the American Revolution. Today the house operates as a museum by the Paul Revere Memorial Association. Paul Revere was a colonial revolutionary who helped organize an intelligence and alarm system to keep watch on British forces. The actual man was much different than the legendary figure described in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem “Paul Revere’s Ride.” This is the house in which the real Paul Revere lived.
