Boston, Massachusetts is the birthplace of the American Revolution and the famous Boston Tea Party. As a result there are numerous historical landmarks throughout the city and surrounding area that are sure to satisfy both visitors with a casual interest and dedicated history buffs.

Boston also has a varied landscape of architecture from modernist to neoclassical, to unique American styles such as Federalism and Richardsonian Romanesque. While there, it may be worthwhile to arrange for a walking tour of these architectural points of interest; you won't be disappointed if you do!

What vitalizes Boston for the visitor also charges the surrounding countryside with interesting places to visit. If you're already in the area, you may want to consider a tour with an eye toward visiting Fruitland Museum of Harvard, or a visit the historic campus of Harvard University in Cambridge, or perhaps a visit the world's largest naval museum south of Boston, Battleship Cove.

Boston, with its rich history is host to a multitude of museums and galleries. It would take a long time to explore all that the city had to offer, so you may want to pick and choose. For kids and fun interactive exhibits, there is the Boston Children's Museum, while the Commonwealth Museum offers insight into America and Boston's rich history, and the Institute of Contemporary Arts is famous for offering some famous contemporary artists like Georgia O'Keefe, Andy Warhol, and Picasso some of their first opportunities to show in the U.S. Other museums and galleries include the Museum of African American History that chronicles the history of the community in New England, and the Museum of Fine Arts with almost 450 000 exhibits.

With its revolutionary history, Boston has plenty of touchstones of its past scattered throughout the area, and one of the more interesting ways to explore these sites is to take the Freedom Trail. You can either opt for a costumed guide or the self-guided version, but this 2.5 mile red-brick walking trail leads you to sixteen historical sites throughout the city. Some of the sites include the historic Boston Common, the oldest park in the U.S. where British troops rallied in 1775, the Granary Burying Ground, Paul Revere's House, and the USS Constitution, an old battleship whose copper fittings were worked on by Paul Revere himself. The Constitution has a crew of 70 and still gets taken out for a tour of Boston Harbour a few times every year.

If you get tired of touring the city take the opportunity to experience a sports game. There are plenty of sports franchises playing out of Boston: the Red Sox, The Boston Bruins, and the Celtics. Certainly one of these sports should appeal to you and you can take the opportunity to enjoy a game with the fun-loving Boston fans while in town.

Outside Boston, about forty-five minutes away in Harvard is the Fruitland Museum, with galleries and exhibits in a rustic and picturesque setting. One of the buildings is an old Shaker building, this proselytizing religious community had a settlement nearby; but due to their emphasis on non-procreation, their settlement faded away in 1850.

About a hundred kilometres from Boston is Wells State Park with 10 miles of hiking trails, camping, and a lake for swimming and canoeing. It is an ideal place to explore the scenic interior of Massachusetts.
