Gogobot's Boston City Guide offers the best personalized guide to Boston. One of America’s historic cities, Boston is sometimes known as the “cradle of America." Find out why by walking the Freedom Trail, which will get you up close to a variety of fundamental parts of the nation's early history. American history shines once again in nearby towns like Lexington and Concord, where the first shots of the Revolutionary War were fired, or at Walden Pond, where Henry David Thoreau wrote his classic self-reliance treatise, Walden. Cambridge, just across the river from Boston proper, is home to world-class academic institutions Harvard and MIT. Whale-watch in nearby Gloucester, or head south to Cape Cod for some summer fun and more extraordinary seafood.
No city in America can lay as great a claim to the formation of the republic we know today as the United States of America as Boston can. Sometimes referred to as the “cradle of America” due to its pivotal role in the birth of the nation, many of the buildings that made up Revolutionary Boston remain some of the biggest attractions for visitors to this New England city. A good way to see all the highlights of Revolutionary Boston is to walk the Freedom Trail, a red brick path that winds through downtown Boston with stops at 16 noteworthy locations, including The Paul Revere House (home of an American hero), Faneuil Hall (a revolutionary meeting site), and Old North Church (where the signal was sent to Paul Revere to rally the militia). Sightseeing is not all that there is to do here, as many vacationers like to take in a baseball game at the legendary Fenway Park, but be sure to scour ticket sites far in advance in order to secure tickets. Tourists also frequent the North End, which is Boston’s Little Italy.
