Known as one of the oldest cities in the United States, Boston still takes pride in its history-rich sites and role in nation-building. It is a one-of-a-kind American city that extends visitors the opportunity to submerge themselves in fine arts, spur on their favorite sports team, tour museums, or even go bar hopping or be entertained with nightlife parties. If you are about to stroll around the capital city of Massachusetts for the first time, here are 4 of the most interesting sites you will never regret visiting.
- Freedom Trail
This almost three-mile remarkable Freedom Trail is a gateway towards the city’s proof of historical abundance as walking through the long way trail leads to several monuments and sites. Some of those sceneries are the Boston Common, State House, Old Granary Burying Ground, King’s Chapel Burying Ground, Old South Meeting House, Old State House, Paul Revere House, Old North Church, Charlestown Bridge, and Bunker Hill Monument. If you’re in a rush, you can complete the tour in an hour or less. However, doing so won’t allow you to seize the relentless beauty of what’s in front of you. So, better take a moment to behold the revolutionary landmarks.
- Faneuil Hall Marketplace
Built by the Huguenot merchant Peter Faneuil around 1740-42, Faneuil Hall or commonly known as the “cradle of liberty” is an indoor-outdoor marketplace and an excellent place for shopping, dining, and entertainment.
- Boston Public Garden
Located in the heart of the city, Boston Public Garden is the home of fun swan boat rides. The nation’s oldest botanical garden is located along Charles Street, making up the nature vibe in the downtown area. Moreover, the beauteous garden features walking pathways, remarkable statues, blooming flowers, and willow trees dripped over the pond.
- Fenway Park
Home of the Boston Red Sox baseball team, Fenway Park is one of the most daydreamt sports complexes in the nation. Touring around the vast space is quite enjoyable and fun, whether you are a sports fan or not. The park still has remnants of the quaint baseball, such as the hand-operated scoreboard. It holds a seating capacity of 33,871 spectators.
