The Cradle of Liberty, Boston, is home to some of the most historical events in America. It is also the most populated city in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, which makes it a really busy city day in and day out. But don’t let that discourage you from visiting this great city, because here, you’ll have tons of sights to see and things to do as well!

The Freedom Trail. 

We all know that Boston is one of the main reasons why America is the way it is today. Due to the inciting of revolution, which gave it the nickname of the Cradle of Liberty, the city has tons of monuments and historical figures all around it, to remind us just how great the city is. One of those is the Freedom Trail where you will be able to have fun and learn more about the history of Boston. This is also a really affordable attraction that can definitely suit your budget. So while you’re in the city, take the chance to come by and walk around the Freedom Trail to know more about the founding of America.

Isabella Stewart, Gardner Museum. 

No doubt, one of the best museums you will ever encounter in the city, the Isabella Stewart, Gardner Museum houses some of the rarest books, paintings, drawings, furniture, and much more from all those Ancient Civilizations like Ancient Rome, Medieval Europe, Renaissance Italy, and even blooming Asia. Truly, if you want to really be immersed in the beauty of art, then this is the place just for you. And if you’re wondering, yes, the museum is set in a garden type, in order to immerse you in a really minimalist setting. This, along with the female statues scattered around the said garden, will really make you feel as if you were a part of those ancient civilizations.

New England Aquarium. 

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to actually swim with the fishes? Well, here, you’ll be able to do just that, even without having to actually swim! This is thanks to the fact that the aquarium is actually a giant circular tank, where you and your family will be able to watch the marine life while walking around the said aquarium. And if that isn’t enough to make you say “Wow!”, then how about being able to watch 80 penguins live? And speaking of live, you can also touch stingrays and sharks over at the Shark and Ray Touch Tank. But if you’re more of a mammal fan, then you can also enjoy a whale excursion on IMAX in the aquarium itself! Pretty amazing isn’t it?

Conclusion. 

History is very important for a country. It allows us to know what had happened before, and what built the foundations of the country we know and love today. In this case, Boston has been one of those foundations and continues to show how and why it is one of the best cities in America. So if you’re even in the area, come and have some tea here in good ol’ Boston. 

CarnivalFairGerman villagesTravel

You ever wondered why there was a city named after one of the most famous explorers, Christopher Columbus? Well, neither do we, but here we are with Columbus, Ohio! Otherwise known as the Discovery City. It must be because Christopher got around a lot. Anyway, when we’re talking about visiting the state of Ohio, we’re often always first pointed out to Cleveland. I mean, it is a lot more famous than Columbus, but the Arch City is nothing to sneeze at all!

In fact, Columbus is the capital of Ohio, so although Cleveland has a lot more popularity, Columbus is right there with it! But what is there to do in good ol’ Columbus? Well, we aren’t going to tell you what to do exactly, but we are going to tell you why you should visit in the first place. 

The ever so glorious food. 

When it comes to food, there is no city that does it quite like Columbus. Why? Well, the restaurants here are probably, no absolutely, some of the best you will ever have! Craving Italian food maybe? Well, Columbus has Basi Italia, serving some of the most authentic Italian food you will ever get to taste! Or maybe you would want some amazing breakfast to help fuel your day? Then head on over to Katalina’s cafe! A drive through cafe that serves these delicious pancake balls! Or maybe you want to end the night with some pretty chill drinks and a good vibe to go with it? Then the Fox in the snow is the place for you. Either way, Columbus is a real foodie city just for you!

Get a chance to visit Germany.

Okay, so maybe not actual Germany, but you will be able to experience a town similar to it! Probably the only place in America that actually has a German Village, Columbus can give you a taste of European culture right near your doorstep! Built by German immigrants way back during the 19th Century, you’ll be able to experience what a genuine German village is like. With infrastructure and shops dedicated to the Germans, you’ll soon find yourself wanting to learn the language or even be immersed in the culture itself! So while you’re on a tour of this particular village, be sure to visit the book loft, where it covers an entire city block filled with book shops! Truly, every book worms dream!

The Ohio State Fair. 

With Columbus being the states capital, it would only be normal for it to be the host of the Ohio State Fair. A fair wherein it feels like the whole city will be brought to life. A carnival will be there for all those kids that want to play carnival games or go on one of the rides. This fair only happens once every year during the summer. So when you’re visiting Columbus it would probably be best to do so during vacation.

Conclusion. 

Columbus is a massive and fun city, only second in popularity to its sister Cleveland. And though that is the case, it is still one of the best cities to visit in the United States. Why exactly? Well, even without all these fair and German Villages, the people themselves will make you feel as if you were one of their own, the very first time you step into the city. And that is all the more reason to actually visit the Arch City.
