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?
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.
