Boston is one of America’s very first cities, a place wonderfully rich in history and culture. From the Arnold Arboretum to Faneuil Hall, Fenway Park to the Old North Church (made famous in Longfellow’s poem "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere”), see the town as it once was and as it is today. Visit the African Meeting House, a center for the 19th century Black community and now a museum. Relax in Boston Common, the oldest urban park in the U.S. where men once fought duels; it remains the green heart of the city with a skating rink and bandstand. Go through transformed neighborhoods like Roxbury and Beacon Hill, Boston’s many universities, and the houses of the great statesmen--some of which have been beautifully restored.
