Boston

Today I had a chance to take a long lunch break. As I’ve mentioned before, I absolutely love Boston. It seems there’s a historical place around every corner. I also feel as if I can see the entire world go by if I stand still and just people watch for a while. Walking around Downtown Boston is great and I should do it more often.

Today for an hour and a half I became a tourist. Here’s my photo report 🙂

The Rose Kennedy Greenway – 1.5 mile string of parks with a carousel, grassy areas & rotating contemporary art exhibitions.
Quincy Market & Faneuil Hall Marketplace
The Old State House – On July 18, 1776, citizens gathered in the street to hear the Declaration of Independence read from the building’s balcony, the first public reading in Massachusetts.
The Freedom Trail – 2.5-mile-long path through downtown Boston that passes by 16 locations significant to the history of the United States
The Boston Massacre – Major event in the American Revolutionary War. British Army soldiers killed five male civilians and injured six others on March 5, 1770.
The Massachusetts State House – the state capitol and seat of government for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Federal Reserve Bank of Boston
I probably spend over 60% of my time here
Custom House Tower – Boston’s first skyscraper; completed in 1847
