Boston Massachusetts Attractions

Apr 1, 2008
Getting Around Boston:- When one considers a vacation, nine times out of ten it is somewhere in the deep southern coastal region or the Southwest area of the United States. It almost always has something to do with a beach or a massive amusement park or theme park. Rarely does one ever look to the North or the East for a vacation possibility. In all actuality, this is kind of sad, as most people are missing out on some truly exciting getaway possibilities by not looking to the Northeast, mainly, the area of Boston Massachusetts.

The Early American Origins:- Boston is a city that prides itself on virtually every aspect that it has a distinction in, but particularly that of the historical presentation. Unlike most United States cities, the average Boston child has an in depth knowledge about the history of his city. The adults are the same and go the extra mile to make sure that the visitor learns all that there is to know about it. Considering the fact that some of the greatest and most defining moments in United States History took place here, this makes Boston Massachusetts a great learning adventure for the family vacationer.

History by Land and Water:- Your dream historical vacation can begin with a little something that the entire family can enjoy, particularly the children. There are a number of fine tours in Boston Massachusetts that focus on everything from food to shopping. Yes, there is even a historical tour. It is called the Boston Duck Tour, and no, it does not have anything to do with the winged quacking creatures. This tour is via a Duck, which is the term that the United States used for a vehicle that could go on land or water. These ducks were largely used in World War two. On your duck journey you will visit many of the historical sites of the city, and even go across waterways by just driving off into them and up the other side. The sites are very inspiring and educational and include such historical markers as that of Bunker Hill, Copley Square and even the famed Boston Common area.

Time Travel by Foot:- For those who enjoy a good walk through history, there is the renowned freedom trail. This is a two and a half mile walking tour that leads you through the rich history of Boston on foot. There are sixteen historic sites that you will visit along with the beautiful Boston scenery along the way. There are museums, historical homes, cemeteries with famous names from history, and so much more. The best part of this particular tour is that you can actually take time to stop and look at the sites, as well as set your own pace. This is an excellent learning possibility for the children, and a good reminder for the adults of where this great country originated.

Instead of that same old beach front vacation to Myrtle Beach that you end up going on year after year, try something a little bit different on your next great vacation getaway. Instead of flying south with the geese, consider migrating north to a place where history began in Boston Massachusetts.
