Trourist Attractions of Boston

Boston holds a rich history in its chest and “Freedom Trail” is a convenient arrangement to savor that history. It is a walking tour of sixteen historic sites which is four kilometres long. Freedom Trail begins at Boston Common. It then goes through downtown Boston, the North End and Charlestown and ends at the USS Constitution. The sites include the old State House, Faneuil Hall, Paul Revere’s House and the Old North Church. The Freedom Trail connects to Boston Harbor Walk and is marked by a line of red paint or red brick in the sidewalk.

Another attraction is an opportunity to watch Whales in high speed catamarans. These catamarans are cozy affairs with experts to guide you through the experience.

The downtown area is a treat to eyes and edifying. The area and surroundings consist mostly of low rise brick or stone buildings and homes many older buildings in the Federal style. Several of these buildings find the company of modern high rises especially in Financial District, Government Center, South Boston waterfront and Back Bay. These high rises include many prominent landmarks such as the Boston Public Library, Christian Science Center, Copley Square, Newbury Street and John Hancock Tower and Prudential Center – the last two being the tallest buildings of New England. Near the John Hancock Tower is the old John Hancock Building. Its main attraction is its prominent weather forecast beacon. The weather to come is indicated by the color of the illuminated light. Steady blue means clear view; flashing blue tells clouds are due; steady red means rain ahead and flashing red means snow will fall instead. In the summer, flashing red informs that a Red Sox game has been rained out.

Then, there is the South End Historic District which has smaller commercial areas interspersed among single family homes and multifamily row houses made of brick or wood.  Currently, it is the largest surviving contiguous Victorian era neighborhood in the United States.

Boston Common is the oldest public park in the United States. It is located near the Financial District and Beacon Hill. Then, there is Boston Public Garden near to it. Jamaica Pond is the largest body of freshwater in the city. Franklin Park is the largest park of city and homes Franklin Park Zoo. All these parks are part of Emerald Necklace which is a string of parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted to encircle the city. Esplanade, which is located along the banks of Charles River, is another major park. Located near to Charles River Esplanade is an outdoor concert venue, the Hatch Shell. Parks are scatters throughout the city and the major parks and beaches located near Castle Island, in Charles town and along the Dorchester, South Boston and East Boston shorelines.
