Cities are exciting. There's so much to do, explore, and see!
Boston, Massachusetts, is filled with historical sites and architecture. It's a great place to visit and get a feel of what it was like when our country was just being settled. There's so much to see and do in this great city and much of it has historical significance.
During a recent trip to Boston, I snapped a slew of photos on a quick-as-a-flash car tour of the sites.
Here is the Marriott's Custom House. Its very top is home to peregrine falcons:
This is the old Boston State House. An area in front of it was the site of the Boston Massacre:
The current State Capital:
This is the John Hancock Tower. Trinity Church is at its base. This is a perfect juxtiposition of old and new. The photo on the right shows a reflection of the old John Hancock Building.
This fellow can be seen in front of the Green Dragon Tavern, a place that's been around since the 1650s. It was supposedly frequented by Paul Revere and his counterparts, including John Hancock. It's been said that plans for the invasion of Lexington and Concord took place right behind these very doors.
If you liked looking at these photos, stay tuned. There will be more posts on Boston coming up this week.
