Boston has animportant place in American history; considered by many to be the Birthplace ofAmerican Liberty, it played a major role of during the American Revolution. Bostonnow remains influential on the east coast, especially since the city isinseparable from science and education, and has the reputation of being one ofthe most affluent and most progressive cities in the United States.

It’s here that important events, such as the BostonTea Party and the Boston Massacre took place, spit is not surprising that history still plays an important role here.

You can follow this history through the FreedomTrail, a four kilometre long route from BostonCommon to Charlestown. This line of red bricks passes sixteen places that wereimportant to the American Revolution. The route passes attractions like thePaul Revere House and the Old South Meeting House, before ending at the USSConstitution, the oldest seaworthy warship in the world.

Boston is famousworldwide as the home of Harvard University. Few have the opportunity to studyat the prestigious university, but non-students can visit these magnificentbuildings. It’s well worth a visit, not least for the public to visit placeslike the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
