If Boston is famous for something, it’s The Tea Party. They have 2 ships and a well-run re-enactment running. (I do think I should have got in free!!). Anyway, you are given the name of someone who’s life you can follow, you join in the debate, and learn what happened. However, whatever the politics (No Taxation, Without Representation), I still think it was a waste of tea!!
Another place I visited was Quincy Market. If you want to buy and eat food, this is where to go.
I even had a Boston Clam Chowder (even though I don’t eat sea-food)
