Boston

Founded in 1630 by English colonists, Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States. A popular destination for European immigrants and a strategic harbor and military encampment during the American Revolution and the War of 1812, and was the center of the abolitionist movement that fueled the Civil War. Today, Boston's well-preserved history is on display along the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile walk through 16 of the United States' most historic sites. With three championship sports franchises, a world-renowned marathon, a thriving club scene and the Boston Pops Orchestra, Boston offers something for everyone.
