    Favorite thing: The Boston Harbor. I love to see the ships and I enjoy the Harbor activities.
    There is a trail called 'Harborwalk' It begins at the Old State House and takes you to the Center of merchant exchanges from captains and businessmen long ago.Then to the Quincy Market and Custom House Tower 1837,where capitains returning from the see,reported here.
    Christopher Columbus Park, Long Wharf with its whale watch boats and service tour Boston Harbor islands.It also has a water shuttle to Charlestown Navy yard where the ' Old Ironside' is berthed.
    Museum Wharf is the home of the Children's Computer Museum

    Favorite thing: Go to boston harbor, walk around take in the history and all that happened there over 200 years ago.It's a nice walk from Boston tea party ship to The Wharf and the Aquarium.Work your way to Faneuil Hall & Market Place. Loads of places to eat & shop. Just arcoss is The Old state house. this is where they read the Declation of Independece for the first time from it's balcony.The Old North Church is very near by in the North End. After you see it jump on a tour bus to get you to USS Consitution.( I don't Usally do the Tour Buses but these were $10 for on and off all the sites all day)Old Ironside is free to public and the tour is a must. To think what this ship did for this country's freedom and it's history will swell any hard heart.Take in Beacon Hill . It is as it was 200 years ago . Cobble stone roads, gas light post on streets. While there stop in at the Bull & Finch. You know it CHEER's. It was a little hard to find but the local's were a great help in finding it. It was not at all what I had expected , very tiny but there is a nice place to get a bit to eat and of course they have the cheer's gift shop. You are the middle of The best college's in the country each has it's own tour. Well worth the trip .Harvard, MIT, Cambridge to name a few.

    Fondest memory: Walking Beacon Hll at night. Your mind wonder's as you step on the cobble stones wondering what great stateman of the past walked these same roads. very romantic with the gas street lights and 200 year old brownstones.
