The Freedom Trail, a walking trail along a red brick pathway, begins at Boston Common, the oldest city park in the country. Dating back to 1634, this 50-acre park is known as “America’s First Park.” The Central Burying Ground is located next to Boston Common. This burial ground was established in 1756 and contains the burial sites of British soldiers and famous composers and artists, such as composer William Billings.
Faneuil Hall, one of the stops on the freedom trail, opened in 1742 as an open-air market and meeting space. The meetings that took place involved the Sons of Liberty and talk of revolution, making Faneuil Hall the “Cradle of Liberty.” Other sites in the Downtown area include Kings Chapel, the Burying Ground, and the Old State House.
Boston has amazing nightlife, and some places, such as the Bell-in-Hand Tavern, have been local hotspots since the 1700s. The Bell-in-Hand Tavern was established in 1795 and is the country’s oldest still-operating tavern. From the elegant (such as The Estate) to fun places such as comedy clubs and local bars, Boston has something for every night-owl.
For those who enjoy cheering for the home team, Boston is a sports dynasty. Downtown is home to the Boston Celtics, 17-time World Champion NBA superstars.
