What rivers are in Boston


Small guide: Boston

Boston is culture and knowledge. There are many excellent universities. The city conveys a dignified atmosphere. The Boston Tea Party is very famous and you can also visit a replica of the ship. There are also a lot of sights, especially a lot of art museums. The capital Boston is particularly easy to discover on foot. From Back Bay to Newbury Street and Beacon Hill to the North End: In addition to a variety of luxury boutiques and gourmet restaurants, one encounters history and culture here in compact form. In the middle of the city is the “Public Garden” with its swan boats and right next to it is the “Boston Common”, a huge city park where the British troops once used to drill and now families are looking for relaxation and recreation. From there, a clearly visible (partly paved, partly painted) red marker guides visitors on the “Freedom Trail” past 16 of the city's most important monuments and landmarks that played a decisive role in the US's struggle for independence. The uprising against the colonial power began here in 1773 with the famous "Boston Tea Party", here Paul Revere announced the arrival of the British on his midnight ride and here the colonies won one of their most important victories in the Battle of Bunker Hill. It is not for nothing that Boston is called the “cradle of freedom”. Not only those interested in history get their money's worth in Boston, because Boston is still flourishing around the memorable places. Among other things, the Freedom Trail leads to the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, built in 1742, and the Haymarket. On the opposite side of the Charles River (130 km in length, the longest river in the state), which flows into the Atlantic Ocean, you can visit the oldest floating warship, the USS Constitution, in the former naval shipyard in Charlestown, and the USS Constitution is just opposite Cassin Young, a WWII destroyer.

On the left bank of the Charles is also the somewhat sloping, somewhat freaky Cambridge with Harvard University and the world-famous Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.). (And based on the principle of “early practice”, Massachusetts also has eight children's museums that are entirely geared towards the interests and understanding of the little ones.) Boston is also a Mecca for sports. Professional baseball (Red Sox), basketball (Celtics), ice hockey (Bruins), football (Patriots) and soccer (Revolution) teams are at home here - and most of them are extremely successful in their respective sports. There are also popular sporting events every year such as the famous Boston Marathon.
