Boston Harbor

Summer in New England! Boston is wonderful! There is so much to do...so many neat American sites to see. We took a boat ride in the inner and outer harbors of Boston.










We rode the train into downtown this morning so we started the day off in Boston Common. In Boston Common they have this Frog Park for the kids to play in. Ben and Madi needed some fun like this.







Madi skipping and running after we got off our cruise around the Harbor...look at that view! This is on Long Wharf....the place were the last British soldiers left.


Paul Revere's home.



See the Old North Church...Paul Revere went there to warn the country of the march of the British troops coming....most of us know that story. Both the kids have learned all this in Social Studies and may have known more about this stuff than Steve and I.





Paul Revere's home and the Old North Church are in Little Italy. If you want to visit Italy all you have to do is come to Boston...their little Italy is HUGE and has everything you could want.





Boston is the place to have a summer home that's for sure.

We lived here for four years! Definitely lots to see! Sounds like you all are getting quite the adventure...

I don't know if its too late, but go to the top of the Prudential center and do the audio tour. It is neat to see that perspective! And if you go back through Rhode Island, I agree that you should check out the mansions!
