Old South Meeting House

The Old South Meeting House was originally built as a church by Puritans in 1729. This building went on to play an important role in the American Revolution as a gathering point for those seeking American independence from Britain. On December 16, 1773, over 5000 colonists met here to protest a tea tax. From the meeting, these protesters went to the waterfront and tossed crates of tea into the harbor. The act later came to be known as the Boston Tea Party. An in-house shop in the museum basement has small articles of the historic events that occurred here, as well as copies of books and documents of historical importance.

Faneuil Hall Marketplace

There are more than 100 places to eat, shop and drink at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, also known as Quincy Market. French merchant Peter Faneuil gave the hall that precedes the marketplace to his adopted home of Boston in 1742. It has been called the Cradle of Liberty because of the number of revolutionaries and abolitionists who delivered important speeches here. The hall is now a tourist center and place to shop, but public meeting facilities are still available.

New England Aquarium

Seit seiner Eröffnung 1969 ist das New England Aquarium eine Sehenswürdigkeit am Wasser, und hat sich zu einer der grössten Touristenattraktionen Bostons entwickelt. Das berühmteste Ausstellungststück ist der gewaltige rund 760.000-Liter fassende "Riesen-Ozean-Tank", der ein simuliertes karibisches Korallenriff besitzt, in dem Haie, Seeschildkröten, Muränen und tropische Fische an an das Glas gedrückten Kinderscharen vorbeikreuzen. Andere marine Galerien zeigen Piranhas, Seeotter und drei Arten von Pinguinen. Als wenn alles das nicht genug wäre, bietet das Aquarium auch whale watching cruises (Wal-Beobachtungsfahrten), Seehund-Shows, und sein ganz eigenes IMAX Theater.

Beacon Hill

Steeped in history, this is one of Boston's most beautiful neighborhoods. Home to statesmen, artists and intellectuals, "The Hill" is also the site of the State House, which is the beginning of the Freedom Trail. Lovely cafes and majestic brownstone buildings line the narrow, cobblestoned streets next to the Boston Common, America's oldest urban park. At the bottom of the hill, along Charles Street, are several antique shops and boutiques to pick up unique souvenirs. This charming neighborhood has managed to preserve its history without becoming artificially quaint. Another important and most visited feature of Boston is Acorn Street. This street is surrounded by beautiful colonial-style houses, giving it an earthy feel, which will transport you to the era gone by.

Copley Square

Boston has many important streets and squares, amongst them the Copley Square is certainly worth a mention. Nestled in the busy city neighborhood of Back Bay, this square is named after a renowned and talented painter, namely John Singleton Copley; it is also home to this painter's bronze statue. Copley is bounded by many tourist attractions that include Boston Public Library, John Hancock Tower, Bostix Kiosk, Museum of Fine Arts and Old South Church. However, the modern designer boutiques like Mont Blanc, Chanel and Bvlgari add a contemporary touch to this otherwise historic space. It also hosts Farmers Market from May till Thanksgiving. While you are in town, do make a point to visit this city square and the nearby landmarks.

John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum

In den Köpfen vieler Amerikaner ist die Erinnerung an den Präsidenten John F. Kennedy geheiligt. Die John F. Kennedy Presedential Library & Museum, ein Glas-Pavillion konstruiert vom chinesisch-amerikanischen Architekten I.M.Pei, ist seiner Erinnerung gewidmet. Die Besucher werden in die dunklen Tage des Kalten Krieges zurückversetzt. Ein Kurzfilm erzählt JFK's Handlungen in seinen eigenen Worten, während authentische Fotos und Ausstellungsstücke die kurze Zeit in der Geschichte des Weissen Hauses, die Nostalgiker als "Tage von Camelot" bezeichnen, in Erinnerung rufen.
