Sights in Boston

Every city has their historic sites, in Boston, they seem to be on every corner. What better way to see the city than on a 2 hour trolly tour. Then you can let your feet do the walking around some of the key places.

Let’s start with the architecture of the beautiful cable-stayed Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge across the Charles River. This bridge, built in 2003, replaced the Charlestown Hill Bridge, built in the 1950’s.

When you don’t have a front or backyard, roof top gardening will do the trick.

The Massachusetts Statehouse built from 1795-1798.  Gilded in 1872. A stunning building.

You can’t go to Boston and not walk all or part of the 2.5 mile Freedom Trail, established in 1951.

Or miss Old Ironsides, USS Constitution built in 1795.

Trees, of course there are trees.

This is actually the same tree, just a gigantic branch.

I am going to save the beautiful church’s for another post, because I don’t know about you, but I’m getting hungry!  That can only mean one thing…head to the North End, to my favorite Italian restaurant, Ristorante Fiore on Hanover Street.

A little antipasto salad…

Followed by clams.  On pasta, in chowder; clams were a popular shell fish in Boston.

I guess I need to post at least one bird picture before I end this edition. Close your eyes, can you hear them? A bunch of quackers!

There is much more to come on this great vacation!  Come on back the next time!
