Stuffed to the gills with historic landmarks, Boston delivers education and excitement to students from all corners of the world of any age. Keep your eyes peeled as you meander along cobblestone streets that all eventually lead to more of the gorgeous colonial architecture that aid in the definition of the peak of Boston's time as the Cradle of Liberty. The American Revolution took it's first steps here, and the significance of this is apparent all around the city. Taking the Freedom Trail tour stops your group along 16 historically recognized sites as well as providing an opportunity to step off the trail to locations such as Dorchester Heights and the Commonwealth Museum. Head over to Plymouth Rock for a flashback to the 1620s beacon whose symbolic nature endowed the Pilgrims with religious freedom.
Also undeniable is the spectacular variety of menus! Seaside dishes include not only the traditional butter-basted lobster and steaming, tender clam chowder, but also the Chinatown twists for those with an adventurous palate! Here you may choose from deep-fried crab claw, fried quail, stir fry sea conch, walnut shrimp, shark fin, sea cucumber, a frog with veggies and many more curious concoctions! Some of the most highly regarded seafood joints in Boston range from Neptune Oyster and Belle Isle Lobster & Seafood to Island Creek Oyster Bar and D'Amelios Off the Boat Italian & Seafood Restaurant.
Boston also has a smattering of other less obvious entertainments such as visiting over 3,000 handblown glass plants at the Harvard Museum of Natural History's botanical gallery. Fenway Park is the ideal location for Red Sox fans while the Franklin Park Zoo caters to visitors seeking lions, tigers, and bears.
