Boston Trip: Day One

We started our first day at a park that overlooks most of downtown.
The "Freedom Trail". We followed this line of bricks for 2.5 miles throughout the city to see all of the city's landmarks that played a role in our freedom from the British.

Love that line, "May the youth of today when they visit this old house be inspired with the patriotism of Paul Revere".

Cemetery in the middle of downtown. 

John Hancock's grave

Paul Revere's grave.

The pennies placed on his grave are thought to bring wealth to those who place them. Paul Revere was a silversmith, when he was not taking midnight rides, and also made pennies. 

Mother Goose's grave.

We were in Boston over St. Patrick's Day. Boston has one of the largest St. Patrick's Day celebrations in the world.

Looking towards Old North Church, the path which Paul Revere would have rode to warn that the British were coming. 

Old North Church. "One if by land, two if by sea..."
