Here is half the tour, rest next post. If you never get a chance to do this, enjoy!!
We began at Boston Common, America's oldest public park. Across this section of the park you can see the Massachusetts State House in the background. The Commons has been the site of hangings, duels, celebrations and speeches among other things.

Faneuil Hall served as a meeting place and open market. It was here the Bostonians began their opposition to British authority. The upper floor is still used today for public meetings
