Land of Patriots and Red Coats - Boston

Boston is the "Cradle of Liberty" and the place where ideas for the American Revolution were first pre-conceived. It is rich in American colonial history... where Patriots staged the "Boston Tea Party" and Red Coats battled on Bunker Hill. It is the place where the spirit of "No Taxation without Representation" originated.

Boston is home to the USS Constitution, old Gothic churches and the first public school in America. Boston is Paul Revere, Peter Faneuil, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin, JFK, Mitt Romney, Barney Frank, Ted Kennedy, Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and 60 colleges of higher learning.
