To get a great feel for U.S. history, Boston is a perfect place to start your adventure. This town is sometimes referred to as "history by the water" for good reasons. If you're lucky enough to have a Boston timeshare, you can spend time in this historic, beautiful area during your favorite time of year. The sheer wealth of Revolutionary War and Colonial history here is astounding. Take a walk along the 3-mile historic Freedom Trail and you'll see 16 historic sites and monuments.
Places to See and Things to Do
Along the Freedom Trail is Paul Revere's house, Boston Common, the State House, the Old Granary Burial Ground, King's Chapel Burial Ground, the Old North Church, the Frigate USS Constitution, the Boston Massacre site, and Bunker Hill Monument. These impactful historical sites leave a huge impression on history buffs as well as people casually interested in history. Boston Common features a public garden area where people ride on swan boats on the lake, go skating with rental skates, and view gorgeous fall foliage and springtime blossoms.
Historic Beacon Hill is fascinating to architecture buffs and features the Bull and Finch, which was inspirational to the television show "Cheers." Other interesting sites to visit any time when you have a Boston timeshare include the Museum of Fine Arts with its Egyptian artifacts and impressionist paintings, the Museum of Science, Old North Church where lanterns were hung alerting Paul Revere of the impending British attack on Lexington, and North Bennet Street School where arts and skills like cabinetmaking, bookbinding and violin making were taught.
