About Boston

Boston is the capital city of Massachusetts. It is in the center of eastern Massachusetts along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. It was first settled in 1625 by Reverend William Blaxton, who was the sole European settler of the Shawmut Peninsula until he invited the Puritans in 1630. Before long, the Puritans had made the settlement theirs and Blaxton decided to move on, as his beliefs differed from theirs. These Puritans developed the settlement that would become the city of Boston.

After Blaxton left, the Puritans developed the first public school in the country, added public parks and a system of law that would lead to many executions based on religious beliefs. The following century, the town would change greatly and become the core of the American Revolution. Many of the buildings and graveyards of that time still exist in Boston.

At the heart of Boston are the Boston Common, the Public Garden and Beacon Hill. This is the area where the Puritans settled and the revolutionaries butted heads with the British. Following the Freedom Trail from the Common will take visitors by various churches, graveyards and schools. It will also take them to the markets where colonists used to shop for their groceries and where the generations after them expanded the market to accommodate a booming city. From there, the trail takes visitors down to the North End, where the finest restaurants in Boston are located. It ends at the Bunker Hill Monument. This walk, which can be achieved in a couple of hours, covers most of the heart of Boston.

The Back Bay can be reached by heading in the opposite direction of the Freedom Trail down Beacon Street from the Boston Common. South Boston and the Leather District are located away from the heart of Boston down Congress Street.
