Boston
Boston
Boston is a famous historical and cultural city on America's east coast. To learn more about America's history, follow the red brick road of the Freedom Trail from one historical point of interest to the next, making stops at the Paul Revere House and notable buildings. While in Boston, you can also tour the campuses of world-famous universities, such as Harvard and MIT. Cheer for your favorite team at Fenway Park or spend the afternoon lolling about in the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere of the harbor area or one of the many green city parks. Local foods like lobster and clam chowder are two dishes that should absolutely not be missed while in Boston.

School
@travellerswillI preferred MIT over Harvard as it was a much laidback walk. There was less grass area but much more modern buildings. A visit was worth it but I wouldn't study there, not that it will improve my life. A waste of money to study there to be honest.
Boston Common

Kama CEstablished in 1848, the Boston Public Library is free to all, and has a great collection of books. The architecture of the old library is very regal and a beautiful sight to see. The new library is modern and is an extension of the old historic architecture - the 2 connected by a beautiful courtyard.
