We saw so much history as we walked all over the downtown Boston area. Our day started off at the USS Constitution, one of the first 6 ships built for the US Navy, which is still on active duty. Then we climbed the 294 steps all the way to the top of the Bunker Hill monument. In the museum across the street, we learned all about the battle, which was the first real battle of the Revolutionary War.

Along a 1.5 mile walk, we visited Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, and the Old South Meeting House, all places where history was made during the Revolutionary War. We wandered around Boston Commons and downtown before having dinner in the Green Dragon Tavern, where Paul Revere, Sam Adams, and other Patriots hung out. On the walk back to our car, we walked past Paul Revere’s house and the Old North Church, where the lanterns were hung to worn Charlestown that the British were coming.
