From its world famous Red Sox baseball team to its undisputed importance in American History (Boston was the home of such notable figures as Paul Revere and Samuel Adams), no city in the world is quite like Boston. The trademark Boston accent, a bit nasally with a heavy emphasis on the “ah” sound, is known internationally for better or worse.
The city’s reputation for crafting some of the finest baked beans on Earth is also well known and “Boston Baked Beans” are now a selling point as well as a wildly successful name for a candy made up of sugar coated peanuts.

Millions of people visit Boston each year to take in the incredible amount of historical sites located in this glorious city. The famed public park known as “Boston Common”, for instance, is the oldest one in the entire country and it regularly draws a crowd of gawking sightseers from around the world.
The Old John Hancock Building is another famous destination, with its well-known weather beacon consistently gleaming in the sky telling citizens the current weather conditions. Whenever this historic landmark is flashing, the citizens know that a Boston Red Sox game has been rained out. At a time like this, many Bostonians seek refuge in the many world class pubs and bars strewn throughout the city.
Though there are countless landmarks that attract people from all over the world, Boston’s greatest buildings and monuments have to do with American History primarily. Boston was around even before the United States was a nation and it was the center of the greatest struggles during the tumultuous time before the Revolutionary War.

The famed Boston Tea Party, for instance, happened right in the harbor after Bostonians snuck aboard a British ship and dumped out all the tea as a rebellion against the unfair tax practices of the U.K. The Boston Massacre also of course took place within the city and this famous “shot heard ‘round the world” was the catalyst for the future independence of this burgeoning nation.
Memorials can still be found in Boston detailing events like the Massacre, the famed Battle of Lexington and Concord, and the Siege of Boston, just to name a few. It isn’t only American history buffs that will be enthralled with Boston, however.
