BOSTON IS A SENIOR DESTINATION



Seniors Enjoy A Most Historic City

boston-skyline1My wife, two daughters and I spent a summer living in a suburb of Boston, South Weymouth.  We learned to love the city. Great scenery, super suburbs and one of the most historic cities in the United States…a great senior destination.

Older than the United States itself by more than a century, Boston has been the site of some of the most significant events in U.S. history. Boston is the largest city in Massachusetts and its capital city as well.

Senior visitors can enjoy a baseball game at the historic Fenway Park where we took in a game with the Yankees to touring the spectacular Boston Museum of Science.

Seniors Walk the Freedom Trail

Founded in 1630, it’s one of the oldest cities in the U.S. The key role it played in the American Revolution is highlighted on the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile walking route of historic sites that tells the story of the nation’s founding.

The former meeting house, Faneuil Hall, is a popular marketplace. We enjoyed viewing the ancient cemetery in Boston with the names of many famous folks. Massachussets has 187 National Historic Sites and 58 of them are found in Boston.

Boston, first incorporated as a town in 1630, and as a city in 1822, is one of America’s oldest cities, with a rich economic and social history. What began as a homesteading community eventually evolved into a center for social and political change. Boston has since become the economic and cultural hub of New England, and home to over 617,000 residents.

This vibrant, thriving city is renowned for its cultural facilities, world-class educational institutions, champion sports franchises, as well as its place at the very forefront of American history.

Tourism is one of New England’s largest industries and Boston is willing to accommodate and entertain senior visitors as few other cities can.

Make sure you also explore some of Boston’s fine museums. Try the Gardner, featuring art masterpieces displayed in their collector’s mansion, old neighborhoods like the North End, and Boston’s Little Italy. And then spend a long evening in Downtown Boston, the lights are always on.

Seniors, you’ll love this wonderful city.  jeb
