Flight Boston: New England’s historic center
Enjoy your comfortable Lufthansa flight to Boston, the former center of the American Revolution and today’s center of higher learning in America. It is one of the oldest cities of the United States, first established in the early colonial period, only a short while after the Pilgrim Fathers had created Plymouth Plantation. The Boston Tea Party of 1773 put the city into the history books, but also into the crosshairs of the British Empire.
Boston: walking the Freedom TrailYou just can’t under-estimate the role Boston played in the historic conflict between the revolutionary forces and the English crown. Every American knows about The Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party or the Battle at Bunker Hill. Boston came up with the Freedom Trail, which is a trail of red brick inserted into the streets and goes along the Bunker Hill Monument, the Old State House and Faneuil Hall. The Freedom Trail starts at Boston Commons, the oldest public park in the U.S., and ends in Charlestown. It is a great way to have a healthy walk and learn a lot about American and local history.
Boston: thanks for all the fish!Boston is a center of culture and of learning. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University, two of the most important universities of the USA, are near Boston. American literature was heavily influenced by Bostonions like Henry David Thoreau, Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emmerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes and Nathaniel Hawthorne. You can take a tour to see the homes of all these famous writers, which are quite near to each other. Popular holiday destinations with beautiful sand beaches along the Atlantic are just a short ride from downtown Boston. Martha’s Vineyard, Marblehead and The Hamptons are all in the vicinity. Exploring the coast of New England on historic Windjammer ships is another great way to have a great time. Boston is the paradise for the lovers of seafood: lobster fresh from the sea bottom, clam chowder, oyster, swordfish, tuna, bass and halibut, it doesn’t get any better than in the traditional fish restaurants in Boston. Have a great time with your Lufthansa flight to Boston!
