Charles River
As a retiree I find living in Boston to be an easy city to walk from neighborhood to neighborhood. Boston is not only known for its old world charm and cultural activities, i.e. Boston Symphony, Museum of Fine arts and theatres, it also has a huge sports fan base with the Celtics and Bruins playing at the 'Garden', the Red Sox at Fenway Park, and also the Patriots in Foxboro.

From the narrow streets of the North End, follow the Harbor Walk around Boston harbor, and walk back along the Rose Kennedy Greenway (i.e. the infamous ‘Big Dig’) visiting Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market where there are still signs reminding us that it was once a wholesale market. Walk over to Beacon Hill and then onto Back Bay. Follow the Freedom Trail for history starting on Boston Common taking you to the Constitution (Old Ironsides) and onto Charlestown ending at the Bunker Hill Monument. Stop in any pub or restaurant on the way for some New England Clam Chowder, Maine Lobster, or freshly caught Atlantic Fish.

Stroll the Esplanade beside the Charles River, where the Hatch Shell has outdoor summer concerts. Boston is also evolving into a more modern city - the Seaport District has newly constructed private residences, new marinas, offices and restaurants as well as a new convention center. All of Boston is easily accessible either by foot or by public transportation - the 'T' as we know it.

Please also look at a few photos of Paris, France; Dorset, England and some interesting UK pub signs.
