It was still 275km to Boston but we were there by late morning and had the rest of the day to explore. This was the last full day of the tour so I was determined to make the most of it. Tomorrow we would be returning to New York.
This is the gold domed Massachusetts State House.
This plaque embedded into the pavement is in honour of the Boston Latin School, the first public school in the USA. It was founded in 1635, followed a year later by Harvard, the nation's first university.
At the front of the State House there was a re-enactment of the changing of the guard which I found really interesting as it is similar to ceremonies we have here.
The Union Oyster House. This is the oldest restaurant in Boston which has been serving seafood since 1826.
Close by was a market with delicious looking seafood. A pity I had just eaten as I would have bought some crab or lobster to eat!
A view of the Zakim bridge named in honour of Leonard Zakim, a Jewish-American civil rights leader in Boston, who died in 1999
The former home of Paul Rever, the Revolutionary hero. Built in 1680 it is the oldest house in Boston.
We then walked down to the Charles River and enjoyed a stroll by the water.
Boston tea Party Museum. When you only have a few hours to visit a city it is difficult to include a Museum visit.
