Explore Boston On Foot

One of the best things about Boston is that most of its vibrant culture and rich heritage can be experienced for free. For visitors on a budget, there are plenty of cheap things to be enjoyed here. Did you know that the history of Boston is thoroughly intertwined with the history of America and its evolution? This city was founded by Puritan colonists from Europe in the 17th century. From being a devout Catholic settlement, Boston came a long way to playing an important part in the American Revolution and even housing the first school and college (Harvard) of the country.
