|Boston can easily be called one of the United State's oldest cities. In 1630 Boston was already a small town, and became a city in 1822. Since
then the city has continued to grow in number and size, gaining actual landmass over the last three centuries through the appropriation of near by towns, and through a landfill project
that resulted in the area called Back Day. Today Boston is a sophisticated city immersed in the arts and in our country's history, making Boston an ideal and interesting location for
travel and residency. You are just a short trip from Plymouth and many of the historical landmarks of the first pilgrims and America's first steps to becoming a country of its own.
There are so many places to see in Boston, the first thing you may want to do is get yourself a really good map for ease of maneuvering around the city. You will
also need a place to stay while in Boston. If you want to travel in history and style you should check out the Boston Harbor Hotel. Like most buildings and locations in
city, the Boston Harbor Hotel has a lot of history attached to it. The area called Rowes Wharf, where the hotel currently sits, was once the Sconce, or South Battery, in 1622, a protective
battery manned by a gunman in case of an invasion. Rowes Wharf is not manned by any gunmen today, but instead is home to the Boston Harbor Hotel that offers first class amenities to its guests.
