It Isn't Called Plymouth Boulder

I've enjoyed and celebrated this time in many locations over the years. Looking back, I think one of the best places to spend July 4th is in the city of Boston. Where else to honor and celebrate our nation's history than in the city where patriotism began? Find yourself along the Freedom Trail on that day and you become part of the reenactments, mingling with and watching costumed actors recreate parades and the excitement of the period. At the Old State House, you can hear the Declaration of Independence read from the balcony, something that was done for the public for the first time at this same location on July 18, 1776.

Even though I sound as if I'm working for the Boston Tourism office (I'm not), if you're looking for a place to go next month, or even next year at this time, consider this great city. Better yet, check the Boston tourism site and www.thefreedomtrail.org for a schedule of events. It truly is one of America's greatest cities and you'll certainly feel the patriotism on such a patriotic holiday.
