I just realized I never posted our pics from the Freedom Trail...which we walked way back in August. Ooops =(
Anyway, we decided to take the commuter rail into Boston rather than drive, because parking is apparently terrible and really expensive in Beantown. The train ride was pretty fun! Seeing as how we only have one car right now, when I get a job I will almost certainly be taking the train into work.

Once we got to Beantown, we decided we'd do an ultra-touristy thing (of course!) The Freedom Trail. We only walked the south part, figuring that the slightly more awe-inspiring Bunker Hill Monument and U.S.S. Constitution in the north part would be something visitors might want to do with us.
|Me posing with the sign on the Boston Common. Boston Common is America's oldest public park, and it was host to a camp of redcoats during the British occupation of Boston in 1775.|
|The Granary Burial Ground. I felt sorta weird taking pics of the graves, so I just got a pic of this sign. The people buried here include Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and Paul Revere. The biggest memorial was actually for Benjamin Franklin's parents!|
|So awesome...the balcony where the Declaration of Independence was read! At the Old State House|
