Boston: the city on the hill, filled with incomparable historic sites, bustling neighborhoods, and cultural riches. One of the oldest communities in America, it also is one of the most forward-looking and youthful. Take a stunning pictorial tour of this Colonial gem that helped give birth to the United States, led by a professor who knows every lively detail of its highways and byways, its landmarks and hidden treasures, its stories and lore. Through remarkably beautiful images, Jonathan Beagle ushers readers through the Back Bay, with its public gardens, renowned Old South Church, and John Hancock Tower, to Bunker Hill House and the USS Constitution in the North End, to the surrounding Hub with its many museums, memorials, and universities (including MIT and Harvard). Visit Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market in the Financial District; the Long Wharf Marina and the Aquarium by the Waterfront; and the State House and African Meeting Hall on elegant Beacon Hill. And of course, what trip to Boston would be complete without a stopover at Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox? Beagle's engaging and knowledgeable commentary, along with the wealth of photographs, provide the perfect introduction to Boston for any native, visitor, or armchair traveler.
