Boston is home to a lot of great historic sites like the USS Constitution. There's also the Boston Tea Party site, Paul Revere's House and the Old North Church.
Caption: U.S.S. Constitution ("Old Ironsides") Boston Harbor, Massachusetts. Nicknamed when cannonballs bounced off her oak planking, Old Ironsides was undefeated in 40 historic battles. The ship, built in Boston in 1797, is still a U.S. Navy ship and a living museum of Naval History. Every year on the 4th of July, with decorative flags flying and her cannon booming, The Constitution is towed out into the harbor and turned around to permit even weathering at her permanent dock in Charlestown.
