Boston

Standard

Maka dimulailah New England journey ini kami mulai. Saya, Irfan, Teddy dan Uni Wenda adalah kami berlima kali ini. Kami akan menjelajahi 5 negara bagian di ujung timur laut Amerika Serikat yang biasa disebut daerah New England. Jika ditilik nama-nama kota di sekitar 5 negara bagian ini, akan berasa kentalnya budaya Inggris Raya, karena banyak kota yang berbau Inggris.
Tur New England ini kami mulai dari Massachussets. Boston, ibukota negara bagian ini, menjadi kota pertama sekaligus markas dari perjalanan ini.
Semua dari kami sangat antusias akan Boston. Maklum, sebagian besar dari kami adalah mahasiswa, dan Boston adalah seperti kota pelajar di negeri Paman Sam, dengan banyaknya kampus berkualitas di kota ini. Tak heran jika prioritas kami adalah mengunjungi Harvard University dan Massachussets Institute of Technology (MIT).
The first place we visit is Boston Common. From this point, we trace the Freedom Trail. The Freedom Trail is the red path throughout downtown Boston, leading to 16 important historic sites. The Trails starts from Boston Common, and continue to Massachusetts State House, Park Street Church, Granary Burying Ground, King’s Chapel, King’s Chapel Burying Ground, Benjamin Franklin statue and former site of the first public school, Boston Latin School, Old Corner Bookstore, Old South Meeting House, Old State House, Site of the Boston Massacre, Faneuil Hall, Paul Revere House, Old North Church, Copp’s Hill Burying Ground, Bunker Hill Monument, and lastly USS Constitution.
In 1974, Boston National Historical Park was established. The National Park Service opened a Visitor Center on State Street, where they give free maps of the Freedom Trail and other historic sites, as well as sell books about Boston and US history. Today, people walk on the red path of the Freedom Trail to learn about important events as the people worked to gain independence from Great Britain.
