Even if you don't have much time in Boston take a quick walk to here and it's free. This was something we stumbled upon and it was moving as you read the signage. Showing our kids and explaining what it was about gave more of...More
Imagine standing inside a tight glass tower inscribed with millions of numbers tatooed on holocaust victims, with gas-like mist surrounding you, coming from vents under your feet. You are also standing over ember-like lights reminiscent of the ovens. You escape, only to find yourself in...More
My daughter and I stumbled across the Holocaust Memorial while visiting Boston. The memorial is composed of glass "stalls" which have steam rising up inside them. Each stall has a story as told by a Holocaust survivor engraved on the glass walls of the stall....More
I was doing fine until I read the inscription about the girl who had found a berry and carried it around on a leaf all day so she could give it to her friend. At that point I was a crying mess. Although it's not...More

This was a very moving experience for me, reading the stories and quotes, walking through this very beautiful poignant memorial sculpture, and feeling so deeply for all the millions of individuals lives that are represented so powerfully on this place.
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
