As one of the oldest cities in the United States, Boston is a treasure trove of American history from the Boston Harbor where citizens protested at the Boston Tea Party, North Church where the famous "One if by land, and two if by sea" signal is said to have been sent, and Faneuil Hall where on its balcony, Samuel Adams and other patriots inspired citizens to fight for their freedom. And while this city embraces its past, it also celebrates the present and future by being a vibrant and cosmopolitan city.
