BC: The End | Through the Boston
FC: Boston is a city that has three time periods. Past, present and future. | Through the Boston | By Joseph Kang
1: The city of Boston attracts over 12 million annual visitors from across the country and around the globe. The city is famous for its cultural facilities, world class educational institutions, champion sports show, as well as its place at the very beginning of American history. Tourism is one of the New England's largest industries; as the region's social and advertising "hub", Boston is a city which has entertaining features as other few cities.
2: Downtown Crossing: you will find a range of national department stores, small shopping out lets and you'll also find various features of Boston. | Newbury Street: World modernized shopping in some of Boston's most fashionable stores.
3: Boston is a state which has an exhaustive American history. Much of the political revolutions that spawned the nation took place here, and visitors are often attracted by the dense concentration of sites. Yet Bostonians refuse to see their hometown as some sort of frozen-in-time memorial to the days of past. This is a living city—not a living history museum—and, as such, it continues to evolve. The Cradle of Liberty. The Hub of the Universe. The Athens of America. These are big words for a mid-sized city. But Boston lives up to them. With its rich history, grand architecture and world-famous academic and cultural institutions, the city sustains the glory it has gathered over the last four centuries.
4: Faneuil Hall has served as a market place and a meeting hall since 1742. Funding was provided by a wealthy merchant, Peter Faneuil. Inspirational speeches by Samuel Adams and other patriots were given at Faneuil Hall. these speeches became the footstool for America's desire to obtain independence from the British. It is still regularly used by people. | Boston Massachusetts State House:Built in 1798, the new State House is located across from the Boston Common on the top of Beacon Hill. the land was once owned by Massachusetts first elected governor, John Hancock.

7: From Boston's doorstep to New Hampshire, from the roar of the Atlantic Ocean to fields, woods and streams along I-93, Massachusetts' northeast corner is an area that has great opportunities to enjoy vacation. Just minutes from Logan Airport and commuter rail lines, linked by Routes 1, I-95, I-93 and I-495, North of Boston offers heart-stopping scenery, a wealth of first-class museums, shops and galleries along with many of New England's finest restaurants and hotels. | Boston's strength, diversity and vitality are all rooted in its neighborhoods, where neighborhood pride and cultures from all over the world are celebrated. Although each neighborhood has its own personality and distinct appeal, all of the neighborhoods demonstrate Boston's changing looks, as this historic capital has become a magnet for all of the world's citizens.
8: Since Boston is bordered by Boston Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean, its coastal climate tends to be milder than inland locations -- Boston rarely experiences either extreme heat or cold. The spring and summer months of April through June and the early fall months of September through mid-November are the most enjoyable, temperate seasons. At other times during the year, low pressure systems pass frequently and produce rain, on average, one out of three days. Coastal storms-which Bostonians refer to as "northeasters" or "nor'easters"- produce much of the rain and snow. The main snow season occurs from December through March.
9: Bostonians don't like people who treat Boston like a frozen city in the past like a living historical site. Bostonians usually do not have appropriate dress for weathers ,but Bostonians prepare for the winter.

11: 5-4-2012 What a nice nap! 3 hours, I just slept in the plane. With sleepy eyes I saw that Boston is such a well blended city that made me immediately wake my brain. Right off the plain I needed to know where I should go. I used airport's computer to choose my place. First I decided to go to Boston's downtown. I used a bus to go there. It was really crowded however it was modernized really well than I thought. I spent too much time just looking around. I should look around to find an inn somewhere.
12: 5-5-2012 I woke up early to go to Harvard University. I decided to use taxi to go there. It was really easy to find taxi that Kansas. It took 20 minutes. Roads were crowded with cars everywhere. Fortunately Traffic jam did not occur. Finally I arrived near Harvard University. Taxi driver said it will take about 3 minutes. It looked really outmoded because of the long period I think. I am going to East coast Grill to eat some barbecue with some seafood. I think I will hang around here 9:30 and go back to inn.
13: 5-6-2012 I slept late. Yesterday's supper was delicious. I asked restaurant's manager about Boston and she said I should visit Faneuil Hall. This building is is historically important. It was used in revolutionary war. I don't want to introduce it thoroughly because I don't have time right now. I'll add some tomorrow.
14: South Korea and Boston are on the edge of continents. They both were colonies of other count | 5-7-2012 Boston Science Museum is near here. I know it is not an interesting place. I am really sad that I can't go to Boston Red Sox's game. I will go and watch the game someday. I forgot to write about Faneuil Hall. It had four floors. It was really fascinating that people can build those kind of building in 1700s. I have to live tomorrow at 4pm but I had so much fun. Boston science museum is waiting for me, I should leave right now.
15: South Korea and Boston are on the edge of the continents. They bothe were colonies of other countries | South Korea and Boston are on the edge of the continents. They both were colonies of other countries when imperialism and nationalism over conquered the governments. South Korea was separated by a conflict of ideals when a civil war occurred. However Boston has gone through a civil war and it is not separated.
16: I learned that this journey in Boston was a fanfare of eastern states in U.S. I now that Boston doesn't show all of easter states' images ,but i was able to learn about how eastern states were by time and people. Especially the weather was mild everyday when i was here which made me wonder, 'Does Boston have other weathers?' This journey; everlasting experiences of new culture was and is prominent to me.
17: 3 pm, it is time to go back to Kansas. I got an hour so, i don't have to hurry, but just in case I am packing up. 4 days in Boston was fun. I was excited about seeing world's famous university, Harvard. it was little negligible than what i expected. Anyway view of Boston's downtown had a mixture of all eons since Boston was discovered. I'll never forget this journey, and i don't want to lose fun moments i had in Boston.
