Southern California - Los Angeles and San Diego: Sights, Sun and Silver Screen Stars....

Boston and the area surrounding the city provide a wealth of information about the history of our nation. Plymouth Rock, Salem, Lexington and Concord, the Freedom Trail, and Bunker Hill are only a few sites that should included on a trip to this city. Be a “Patriot” and help toss tea into the harbor off of the Boston Tea Party Ship.
